Sean P. Diddy Combs, back then known as Puff Daddy and Christopher Wallace otherwise known as The Notorious BIG were pioneers of hip hop jewelry. On March 9th, 1997 Biggie’s life was tragically cut short. His music has left a lasting impression.

So even 15 years after his passing, his music lives on. Both in life and death Biggle has given Diddy alot of success. Becuase of this, here at TraxNYC we wanted to commemorate the special relationship the two of them shared so we created this Notorious BIG pendant for Diddy, himself.
 
This very iconic image of Biggie, photographed by Barron Claiborne was going to be the platform of this custom jewelry project. When it came to replicating this photo, we were in for the long haul. Remaking the crown? Not a problem. The face? Now that was a completely different story.

The details on a human face are some of the most difficult things to recreate. So the most grandiose challenge for us at the time was capturing the emotion this photo has.
 
As mentioned before, creating the face of a pendant is the greatest challenge of any custom jewelry project. The production process has an evolutionary element to it. As you can see from the images to the left, we begin with one basic image, then we figure out what modifications need to be made, then we repeat the process. It is similar to making a model out of clay.

Replicating muscle tone and other visual aspects of the human face is a time consuming process. In ideal situations, once the model is made, whatever changes or touch-ups that need to be made are done by hand. But due to time constraints and a March 16th deadline we were not able to be as conclusive as we would have been if the time was avaible to us.

Regardsless, this custom diamond pendant is remakrable.
 
 
This custom diamond hip hop pendant of Christopher Wallace, The Notorious BIG was completed on schedule and turned out to be an amazing success. It was gifted to Diddy by TraxNYC and he loved it. If given the extra time, we feel like we could have done an even better job but a pendant as elaborate as this one can take up to 8 months to perfect.
