Shibuichi Cuff Continued

How we began

After discussion with the client, I produced a paper template and cut off the excess from the rolled out material.


The template was drawn out with a permanent marker and then cut out by hand with a piercing saw.
Two lugs were left on the piece to aid in gripping it when mounted on pitch for the engraving. These will be cut off later.

Once the form was pierced out, the sheet was polished with abrasives to 1200 grit, and the botanic design was drawn in preparation for engraving.
