Preserving Her Grandma's Shorthand

with Bespoke Handwriting Jewelry


She wanted to carry her grandmother’s message with her. Her grandmother had a long career as a secretary, and had written a sweet sentiment to her granddaughter in shorthand. She asked if we could make a small pendant in 14k white gold with her grandmother’s message. We’d never used shorthand in our handwriting jewelry before, and were excited for the opportunity.

So we created this personalized handwriting necklace for her. Written in shorthand from her grandmother’s secretarial days, “I love you very much” is preserved in 14k white gold. We love that the message is only know to the wearer… and whomever might still know a little shorthand.

Below is the original handwriting. Above, the message turned into a cherished family heirloom.
