While I was at AVCon an attendee saw my Portal Earrings and Brooches and asked if I could make some cufflinks. Since cufflink designs need to be a lot smaller I opted to create them out of wood instead of trying to fit the tiny cut acrylic pieces together.
They’re a little heavy – the beads are glass – but I’m pleased with the outcome.
Unfortunately the people I bought the beads from didn’t have two shades of blue in the right bead sizes. I made do with clear for the light blue – and put pieces of blue paper between the glass so that from certain angles it refracts the colour. You can see hints of it in the above photo but it’s definitely most effective viewed longways.
I am thinking of making a necklace to match. My housemate suggested putting the blocks on tiers so they look like they’re falling. To go with that I had an idea of making a matching t-shirt design, so it would look like the blocks were falling into the t-shirt… hmmm, ideas!
