Commission: Shining Armor's Cloak Pin by SilverSlinger Commission: Shining Armor's Cloak Pin by SilverSlinger
A commission for :icondrakmire:

Edit: No this pin was not actually in the show. I called it the "Shining Armor's Cloak Pin" because it was designed for a Shining Armor Cosplay

First time making something like this...It was challenging but a lot of fun! Entirely hand crafted! The backplate and Luna alicorn are made from steel sheet, the star and Celestia alicorn are made from silver, the straight pin is made from steel wire, and the stone is a blue foilback rhinestone. The outer diameter of the circular piece is 4.5cm (!.75in) and the inner diameter is 3.5cm (1.4in).

The detail on the alicorns is all hand engraved; and the finished is a brushed finish. Best part, however is the assembling process. It took three different types of welding to get this piece together: Soldering, low temp. soldering, and tacking.

On a final note I just want to say how much I appreciate this fandom! You guys are always giving me new challenges to keep me on my toes :D It's tons of fun, and I love it!

You make the most amazing fan jewelry I have ever seen. What classes did you take? What materials do you use and could I buy them anywhere?

Thanks very much :D Lets see: My dad taught me the basics, I took a class on hand engraving, and the rest is self taught. I mostly use silver, copper, brass, and steel. The copper, brass and steel I get from a local hardware store, the silver sheet and wire, solder, and gemstones I get from a wholesaler. Unfortunately you have to have a jewelry storefront to shop with them.

I usually don't discuss prices on commissions openly. Some people I do the commissions for don't want that information disclosed.
