At this time of year, I get a lot of custom orders for my map cuff links. I love the mix of copper, sterling and stainless steel. But more importantly, I am honored to be a small part of a very special gift.
I've done cuff links to commemorate a honeymoon road trip from Seattle to San Fransisco, and an anniversary gift where he first proposed in Paris, to where they now reside in Switzerland. I'm working on a pair for a grandfather with the cities where his grandchildren live, and tomorrow I'll start a pair for the wine country in France.
I have vintage atlases scattered around my studio, and sometimes just wonder, where I'll be going next.
