- Edelweiss which is derived in the German language as noble and white, is found generally at altitudes from 1700 to 2700 meters in the Alps. These beautiful flowers were known for their medicinal properties and were thought to represent the bravery of men to climb to such an altitude to harvest these beautiful flowers. These Edelweiss flowers are beautifully depicted on these Austrian Edelweiss Coin Cufflinks.
The beautiful contrast in colors will look great on any cuff. The artist applies color to outline the design, a high tempered firing process bakes the enamel onto the cufflink. The process is repeated after each color is applied. The hand-painting process for each piece varies, some taking as long as two days to complete. In the final stage, in order to protect the delicate hand painting, the artist applies and bakes-on a covering of unique resin, which adds depth and luster to the item while providing a lifetime of protection to the piece. Because all of the enamels are mixed by hand at the moment of application, no two pieces are identical, making each item truly an original work of art.
