Hybrid Handmade Weddings

Fresh off the workbench this week - this set of cuff links (for him) and necklace (for her) using leaves from the flowers used in the wedding celebrations.

I've been developing a technique to make recycled silver sheet.  I've used this for the cuff links.  It has a particularly rugged, robust feel to it which was perfect for this commission.

Good memories from a great day, preserved and pressed and ready to be taken by the couple into their future.
