I have a project that has been bouncing around my head for awhile now and it would be awesome if I could work with someone who is actually artistic to try and bring it to life.
There is someone very close to me who is currently going through a VERY tough time in their life (rehab level rough). Their Birthday is next week and while I cannot actually give them anything at this time, I wanted to show them a depiction of what I want to make for them once I get my GF.
The Idea is to make a pendant on a Necklace that says “I’ve Made it” on the front, and “This far” on the back. It’s symbolic of their journey through this difficult period. A brave face to show to the world (I’ve Made it) and a personal encouragement that they can take at least one more step (This far).
Currently my efforts end up just being slanted text on a small piece of wood (1" square) and I’d like to give them something a little nicer looking than that. I’m not 100% sold on doing this on wood if a different medium would look better (etching stone to symbolize permanence of resolve for instance).
So really two separate requests. First is a design and the second is material to put it on (including how to attach it to a necklace). I’m hoping this is a simple sort of thing for someone who is more artistically inclined than myself.
