Scar Burial Plaque Viking Cufflinks with Sapphire Blue Inlay


Based on a great artifact we encountered in the Orkney Islands this image is of a Viking dragon. We know you may have been having difficulty finding unconventional cufflinks and we wanted to make sure we paid attention to everything: the image, the shape and the colour. We have made a small series of different images, shapes and colours for you to choose from.

The cufflinks are made from brass and are soldered together and coated on the back to finish off their appearance. They are about 2 x 2.6 cm or 13/16 x 1 inch. They have been antiqued to give them a lost treasure appearance.

Each metal component, made in our Alberta, Canada, studio, is the product of a rigorous 35-45 step process (around 35 per earring or pendant and between 40 and 45 per ring and cuff link). Starting with plain sheets of metal we design and create our components one at a time. Some of the key steps include preparing the metal and design work, etching the imagery and cutting custom shapes. Shaping is done with a manual hydraulic press (2000 lbs plus per a component) to create stronger, more durable and professionally shaped components. Each piece is finished with a meticulous hand applied coloring process wherein each color is individually applied and often on different days to allow for the lengthy drying process (up to 72 hours). The majority of the other steps revolve around an absurd amount of sanding and cleaning, as well as, adding the finishing touches such as ear hooks, jump rings, soldering etc. Because of this no two items are identical and they have variations between each item.

*Note because we are selling online at two different places and we are doing shows it may take the full 10 days for us to ship the item if we have to remake it. Because of this your item will look either almost the same or very close to what you see in the picture (more than likely you will receive the item in the picture above). If you need the item sooner please message us to see if the item is in stock.
