And I think it's not necessarily the "original" idea, but the fact that it's customizeable, and we all can get on board for that as long as it's good quality, reasonable price and good...

Quote: Originally Posted by Chris Rimby Absolutely. +1 to this entire statement. We can definitely do heavy double-sided silver links. I do think we should keep one side smaller than a buttonhole. It is more expensive to use a screwpost and tedious. As for choices, I think geometric shapes could be good, i.e. stars, pyramids, spheres, etc. Also animals or flowers might be fun. Do people prefer both sides of identical size and shape...
