This is a Masonic Reliquary that I made during the first quarter of my Metals class at Central Washington University. It was the culmination of the quarter.
It is a pretty good looking piece and is filled with symbolism. Some of the symbols are meaningful to any Mason and some - just to me. The two coins were struck with a die to leave a square and compass on them, and they were given to me, so I would never be penniless.
Here are some larger format pictures (unfortunately I didn't really get any of the construction).
The text, on the coins and on both sides of the base, has to do with trust in god.
I think it is pretty good, considering I had never held a torch 9 weeks earlier
and had a bunch of other projects that quarter. And yes, I did get an "A" for the project and out of the class that quarter.
