imagine peace imagine snow
A Royal Canadian Snowball,  a solid piece of lead crystal carved by my hand using diamonds and water. A testament to the order that may be found in chaos, a space to hold another snowflake in perpetuity or until ones pencil grows too fat.

This solid sterling pillbox was chased with snowflake motif by my hand using diamonds and water. It is simultaneously an objet ’art and useful all purpose container, fits neatly in that little pocket in the front of your blue jeans. Good for carrying pills of all sorts medicinal, recreational, and vitaminical.

Spring is quickly approaching and with it, the return of the snowbirds. You may be one, you may know some. Canadians with means sensible enough to spend their time in warmer climes, come fall and winter they migrate to Arizona, Texas, Mexico, and Thailand, anywhere equatorial, somewhere warm and dry. But as springtime approaches the lure of friends, summer drinks and rustic weekends, call the snowbirds home. To celebrate we at the Royal Canadian Snowflake Factory have produced the snowbird patch; embroidered and made to iron on to your favorite camping clothes, glad rags, and ceremonial vestments. The snowbird patch lets everyone know that you may exercise the option to enjoy the sun, and have fun. Snowbird Patches are included free with sponsorship in the Royal Canadian Snowflake Collection.

The Royal Canadian Snowflake Collection is created by Robert Chaplin and produced exclusively through sponsorship. Like discovering a new star, sponsors get to name their snowflake. Sponsors receive the first snowflake cast in sterling silver, to keep or give to a friend. This first snowflake is a unique piece of sterling silver jewelry, an original work of art. Signed and delivered as a pendant or lapel pin, it’s name is engraved on the back — a snowflake everlasting.

Sponsors receive the first snowflake cast, to keep or give to a friend. The pictorial collection is updated periodically and each snowflake pictured includes the name of the sponsor and the name of their snowflake. We are all Royal Canadians and sponsoring a snowflake is easy, Simply click add to cart, and send an email stating your name and the name of your snowflake. Your sterling silver snowflake will be delivered in time for Christmas.

The Cost of Sponsorship is $400.00
