special kiltpin for her fiancée
Katie wanted me to make a special kiltpin for her fiancée as a gift from her in recognition of the beautiful engagement ring he had purchased for her.
I began by showing Katie a previous kiltpin design that was a bit unusual but still traditional. She particularly liked the drop handled sword idea but wanted to incorporate symbolism appropriate to both herself and her fiancée.
She mentioned that he was English by birth and I suggested a thistle on the pommel of the sword symbolising her and an English rose at the hilt representing him.
That sounds great”…………..it did, although I wasn’t quite sure how I was going to model an old fashioned English rose !!!!!
