Solid Bronze Cuff links Cufflinks with Custom Rooster Crest
EXAMPLE OF CUSTOM ORDER SO YOU CAN SEE WHAT IS POSSIBLE
Sometimes you need something really out of the ordinary. So far out that the only way to get there is to have it custom made.
These cufflinks were a commission for a client who wanted a design that had special meaning for his family made into cufflinks. He sent me a sketch, and I created artwork to make a custom stamp which I used to create a bas-relief design to metal clay. Then the cufflink blanks were dried, sanded and shaped, fired at VERY high temp in a kiln (1700F +) where the metal particles in the clay fused into solid bronze.
Solid bronze cufflink backs were then soldered (not glued) to the cufflink face. They were then tumbler and hand polished, oxidized to bring out the design and texture of the bronze, then hand polished again and protected with a tarnish retarding coat of Renaissance wax.
The stamp making process requires black and white line art in order to create the stamp. Contact me with your sketch or ideas, and I will be glad to take a look at your proposed design and see how we can make it work.
Since these are completely custom made, please allow three weeks for production.
Making the stamp would be from 45 to 150 dollars, depending on complexity. This is a one time charge, though as the stamp can be reused to make multiple pairs of cufflinks, pendants, or charms, . The cufflinks would run 80.00 a pair in solid bronze, and 195.00 a pair in sterling silver.
F YOU WOULD LIKE INITIALS OR A DATE ON THE BACK, THAT IS AVAILABLE AS AN OPTION ON THE BRONZE CUFFLINKS (20.00 ADDITIONAL). SEE LAST PHOTO.
In addition, I can use your mold to make you a custom key chain, in either silver (175.00) or bronze (65.00): https://www.custommade.com/solid-bronze-monogrammed-logo-or-custom-keychain-f/by/jennybuttons/
