mitsuro cloisonne cufflinks
I had received a pair of cufflinks with a very intricate floral design done on a mother-of-pearl background. However, so much of the effort went into the object d'art itself, the "packaging" was an afterthought. The setting was a plain, thin sterling silver alloy that would turn black if you so much as looked at it. I decided to send them to Russ with the directive, "Surprise me." and he did. Using a combination of gold and silver, along with some beautiful mitsuro traceries, I now have a pair of links whose setting is as delicate and amazing as the cloisonne detailing itself.
Bravisimo again, Russ
