Mokume Gane Peekaboo Cufflinks

Not available for purchase.

PRODUCT STORY
I am an up and coming designer who has been crafting various designs for about 2 years. The first product I had that seemed to hit a special spot in the market were my peekaboo cufflinks.

I first started with a simple sterling silver and copper combination, but I have recently expanded into the mokume gane look. I think that a lot of the cufflinks on the market don't fit the every day needs of fashionable men; that's why I decided to design a simple yet sleek cufflink.

I have found that men love these cufflinks for their every day wear. They are not too flashy, and they draw the appropriate amount of attention for a work environment.

I really like those cuff links although I could never pay that much money because I am on a fixed income but to me they are beautiful.

I think these are pretty neat looking but I hate the price. I would personally wear them but the only guy I know who wears cufflinks I don't think would wear them. I think he would consider these a bit to feminine looking.

These are beautifully done. The price is great too, there is a lot of labor involved and it has been executed perfectly.

Thanks for the feedback everyone! I just wanted to clarify something that I did not make clear in the description. These cuff link tops are comprised of three separate components: mokume gane on top, copper in the middle, and silver in the back. I solder all three of these items in a sandwich and then carefully file so I expose the copper center for more contrast. They are then given a special patina to darken the copper to a rich brown and leave the silver neutral.

These are SO BALLER!!! I have other pairs of Megans cufflinks and they get more attention than any other item I wear. My style is very classic and these cufflinks further establish my style.

Love these cufflinks! The mokume is such a unique look and the addition of the copper middle really compliments it. The price is great considering the cost of the materials used. I would buy them.

Dear Nancy,Who wears cufflinks? Well, let me help you out here: Men who wear button down shirts with a sense of style wear cufflinks. Just because they are not your style does not mean that they're not in style... To the designer- These are GORGEOUS! Can't wait to see additional designs!

Have a similar set and they are a real favorite. Craftsmanship is outstanding and are a conversation starter because of blending of colors in the stone and silver.

The price is a bit out of my range, but I would consider these for a gift for a special guy for sure. Very unique.
