This is forged stainless steel,made for my burly cousin to wear at Burning Man. I finished just in time and sent it out there with one of my house mates to deliver.
I have stamped his personal symbols on both sides of the flat behind-the -neck section as well as at the ends of both button finials. I started with 1/2 X 1/2 inch solid square bar.
I have polished only the high parts and thus utilized the contrast left by the darkened areas from forging.
Update Sept 13th,2007
My cousin loved the piece and has requested I design and forge 2 matching wrist cuffs. Since he is in Massachusetts,I'll wait for him to CAST positives of his wrists and send them to me so that I'll be able (in California) to fabricate and fit the cuffs perfectly...
