Thanks all for the feedback, I appreciate it and have been busy trying out some of your ideas. I've made three pairs of cufflinks, a men's ring and a pendant that I think might appeal to men. Let me know what you think, are these what you had in mind?
I will note also that other suggestions I got for men's jewelry include tie clip (with matching earrings, wedding gift!), hat bands, belt buckles and bolo ties. I'm working on making some samples of those -- stay posted!
My friends Fred and Leslie tell me I should make jewelry for men. What do you think gentlemen, would you wear a necklace? A ring? Or what about cuff links? (Ladies, you might need to weigh in for the guys since mostly my emails go to you.)
Could you imagine any of the pieces below on a men's necklace (probably mounted in a simpler setting), or on a ring? Or how about the more organic pieces on the right? Comment here to let me know, thanks!
