These handmade sea turtle cuff links were constructed by sawing two .75 inch squares by hand from an 18 gauge copper sheet using a jewelry saw and filing the edges smooth with a hand file. Large sea turtle metal stamps were imprinted on the copper squares before doming the flat metal on a steel dapping block to produce curvature which adds dimension to the design while light reflecting off the curved surface creates intense highlights. The copper squares were soldered to pure bronze links with an acetylene torch to form a bond that will outlast traditional glued cuff links. To bring out the rich red and brown hues which make copper so appealing, these sea turtle cuff links were finished with a wire brush for rustic appearance.
The cuff links measure .75 inch (18mm) in length and the bronze links are a standard size. You can personalize these cuff links
