I had the wonderful pleasure of working on a very special commission recently. An old friend contacted me to work on some cufflinks for her wedding.
I haven't made cufflinks in a while and I didn't have all of the tools I needed to do the job but I said yes straight away! The brief was quite specific which was great as time was short!
I have known the bride for a long time so the pressure was on to make the pieces perfect!

The personalised messages was the hardest part of the brief, both in the actual stamping of them and trying to fit in the messages!

|I like to use my work bench as a sketchbook!|
|Cufflinks for the groomsmen all lined up and ready to go!|

Despite the Scottish weather the wedding was a big success and I wish the happy couple all the best for their future together as man and wife. Congratulations to Mark and Jenny Kirby!
