D&A Personalized Collection Digital Painting and Rendering Image 001.

This is a digital rendering I created in Photoshop of our new Demian&Alex personalized collection.  Demian and I meet to discuss the various shapes and silhouettes we think will compliment our line.  I then commence on many rough sketches... and more rough sketches with some other rough sketches.  After I have achieved some decent blisters on my fingers, I start the digital rendering and painting phase of the design process.  Above is one of the products of this process.  I won't bore you with the details of this process, but there will be a rendering video to follow soon.

The D&A personalized collection will contrast our Sanctuary collections by offering a classic look and feel.  Our customer can purchase one personalized pendant at a time, or a complete necklace with multiple pendants, stones and pearls.  We will be introducing some new chic ways to hang the pendants in the near future as  well...  Please let us know what you think about the upcoming collection.

Here's a sneak peak of our new D&A personalized collection.  This collection will be fabricated in a myriad of different and exciting materials including sterling silver, 14k yellow gold, copper, gold vermeil, precious and semi-precious stones... and the list goes on.  We are developing this collection so that we may offer our customer a way to express themselves through our jewelry.  The number of combinations that you, our customer, will be able to mix and match these pieces will be endless.

We will also offer the option of integrating your own photos into the pendants for total personalization, as well as name and message stamping directly into the silver or gold, to commemorate a special occasion, or significant date.

The pieces will cover the spectrum in price.  You can create your own, one of a kind personalized necklace... and order it in solid gold and diamonds if you wish.  Be on the lookout for many more "sneak peaks" to come.  There is a lot of exciting design and fabrication happening in the D&A studios.

Large stone silver dog tag pendants by Demian & Alex

Sterling silver dog tag pendant with cushion cut amethyst.One of the many unique designs you'll find in the D&A collections are the large stone dog tags.  We integrate these fabulous, in some cases - one of a kind, stones into the center of the pendant.  It's very unlikely you'll find this look and feel in any other collection, and if you do... they hijacked it from us! This on dog tag in particular has a nice large, cushion cut amethyst stone with skull and crossbones and roses.  We have a nice selection of large stone dog tags you can view in the "catalog at a glance" portion of this site, or on our retail site - DandABrothers.
