Traditional Techniques: Hand Engraving
Hand engraving is the art of carving words or patterns onto metal, using a specialised tool called a graver. This traditional technique has been used for centuries to create intricate and detailed designs onto decorative objects and adornments.
The intricate craft of hand engraving requires great skill and precision, as even the slightest mistake can ruin the entire design. Engravers must have a steady hand and a keen eye for detail, as well as a thorough understanding of the materials and tools they are working with.
is one of the many traditional hand skills our artisans use to add unique details and personalisation when creating our jewellery.
Despite the option of modern technology, here at Hellcat we prefer to create our designs using the highly sought-after skill and art form of hand engraving.
This ancient technique is a nod to our jewellery quarter heritage and we believe it adds a personal touch as every item is truly unique.
Hellcat offers our hand engraving service where you personalise your jewellery or choose pieces from our collection that hand engraved details like our Memento Mori Rings, Til Death Wedding Rings or bespoke necklaces.
