Here some preview images from some solid bronze items byFeinschmuck. Each single piece is unique by the traditional wax cast process. Skillful patinated and by so already unique in its look. Use the hooks to safely attach your wallet, keys or knife with a leash or chain to your jean. Right now they are available with cherry blossoms and surfaces from ray and ostrich.
Heuer 510.501 Chronograph glass fixed by Peter Gernsberger – RLX5513:
Used, abused and finally I fucked up the glass by dropping it twice on the floor. So this tough dude was on rest for about half a year now. On my recent trip to Frankfurt I was glad to meet Peter Gernsberger from RLX5513. He said he can fix it, so I gave him the chrono without any receipt and hardly knowing him, apart from some messages and spending some hours with him on that day. Precious to me, not just be-causeof it´s “steetvalue”. Peter fixed the Heuer within a bit more than 24 hours. No worries about the chrono being lost by DHL and probably to see my face in joy and disbelieve when he gave it back to me. Agreed was he will fix it within 2 weeks due to his busy schedule. The surprise hit me without any clue.
I´m hardly able to thank him enough for that favour. But in the trustful network of friends and friends of friends which I expanded also via be-cause there are ways to payback “debts” and favours.
We will go hiking right now, but super last minuteManfred from Feinschmuck gave me a first sample of step one for making a special Zippo. The patina of the brass looks like not well treated parts on a ship in saltwater conditions (Or as Eric once said “angeranzt“). This is only step one, we are still brainstorming what motive shall be included on one of the sides of the Zippo. Suggestions are welcome!
The Feinschmuck Anchor belt buckle is aging:
Yesterday the Feinschmuckanchor belt buckle got some treatment and is now ready for some leatherwork which will be done by Simon from after the denim. This is how the belt buckle looked before.
Bronze Celtic Warrior armlet by Feinschmuck:
Another great piece by Feinschmuck. A 99,9%, very detailed reproduction of a cast bronze Celtic warrior armlet, torque decorated with engraved geometrical pattern, Hallstatt culture (about 800 to 475BC). Manfred did a great job of putting some patina on it, just in case you do not want to wear it for some centuries.
Feinschmuck Lindauer Belt – used, mine vs. Maria´s:
Today I saw Maria´s Feinschmuck Lindauer belt and somehow her leather showed a lot more wear and a nicer color. Can it be that she has worn it more often?
The angle of the camera might cheat a bit. The lower belt is 3 cm while the upper one is 4 cm (the leather). The upper buckle 0,5 cm wider (4,5 cm) but 0,1 cm (8,2 cm) shorter.
