Custom Work from Billy and Charlie

Of Special Interest to Re-enactors and Tourneying Societies

Pewter badges were often distributed as a sign of favor by the nobility to persons they were taking under their protection. (Of course at the level of pewter badges, the protection might be rather remote; courtiers close to a lord were rewarded for their allegiance with brooches similar in form, but made of gold or silver.) Such badges may be usefully adopted by societies and groups of re-enactors as marks of membership or allegiance. One of the badges below is distributed as a sign of regard by a tourneying company to notable incomers to their tournaments.

We invite you to contact us if you are interested in having us produce brooches or pendants to your specifications. Because the production of the mold represents a major part of the time and expense of creating these pewter pieces, we generally require either that you buy the mold outright or that your original purchase of castings from the mold cover the cost of production.

Here are some examples of custom work we have done for re-enactment groups, tourneying societies, and individuals; no prices are given as none of these items are for sale except to the person or group that commissioned them.
