Wow! What an amazing experience working with you all to create a truly special piece of jewellery! Using inherited pieces and combining them together was a wonderful idea. I enjoyed each step of the way from the initial hand sketches, CAD visuals and finally the finished article. Every time I look at it I smile and remember the very special people who left me the jewellery to be able to do this. Lara D-J. Facebook review.

A CAD Designed BMW Motor Bike
- Silver BMW, not a normal request, but we enjoyed the process from start to finish, especially as it was to be used as a memorial trophy for the Army.
-We were told that the trophy needed to be a version of a BMW motorbike so the first thing we did was choose a BMW K1300R. Due to the immense detail needed and the budget we had to work to, we obtained a 3d computer aided design template to begin with. We worked on top of the template, changing dimensions, the overall weight of the bike and also turning the computer aided model into a file that could be cast in Silver in two pieces. Once we had the go ahead after emailing a render of the model, complete with base and plaques, it was time to find a company to cast the bike.
-Once we found a company who could cast the bike at the size we required, we then received the bike cast in silver and in two parts. It was then time to solder the parts together and hand polish.
-Finishing touches were then added to the bike, a personalised number plate and an oxidised finish to high light the detail.
-Finally we mounted it onto a display plinth together with engraved plaques.
