Description

Reduced from $355 to $250

You'll be the talking point at work or dinner with these sterling silver cufflinks on your cuff. They're a one off and will never be repeated. They'll make a very special Valentines day gift for your partner. They simply slip through the button holes to hold your cuff in place, no catches necessary.

The top and base of each cufflink (the textured form) was made using the ancient technique of Cuttlefish casting, then they were joined through fabrication and soldering techniques.

If you would like to visit my studio to try them on and to see other pieces available for sale please contact me to arrange a time. My studio is always open by appointment.

The process of Cuttlefish casting involves taking a cuttlefish bone found on the beach, I cut it in two and carve out a basic design, and a funnel. I then rejoin the two halves and melt sterling silver until it is molten and pour it quickly into the mould. The mould crackles and cooks. After cooling I open the mould to see if I have made a successful cast. I then take the crude form back to my bench where I spend many hours filing and emerying before polishing and finally presenting it for sale. Many hidden hours goes into my cuttlefish cast jewellery.

More details about the process including videos can be found on my website http://katrinanewman.com

Please let me know if you require any further information or additional photos before making your decision.

I use Australia Post International Standard or Express for all International sales. If you are making an international purchase please contact me before to confirm International postage costs, or if you would prefer to make your own arrangements.

    These earrings are even better in real life. I love not only the shape of the earrings, but also the beautiful pattern and marbling effects on the glass. Great purchase overall.

    I purchased these for one of my daughters and can't wait to see what she thinks of them. They are to match a dress and will really complete the outfit. The photo does not do them justice. In real life they are even more lovely than in the photos. Another quality item from KatrinaNewman. The third pair of earrings I have bought from her. All absolutely lovely.
