A Glagolitic request

Croatian Glagolitic Alphabet

Last week we had a customer in our store asking if we could engrave a bracelet with his name in the old Croatian Glagolitic alphabet.  We do not currently have an engraving or etching tool but sketched a few ideas and came up with something a whole lot more interesting than our customer had in mind;

We created a silver framework for the name to sit in and then individually created each of the letters.

All letters created and soldered into place.

The finished product.

We had several visits from this customer while the bracelet was being made which was fun and he was delighted with the finished work.

Can anyone work out the name?

Clues: 7 letters, starts with A and was made for a male customer.

  1. Now I know the answer to the question you posed on Facebook 🙂

    The alphabet reminds me of the inscriptions in stonework in the Armenian colony in Jerusalem, that I have seen.

      Hi David – nice that you noticed 😉
      I wonder how they came from the fully complicated letters to our somewhat basic alphabet that we use now? and am so glad I didn’t have to learn to write glagolitic letters!

    looks really quite interesting and very unique
    the silver outline for the letters remind me of the Egyptian cartouche

      Thanks Johny – we are now making one honouring the family name Babic for a US based cutomer – the soft & hard C’s are providing a good challenge for Seba fingers!
