From Chess Board to French Cuff

I was asked by a young couple to create unique earrings and cuff links for their bridal party. Working with the bride and groom we found the perfect combination of stones–moonstone, labradorite, and black onyx–to create the elegant look they wanted.

In order to make the cuff links extra special for the groom I wanted to use stones that had some significance to him. I was able to obtain onyx chess pieces from a set his grandmother had given to his parents 20 years before. The set was no longer complete, but the pieces could find new life as cuff links, a meaningful “something old” to adorn the men’s cuffs.

The gallery above shows the transformation from chess piece to micro mosaic cuff link.
