This is a beautiful short film showing the art of hand engraving.
The film was produced by Goldsmiths' University students, Paulina Skorupska and Yasmin Salem for the Hand Engravers Association of Great Britain.
Here is the first stage of one of our initial cufflinks being prepared from the raw casting. As you can see it's a time consuming and laborious job but well worth getting right at the early stages as it's this hand work which allows the final finish to be so perfect. If the early preparation work isn't done properly then the final polishing would have to done much harder, resulting in a rounded and over-polished result. These are all made in our own workshop from solid hallmarked sterling silver
