Child’s Handwriting Trinket Box

£39.41

  • This is a very special jewellery/trinket box, hand engraved with a copy of a child’s handwriting. Just send us a photo of the handwriting you would like us to copy, and we will use traditional methods to engrave it onto the glass lid of the jewellery box.
  • Size approx 16cm x 10cm x 5cm
  • Makes a lovely gift for Nanny from a grandchild
  • Up to 50 characters of handwriting included – please get in touch if you need more characters.
  • You will need to take a photo of the sample writing you want us to copy, and send it to us as an attachment to covecalligraphy@btinternet.com using your name as the email title please.
  • Made from glass, mirror and rose gold coloured mixed metal edges. Black flock material on underside.
  • We don’t use any laser machines or digital equipment, so your ‘handwriting’ gift will be engraved by hand especially for you, just like this:  – we literally trace the writing through the glass with pen, and then engrave it on using a diamond tipped pendant rotary drill, adjusting by eye where necessary so that it looks lovely! A vacuum clean, then a polish and shine up…and there you have it – personalised by hand for you, with care and love. Please note, the handwriting is hand engraved, not lasered, so we copy it by eye rather than it being an exact digital copy as you would get from a laser machined gift – hand engraving is not an exact science, but hopefully you can see from the photos on the listing that we are very good at what we do!!

Engraving on Glass

Engraving is done by hand and using traditional techniques, and there is not a laser machine or sandblaster in sight!  The lettering is drawn out in our calligraphy font to make sure it will fit nicely, and then copied onto the glass using a non-permanent ink pen, because we found this works best for us.  Once that is done and we are ready to start engraving then it’s on with the mask and gloves. A large powerful vacuum extractor sucks up all the glass dust and we also use a bright illuminating spotlight.

To engrave, a pendant drill is used (very similar to a dentist’s drill) fitted with a diamond coated spherical burr.  This whizzes round at super speed and takes off a fine top layer of the glass. Our beautiful calligraphy font takes 2 coats because we use one for the initial lines, and then back again to thicken up all the down strokes, to give it that impressive italic quality.

Once the engraving is finished, the glass is given a good wash to remove any remaining pen marks, and then dried and polished to a high shine.

Our glass gifts are wrapped in navy blue acid free tissue paper, using corrugated card and scrunched up paper to protect the glass where we can, therefore avoiding plastic bubble wrap.   This all goes inside a new postal box, gets collected by Royal Mail, and then delivered to you!
