Folksy :: Buy "Handmade pewter cufflinks,scallop design"

Posted By Owl and Cat on Jewellery

These cufflinks have been individually hand-made in shiny modern pewter. Due to the method of making, the links will vary slightly. Each link measures 2cm,0.75ins,across. Gift boxed.

Each pewter piece has been individually made by hand (not cast) to my own design. A pattern is raised on a sheet of pewter, then the raised area is filled. The item is then mounted on a rigid base,chemically patinated, then polished.Modern pewter is lead-free and after patination has a shiny,almost reflective,finish.It does not blacken like silver and can be brightened, if necessary,with a smear of metal polish and a buffing with a soft cloth.
