Firstly the ogham design is drawn on to the cufflink. This design is engraved with the word grá (pronounced graw) which is the Irish word for love. Once I am happy with the drawing it's time to start engraving the ogham design into the silver.
This is what the cufflink disc looks like when it comes back from hallmarking, you can see the full Irish hallmark which is stamped with the makers mark, Irish mark and metal purity mark.
The final stage before polishing the cufflinks is to solder the cufflink back onto my disc. All that's left to do now is polish them up and add them to the shop!
