Chain of office for the Senate of Canada

This is something i wanted to share more now that i have some time to do it, to start this new blog i thought that one of the most important piece I've made in my career should be chosen for this occasion '' the chain of office'' for the Senate of Canada. It took 3 months to get all the designs accepted and 6 months after that to complete the project. The weight in silver was over 400 grams and the silver Itself is a non-tarnishing type of .925 sterling silver a part from a 22 kt. gold sovereign coin that was set in the background of the front medal. Everything that's on these front and back main pieces as been thought of by a team of heraldic experts, i could probably wright two pages on this but I'll keep it short and sweet. Later on in November 2014 they inaugurated the chain in England in presence of Queen Elizabeth II.
