These little specimen cuff links are a custom, reserve order for you. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE CUFF LINKS IN THE PHOTOS ARE SOLD, and the photos are used as reference to show you how your cuff links will be built.

PRODUCTION TIME: As this is a custom order, please check my shop announcement (under the 'Specimental' banner) for my current lead time: http://www.etsy.com/shop/elseetee2

I build these cuff links of sterling and fine silver, which I hand-hammer and then buff to a rich glow. Every surface of the cuff link is hammered, from the fine silver bezels, to the sterling silver bar and disc.

Each link is crowned in a gorgeous geode specimen. These little specimens are about 1/2- 5/8" across. They are a matched set, as they were once a single geode, which was bisected. A geode is a naturally occurring rock formation, which develops a pocket of crystals inside. Like all crystal formations, these geodes will take on different colour intensity depending upon the light. The first photo shows a pair of red and black geodes shot under low, natural light.

The geode halves are bezel set into the cuff links. I ensure a good, durable join by using jeweler's epoxy in the bezel. To create added protection for the edges of these little specimens, I burnish the top edge of the fine silver bezel over the rims of the geode. Of course, like all specimen jewelery, these need to be worn with a bit of added care- they will not enjoy being smashed against a hard surface.

The geodes are held snug to your cuff using a curved, 1/2" bar and disc. The disc is domed, and is about 3/8" across.

The geodes halves are of slightly different shapes, as they are a naturally grown, organic object. However, each pair is a very good match to one another.

Shipping- please read: These ship with Air Mail Small Package, unless otherwise requested by you. This method has no tracking number, and a 4-10 business day (estimated, not guaranteed) travel time from Canada to the USA. If you would like a tracking number, or a faster shipping method (anywhere from three business days to overnight), please get in touch for an estimate prior to purchasing.
