This afternoon, with everyone busy doing their own thing, I decided to sneak away into my workshop for a little enamelling. This is something that I love to do but it's only practical when you have a few hours to spare.

I'm working at the moment on a new range of cufflinks which are going to need little enamel roundels set into them like stones. Some will be a single colour, others a simple cloisonne design.

My favourite from today was an born from an idea I had for valentines day. It seems to me that women are more demonstrative of declaring their undying love for all to see than men. So, what I was aiming at was something a bit lovey which would not embarrass the poor bloke at work when forced to wear the cufflinks in public.
Ladies and gentlemen I give you 'Hidden Heart' which is an interesting design when viewed alone, but when viewed together, the two halves come together to form a heart.
Discreet, romantic, interesting.


  1. That is such a great idea Cheeky! I totally get the "declaring undying love" stuff... :)

    And it's so hard to find gifts for men or creat for them- so this is a great idea!

  2. Thanks Delightful, it's great to hear your thoughts on this.
    I find men more of a challenge to make for too.
