Today’s design is one I did for one of my most faithful and supportive clients. Glenda is a colleague and friend at the Milwaukee Symphony. She was also one of the first people to commission me to make something for her when I was just starting out in business. She has been a faithful repeat customer, so when she approached me with a cuff link project for her husband’s birthday, I was more than happy to be involved.
Glenda and Gary (both terrific musicians) own and run Greenhoe Trombones, a premier manufacturer of trombones and trombone components. To celebrate Gary’s birthday, Glenda wanted me to design 14K yellow gold cuff links around their company’s logo. The elegant double-G logo is perfect just as it is, so I came up with the following rough CAD rendering to convey my idea for the cuff link tops:
Upon discussion of the type of cuff link backs, overall sizing and receiving Glenda’s approval, the final CAD was reached:
The finished cuff links came out beautifully! And, for my reader’s benefit, I tried to photograph them in exactly the same position as the CAD rendering:
The cuff links are high polished with a recessed bead-blasted finish…
golden treasures for a golden couple!
