I probably shouldn't have. I can't take a 1/2 decent pic of these to save my life, so I shall just wing it so you get the idea.
|What an attractive couple!|
Little boy rarely draws pictures of people...usually detailed scenes...so when I saw these I thought they would be perfect for some cufflinks for The Man for Father's Day. No, I don't need to worry about spoiling the surprise. He doesn't read my blog unless I hold it up in front of his face:)
|A little help from Photoshop and Illustrator|
These will just serve as a prototype at the moment, but The Man will be pleased. The solder joints are abysmal, and I'm still figuring out style, construction, etc.
|Is the tie not to die for?|
The backs are argentium sterling, while the tops with prints are regular, old sterling. The centre had to be hollowed out simply to conserve silver, as I wanted a nice, heavy link. This one may be too chunky for my taste. Getting those details ironed out will keep me quite happy for a while, but I just don't have time right now.
