Sterling Silver Cufflinks with Custom Heraldic Crest
EXAMPLE OF A CUSTOM ORDER SO YOU CAN SEE WHAT IS POSSIBLE
Sometimes you need something really out of the ordinary. So far out of the ordinary that the only way to get there is to have it custom made.
I love these dolphins. They are completely inaccurate and Medievally fanciful, and they are FABULOUSLY wrong in every way anatomical way possible, but they are still perfect!
These cufflinks were a commission for a client who wanted his family crest executed as a cufflink design. I took the artwork and I made a custom stamp, which I then used to create a bas-relief design in silver metal clay. Then the cufflink blanks were dried, sanded and shaped, fired at very high temp in a kiln (where the metal particles in the clay fused into solid sterling silver)
Solid sterling cufflink backs were soldered (not glued) to the cufflink face. The set was then tumbler and hand polished, oxidized to bring out the design and texture of the silver, then hand polished again to create a precious future heirloom.
This process requires black and white line art in order to create the stamp. Because of the nature of metal clay and the stamp making process, I won't be able to reproduce a highly detailed motif with hair thin lines all through it, or one with lots of shades of grey ...but there is a whole lot I CAN do. Contact me and I will be glad to take a look at your proposed design and see how we can make it work.
These are wonderful for men or women of any age. They would also make a terrific groomsman's gift for your wedding party. Or a special gift to the lucky groom himself. Or celebrate your 25th anniversary in spectacular style.
Since these are completely custom made, please allow two week for production.
Making the stamp would be from 45 to 125 dollars, depending on the complexity of getting a good image for stamp making. This one was towards the high end, with a great deal of work ended to adapt the design. The cufflinks would then run 195.00 a pair. Multiple pairs can be made from the same stamp.
Also available solid bronze,should you prefer, at 80.00 a pair. In addition, I can make you a lovely key fob in solid bronze (65.00) or sterling silver (175.00)from the same stamp! https://www.custommade.com/solid-bronze-monogrammed-keychain-fob-with-solid-b/by/jennybuttons/
