GS: Raven Cufflinks

Groomsman gifts are tough. Do you get them pens? Flasks with their names engraved on them? iPods? Well, my favorite are custom cufflinks. Something that is special to either the groom or the groomsmen.

This raven design is the logo on a sail boat owned by the Best Man...





Now, the pattern automatically lends itself to a cutout (with some slight modification.) But simply a cutout would create a weak structure, so I backed it with another sheet of silver. At this point, it started to develop the look of an antique coin... somewhat militant looking. So I decided to run with this and I not only oxidized the cutout, but the entire piece and then selectively removed the oxidization to give it an antiqued finish.

And this is the final product...

Cufflinks make an excellent gift for groomsmen. Try to pick cufflinks that the groomsmen can wear at another date, not only suitable for weddings.

I find it really annoying when companies like 'Cufflinks' attempt to hock their wares on my blog. Your product is nothing like mine... please go sell your stuff somewhere else.

These funky and yet very stylish cufflinks are definitely where the future of fashion is going. It's where utilitarian meets fashionista which everyone will love. It's what everyone hopes what their fashionable clothes would be comfortable, stylish and has a double purpose- definitely a bang for the buck!novelty cufflinks
