I have a sterling silver traditional charm bracelet that I am giving a bit of an overhaul. Many people have gifted me charms over the years and unfortunately I have ended up with two practically identical charms. One given to me as one of the original charms on the bracelet by my aunt, and one sent later by my great aunt.

Since the great aunt who gave me the second one was very dear to me and has now passed away,  I don't want to simply replace the charm,  but would like to have it melted down and remade into a different shape to remember her by.
I've asked jewellers and etsy sellers and have looked into silversmiths, but I can't seem to find anyone who would be able to do this. Does anyone on this wide and wonderful community have any idea who I could contact?

I do realize it's an odd request and an overcomplication, but it's important to me.

I'm sorry.  I have no ideas for you.  Charm making is so specific, because it requires molds for the charms.

Yeah, from my conversations with charm- sellers on etsy it seems that most designers send their things to be cast by an outside company, and therefore cannot do the smelting.

Thanks for the response though, I figure it can't hurt to ask!
