Boutons de manchette, Monoï en argent et faces bronze

Monoï

In this series, sun meets skin. From bronze to bronzed, from silver to the moon, Samuel Gassmann uses his two materials of choice, those from which his links are traditionally made, as a tracer for exposure to sunlight. Silver for day wear is decorated with a bronze pastille, hinting of skin toasted during the hottest hours of the day, while bronze for evening wear embraces silver as the natural light of day dims. Protection or not, from sunblock to Monoi oil, ultraviolet leaves its mark on the wrist.

Argent

Used to decorate the daywear cufflinks, the speculative nature of silver means that it doesn‘t retain the same symbolic force as bronze. 

Fonte (à cire perdue)

Lost wax casting is a process used to make the links of the cufflinks. They are taken in brut form from the cast in bronze and silver before being worked on.
