At the bottom of each word
I’m a spectator at my birth.

made of: silver, copper, 24k, amazonite, vitreous enamel, iron oxide transfer
measurements: These cufflinks measure just over 3/4ths of an inch in diameter and are set in sterling silver.
process: The enameling process for making these cufflinks is labor-intensive. It involves laying layers of finely-ground glass onto the copper forms and firing them multiple times at very high temperatures in a kiln. Lots of protective gear involved at every step. Then I painstakingly gather, cut and arrange tiny fragments of text and imagery from many different eras in history and fuse them into the enamel to tell the stories we may have forgotten.
