When you dedicate your life towards a goal and then, through hard work and dedication, achieve that goal you have good reason to celebrate. Two years ago that's just what Stacy V. did when her husband developed a drug to combat Cystic Fibrosis. Stacy wanted to incorporate the chemical compound into the design of 14K cufflinks. At first glance the design might seem simple with small letters and simple shapes made of straight lines, but turning that into a stamped image that looks good can be quite challenging. We took great care to make sure we created a stamping tool that would be clear and accurate to the original image. The result was exactly what Stacy was looking for.
As all well accomplished and successful people tend to do after an achievement, Dr.V continued his efforts working toward developing more life saving drugs. Two years later he passed another major milestone and developed a second life saving compound. Stacy approached us again to memorialize the new compound in another set of cufflinks. This time around the design was substantially more challenging. While we can't comment to the chemical complexity, from a visual standpoint the image was more detailed and much wider. To fit that design on the cufflinks we had to use a slightly larger round charm and scale the image down. Scaling the image down required that we paid meticulous attention to the tooling design. Some of the characters and lines in the design were smaller that the smallest fonts we use to stamp. In addition to that some characters were a fraction of a millimeter apart. As with the first time, our attention to detail paid off with a faithful recreation of the chemical compound on the cufflinks.
We congratulate Dr.V and Stacy for such amazing accomplishments and thank them for being repeat customers and for challenging our skills.

Running a small business takes a lot of focus. Andreas and I work hard every day to make great jewelry and grow our business. We are constantly presented with challenges from the fabrication to the business management. It takes a lot of gumption and fortitude.
Often my plate is full with just the creative work and Andreas will deal with escalated situations that may arise from time to time. I am always amazed at his resilience under pressure. While I am sure my support plays a big role, I know he is quick to credit his background in Wrestling and Jiu Jitsu as foundation for much of his success. If you saw the way they trained, you would understand why. He even met one of our first employees through training.
For the past several years Andreas has been training at a Relson Gracie Academy in the Savannah area. Mr. Gracie is the eldest son of the late Helio Gracie, the man credited with refining traditional Japanese Jiu Jitsu into the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu we know today. Relson Gracie was the Brazilian National Champion for 22 years and has continued the development of Jiu Jistu in his father’s footsteps.
Today Reslon still dedicates his life to Jiu Jitsu and travels the world teaching his art. A couple of times a year Relson comes to Savannah to teach seminars and work directly with his students. On one of his visits we made him a custom Dog Tag Necklace to show our appreciation. The silver charm has Relsons Initials and a re-creation of his logo. The triangle is 14K gold. On the back is a thank you note and initials so he knows who it’s from.
Relson was elated to get such heart felt gift as a thank you. We hope to make some more great items for him in the future.
