I will be glad to contribute. I'm so glad we can talk about this out in the open instead of through PM's, like we did on the AI board.

I know and I didn't even know about the last gift so I wasn't able to contribute. So this does make it easier!

Posted by Flicker in another thread...

Quote :
I don't know if everyone knows about this and I somehow missed it -- I do kind of fall into a Hobbit hole sometimes and miss a lo t of good stuff.

But, I saw this tweet from Matt:

Quote:
@_Pennyroyal it's great man. Thanks again for making those

And had to see what he was talking about. Pennyroyal turned out to be a jeweler who made custom designed pendants for the top 8 this year. They are all posted on his website here:

http://www.pennyroyalsilver.com/

Click on Custom to see them.

His website says that he sat down with each idol and created their designs based on his conversation with them.


I know we already picked a pendant for his gift but how about this one? It's a little expensive but if enough of us chip in we could do it. It costs $125. So if 10-15 of us chip in it shouldn't cost us much. I also emailed this designer and asked him if he could create a pendant with a piano on it. I asked him how much it would cost and if he could have it done by the end of August. I'll keep you guys informed.

So how about this necklas for the first show and then the cross Necklas for the first Michigan show?

Wow he sure made a fast response. This is what he said about the pendant.

Quote:


Quote :
Hi Jenna-
Thanks for your message. I'd love to make another pendant for Matt. The cost depends on the size and details of the pendant. Do you have a sketch of the general idea or can you explain it? It usually takes 10-14 days to get a design finished and in the mail. I'll have no problem getting it to you by the end of August.

So any suggestions guys? LOL I don't know the first thing about jewerly design. Maybe we should ask Bella?

I sent him a reply asking for his help. Oh and thanks for the contribution Flicker I received it! I also asked him if he had any of the musical note pendants left.

Well he just replied again...

Quote:
Hey-
I can draw up some rough ideas that I think would fit his style if you'd like. Average price for a custom design is $250-$350. Considering the ideas that I already have swimming around in my head... I'd expect it will be right at $300 (+tax if you're in CA). I'll pay shipping for you. Smile I definitely have some of the "music note" designs in inventory. I can send you a paypal invoice via email. Do you want it on sterling chain or black cord? The price is the same.

I am so excited about this LOL! We won't even get to see his response but it feels like X-mas for me! I love giving surprises! santa Yay I have been wanting to use this little guy for a while. LOL I hope Matt doesn't read here or it won't be surprise considering we have pictures all over. But I'm sure he doesn't!

So do we want a chain or a black cord? I think a chain? Oh I guess first I should make sure everyone wants to get him the musical note pendant?

He drew up a design and explained it so I thought I'd share so we could discuss it...



Quote:



I drew up an idea for you (see attached). It would be a small 3D keyboard section hung from the corner so it's really distinct looking. The keyboard itself would be 3D... meaning that the black keys would be higher than the white keys, like on a real keyboard. They will be blackened, but the coloring will be irregular and rubbed off on some parts to look like it's aged. The rough line going down the top right side would be a broken edge similar to the edge on the piece Matt already has (see attached). He really likes the "beat up and aged" look. I will hand carve the entire thing so it has a nice aged look. some scratches... some of the keys will lay a little crooked, maybe some chips out of the end of a few... like the keyboard on a really old piano that looks like it's been through some stuff.
I also think it would be really cool to put some words on the back... sort of a "message from the fans" that he can carry with him as a reminder of how his talent touches people's lives. Something very simple... 5-7 words at the most. I'll let you come up with something meaningful. I won't charge you extra for the words on the back. I think this will be what really makes it meaningful.

Let me know what you think.





I like it and he really seems to get Matt's style but I really loved the guitar pendant more. Do we want to go with just keys or more like the guitar pendant and have an actual piano? I love the idea of engraving the back of it. What do you think we should say?

The guitar pendant I made would be tough to translate to a piano... since a piano is so much larger and detailed than a guitar. If I try to cram too much piano onto too little pendant, it could look really weird. But I can play around with the idea if you want to see something.

Is the music note pendant for Matt too?




HMM the quote button won't work. So I think it will be nice to get a few more ideas but the first one sounds pretty cool too. Now keep in mind this one will be more expensive but we won't need the money together until August. We will need to give him some time to create it too. I'm really excited about this!

I really like the sketch he drew up. I like the simplicity of it and I think putting the writing on the back would make it more personal.

