Flagship, PA - With the popularity of NFTs soaring in the past year and use cases developing exponentially, creators are consistently entering with space vigor, showcasing an unprecedented number of unique works. Some of these creators in fashion and collectibles have included well-recognized brands such as Louis Vuitton, Burberry, and even Topps collectible trading cards.
Wendell August Forge has joined the list of unique designers and is launching their collection this Thursday July 14, 2022. The NFT is designed in the same thoughtful way Wendell August hand-hammers their metal gifts. Lifetime clients and collectible fans want a gift with handcrafted “enduring beauty that is meaningful and timeless,” says Will Knecht, Wendell August’s Chairman.
The NFT displays the same hammered patterns characteristic of the metal crafting by the expert artisans at Wendell August Forge. Every individually designed NFT is a limited edition and bears its own unique number in the 3D rendering. There will be a limited number of 5,000 unique, individual NFTs, each with its own rarity traits. In addition to the timeless value, each NFT will be accompanied by a physical commemorative coin along with membership benefits, special perks, and experiences announced throughout the year.
The coin is handcrafted by the expert artisans and displays a similar scene to the one in the NFTs. “At Wendell August Forge, our expert artisans hand-etch original designs into a die. Each piece is then hand-wrought by skilled craftsmen, using an eight-step process with its roots in ancient metalworking techniques.”
“It’s such an amazing opportunity to bridge the physical and digital worlds!”
Wendell August combined their ancient craftsmanship techniques and details with an international team of NFT design creators to help create the bridge between old-world physical craftsmanship and online digital artistry.
Traditional Wendell August customers can find resources to help them easily buy this exciting new gift/collectible line. Minting will be available via credit card or ETH. The NFTs' specific rarity traits will be revealed upon minting to add an extra level of excitement.
“We’ve seen expressed interest in this project from grandparents and parents who want to give their kids and grandkids the “cool gift” this year. At the same time, we’re hearing from NFT enthusiasts who are excited to get involved in this initial launch,” Knecht said.
