    Yes, based on the original family coat of arms (Wales) with a few color changes. I also replaced the original rondials (circles) with the three gold triquettas. The triquetta is my makers mark that appears on everything I make.

    looks good.

    I want to make a shield with the coat of arms of my family, it is just a pity that having one of the most ancient surnames of spain, the coat is very simple, it is in silver field, 6 sable ribs placed in three rows.

    It may be simple but the purpose of a coat of arms, originally, was to distinguish who was who on the battle field. Simple devices were much easier to recognize in the heat of battle than complex devices with small differences. Does your family have a badge? Mine was a pelican, natural preying on a green wyvern. Perhaps you could work that into your shield?
