Pendant Classic Style

Notice: If you are interested in the Contemporary Style Pendants which are not the same as these samples showing on this page then you need to click the link here to see the "Contemporary ones" or contact the artist via email at DanielNie@aol.com for details. The face of the pendant in Contemporary Style does not have an ivory-look but it looks solid silver or gold, and the letters are not painted but engraved.

A wonderful gift for weddings, engagements, and anniversaries.

It is a unique gift for bridesmaids, or any individual’s birthday, graduation, etc.




Your pendant is virtually maintenance free. However, to prolong the life of your pendant, it should not be rubbed against your clothes or scratched or washed in any way. Do not wear the pendant in the rain or while swimming, taking a shower or bath.

Each pendant is individually hand made by the artist Daniel Nie through the following process:

The artist turns the letters from your name into a unique design by overlapping the letters to become a beautiful composition. You may discover that the artist uses one letter to represent all other repeated letters in the name/word or words. The artist uses a method of integration to make one part of the letter shared with other letters. For example, the letter “E” may share with “F,” “L,” etc. This method of integrating letters is necessary for fitting the name(s) into a small space on the pendant. Please have fun with finding all your letters in the design.  The design on your pendant may look different from a design that the artist would do on a larger piece of paper in a wall hanging piece (please view those wall hanging samples on our website). The calligraphy has no fixed formula so each design is a unique creation of artistic genius.

The design is first created on a circular or square piece of rice-colored material, which is then mounted on a sterling silver pendant. The face of the pendant is treated so it is waterproof and maintenance free.  However, you should not wear it in the rain or while swimming, taking a shower or bath. The face of the pendant should not be rubbed against your clothes or scratched or washed in any way. You need to treat it as a piece of expensive artwork. I am sure you will enjoy to show off this unique piece of jewelry.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact the artist directly. 



All round and square pendants are in one size (see photos below).
These pendants and chain are all in silver. They are not available in gold.
Please view the following samples:

see: Sarah (sterling silver,  round 25mm)


see: Eva (sterling silver, square 16x16mm)

Do not forget to order a chain: 18"/2.2mm silver

Q and A:

(Please feel free to contact the artist for any questions 703-858-7161)

Q:How do I know what my name will look like?

A: Because your name-pendant will be created as a unique original, it is not something pre-made that you can preview. However, by looking at samples on this website, you will have a good idea about the general style of these beautiful pendants. You do not have to worry about the beauty or the quality of your order; your satisfaction is money back guaranteed.

Q: How long can a name(s) be? What about initials?

A: There is no limit for the number of letters in a name or word, but we suggest you use the short version of a name if you can. We can do a maximum of 2 names together on one pendant. This makes a wonderful gift for a couple. If you are considering gifts for a family (i.e. multiple names ), we suggest you order each name as a separate pendant. However, you may also take the first letter or initial from each individual member’s name to combine into one pendant as a family piece (e.g. see Fig.3: family piece, parents + children - J.V.C.E.)
Please feel free to consult with the artist if you have further questions.

Q: What are the styles and dimensions of the pendants and the chains?

A: These silver pendants come in two styles: 25mm diameter circle and 16x16mm square shapes. The thickness of each pendant is 3mm.
We offer 18" long silver chains. The chains come in two styles: Elegant Twist (2.2mm in thinkness) and Bold Links (2.7mm in thickness). Please indicate your choice in your order.

Q:How heavy is the pedant? Will it break if I drop it on the floor?
How do I take care of the jewelry?

A: Because the pendant is made of sterling silver and artificial leather it is very light, and it is unlikely to be broken if it is dropped. The pendant is maintenance free. However, if you wish to polish the silver part you may use 3M's Tarni-Shield Silver Polish or Twinkle Silver Polish, which you can find in your local hardware or department stores. The face of the pendant should not be scratched or rubbed in any way. You may dust the surface by using a soft cloth or tissue.

Q: What should I do if the face is damaged or dirtied by accident?

A: We can replace the face of your pendant free of charge, as long as the sterling silver part is still in good shape. All you need to do is contact the artist directly to make arrangements for your repair needs. Shipping and handling fees may apply accordingly.