I don't know LOL good question. I think we should get the musical note pendant for the first show because he has a limited amount of them and then for the first Michigan show get the cross. The second Michigan show maybe we can get him the T-shirt and hat. And the last show I definitely want to get him the piano necklas but that one is more expensive so we will need more people to contribute than we have got now.

Shall we vote on it? Just post in this thread which pendant you want to go with even if for some reason you can't contribute because the gift will be from everyone on this board. Oh an so far I have only received one letter. Again even if you are unable to contribute send in a letter!

My vote the musical note. Very Happy

Here is another email reply from the designer. I asked him to design a couple of more pendants so I will post them when he send them to me.

What do you guys think about his concerns that Kris has a similar necklas? Do you think it matters?



Quote :



Thats cool. As far as the music note goes... I'm sure he would love it but you should know that the piece I made for Kris Allen is a customized version of that design (see attached). So you might want to choose a different one so it's totally unique for him. Just a thought.
I think you (and matt) be happiest with just a short portion of a keyboard showing like the draft I sent. I can draw up another idea or two if you'd like. Let me know what you think.

I think the designer raises a good point. If Kris has a nicer version of the musical note piece, and of course Matt has seen it, then I think something different might be a better idea. Can he suggest something else?

I love the cross for MI show and piano key piece for last show. I really like the designer's description of the piano keys in the earlier post. I trust that he knows Matt's taste.

But I am easy. Whatever everyone thinks is best. Smile

I'm thinking 3 pendants may be too many. I really like the idea of the customized piano pendant for the final show. In the interest of time, and if you want to go with 2 pendants, I would go with the cross for the first show. Tshirt/hat for the Palace and ? something disney or a different piece of jewellery (bracelet/ring) for GR. Of course a lot of this depends on how much money you collect. Also, I will have the photo book done if you want to use that as a gift.

Yeah I was thinking that 3 pendants maybe too many but I definitely want to get the piano one. Well so far 5 people including myself have donated. We have a total of $130 for this gift. I will feel bad if I got this guy all hype about making another necklas for Matt and we can't get enough money together by August. If only the five of us can donate money we are looking at another $60 a piece for the piano pendant.



I also like these pieces from this designer...




This one is $115

and



This one is $95. So we have enough right now for either of the cross pendants or the through the keyhole pendant. I just wonder if the 2 pendants from the designer I have been talking too is better quality jewerly?
Well I will give everyone until Tuesday to send money in but then I will have to order it. So which one should we go with? I will keep whatever money we have left over for the next gift.

I'm confident you will raise money by August. I think you will get more fans as the tour continues. Since the plan is to get the piano pendant for the last show, I would go with the other cross from Tribal Hollywood so they don't look too similar, plus its less expensive and will leave more money for the piano one.

Actually we will probably use the money left over for the shirt and hat for the first Michigan show. Then we need to think of one more gift for the second Michigan show?

Well I really like Tim's designs but I think we should take a vote.

I like the through the keyhole pendant so that's my vote.

sgr votes for the cross pendant through the Hollywood site.

How about the rest of us? Even if you can't contribute tell us what you think?

Since I'm clearly incapable of doing this. can you maybe put up the picture of each of the pendants with the vote. Maybe in a new thread? I would if I could but this picture posting has clearly alluded me.

I like this plan. I think sgr91's book would be a beautiful and meaningful gift for the GR show. Then we could add a disney gift along with either the tshirt/hat or the book for either MI show.

I also think we should make a tour commemorable. With photos and video. Maybe something like a scrapbook or like the tour books they sell at concerts. We could make this for the last show and give sgr's book at the Grand Rapid show.

Kind of lost track here (don't go away from the computer for 48 hours lol) Are we getting him the pedant (Cross from Tribal Hollywood), a t-shirt and a cap/hat?
And are we looking at... appr. 150 dollars? And we are 9 that have voted - is it fair to think that we are only 9 to contribute? And when will he get this? Sorry - but I just completely lost track of who, when, where, how much (not why though Laughing )

No actually only 5 of us have contributed so far and we have $130 right now. So we have enough for the first gift but that's all right now. I will continue taking contributions all the way up until we get the last gift. Whatever we don't spend right now I will save for the next gift.

Cecilie we want to get him a special gift for the last show which costs $300's. We are looking into having a special piano pendant designed specifically for him by a designer that has created a design for him in the past. For me this is the gift I am most excited about!

The first Michigan show I believe we will be sending Sgr's book, the Hat and T-shirt. The second Michigan show I don't think we have planned yet. And of course the last show will hopefully be the piano pendant if we can raise enough money.

I hope that answers your questions?
