I'm considering making a tutorial on youtube and maybe also try to get it into psd.tutsplus.com to show how to create a seal like this from scratch.
psd.tutsplus.com is a great place for learning to work with photoshop. I recommend it to everyone.
Anyone who takes a $54 necklace (that is mass-produced and will be hanging around the necks of thousands of people) to be used as a base for a logo/design that will represent a highly sophisticated interior design company (that embodies quality, good taste and prestige) should consider himself a disrespectful crook and a fool and should be ashamed.
I chose to use spot colors and decided not to make a 3d. Why this decición is that when making a 3d and use a color gradient, you lose cogency. Note that I sent the logo to be color and simpler plane is more enduring in the memory of one.

Dear contest holder. Freelancer.com is a place where great designers find themselves sharing the same contest platform with scammers. Some people here will pull out a professional looking wax seal from the Internet, add a layer of fonts to it and call it a day.
Please be advised too google images of wax seals for the purpose of fraud detection.
