My husband indulges my love for all things orange (i.e. Hermès), but not only as one would expect. Remember this?
Now he has been at it again.
So we have that box…
Let’s open it!
See that elegant tissue paper? 😉
It is a scarf ring in the shape of a stirrup.
M made it out of chromium cobalt molybdenum, a metal usually used for dental work. He made a wax model himself and then proceeded to cast it in metal.
Here is my lovely stirrup on Hermès Parures de Maharaja 90cm silk twill.
It’s gorgeous, isn’t it?
That’s why I can highly recommend a man with technical skills. You never know what he uses them for…
He can now have a third job… 🙂
Yes, he would do well…. 😉
OMG…..What a knockout piece…really beautiful!
Thank you, annielill!
Wow, what a lovely husband you have!!
Very very nice,Birgit!Yup,he’s a keeper!It’s good to have other skills in this economy…lol!Seriously:what a thoughtful,fantastic gift.Love that scarf!!And now you have a piece of M (or made by M!),to wear close to your heart.Cheeky stirrup design!Hehe!(as a theatre nurse,it’s part of the furniture at work…lol!!)
P.S:Seeing that you’re branching out with other subjects on OT this year;maybe THE HUSBAND could feature more with his own posts?Lol!I’m sure he’s had a couple of interesting olfactory experiences in his practise!!haha!xo
I will work on it! Although M’s olfactory experiences at work are not of the best kind. 😉
OMG, I didn’t have that association! It’s a stirrup for a horse’s saddle of course! 🙂
Lol!But of course!haha!It’s gorgeous and perfect.I’m wondering:does M have copyright on that work of art?The “other” orange company might want to invest in producing that accesory themselves!;-))
Good thinking, Johano! 😉
That took my breath away! Stunning.
Thank you, Jane, glad you like it!
So beautiful! The man loves you,B!And the ring looks amazing paired with that incredible scarf.Hermes have such an array of stunning patterns,I always end up staring longingly at their shop window.But I still love perfume more than I do silk.For now☺
I love that “For now”. 🙂
I really didn’t think the contents could live up to that box but WOW.
Just perfect, B.
I was very surprised indeed, a really lovely peace.
That’s amazing! Well done that husband.
Er ist ein g’schickter Kerl. 😉
OMG, it’s gorgeous! As I said to him ages ago, I would marry him right away, if he were rich and a little bit more handsome:-)
Hehehe, he loves hearing that of course! 😉
Very nice and original gift, definitely made with love
Definitely! Thanks, Lucas.
Good looking AND talented too! That is so sweet of him to have made that. You’ve got a good one there. No wonder Portia is in love with him. 😉
Yes, if I don’t keep watch Portia is going to kidnap him to Australia.
HA!! I have enough on my plate with the one I’ve got thanks B but your man is handy and handsome. That’s cool. You two are very lucky, he is good people and so are you Birgit.
LOVING the stirrup, wear it in the best of good health.
Thanks, lovely Portia!
What a wonderful, handmade gift. Enjoy, dear B 🙂
I am, dear Jim!
How gorgeous! (and ashamedly, I had no idea such things existed – but it makes perfect sense). What a lovely and thoughtful gift. You’ve got yourself a keeper!
Glad I could show you something new!
I guess I will keep him… 😉
What a wonderful funny and thoughtful gift! Your husband has alot of talents!
He does indeed. 🙂
Your husband certainly has good taste and a special talent for pleasing his wife. The gift is lovely and will be perfect with all your scarves..Merci à Hermès.
He found a way around Hermès! 😉
Your husband is pure genius, Birgit. That is a beautiful scarf ring and you photographed it exquisitely with your Hermes scarf. I have a feeling that if a Mercure store was opened at a Faux Bourg location in Vienna, it might give the venerated boutique at 24 Faubourg a run for its money!!
Way to go, Dr. O! 🙂
He should think about a different career path. 😉
Ha! Now I understand the idea of a scarf ring 🙂 What a couple of beauties. I love the idea that one can accent an already fantastic looking accessory – and arrange a scarf so differently. I’ve always been more of a “wooly” scarf wearer, but the idea of such elegance has got my fingers itching to go surfing ….
And kudos to The Husband – what talent and thoughtfulness.
Have fun surfing a little, Sally! 🙂
Wowee! What a nice surprise – a gift made lovingly. As many have said, M’s a keeper and you’re a perfect match for each other.
Thanks hajusuuri! We got lucky, I guess… 🙂
🙂 Congratulations on that lovely gift and on that special husband! 🙂
Does he want to open a business making scarf rings? I bet he’ll be very successful!
HAPPY NEW YEAR 🙂
Thank you! 🙂
When he’s had enough of patients’ antics, he might think about a career change… 😉
What a beautiful and thoughtful gift and that scarf looks gorgeous with it! Dr O is very talented and I’m loving this ingenious use of his technical skills..:)
I’m loving this targeted use of his talents too! 😉
I’m beyond being impressed. It’s one of the best gifts I can think of. And thank you for sharing it with us: it is inspiring.
A side note: I should probably learn how to wear scarves – even if without such wonderful accessories.
Beyond impressed coming from you means a lot – Dr O says thank you.
MaiTai is the best source of scarf wearing inspiration!
Well, this is Love!
What a treasure! My scarf collection is very jealous 🙂 .
Thank you! If he ever goes into bigger production, I’ll send you one! 🙂
What an amazing gift from the Husband – polar opposite of going shopping in a desperate fashion on Christmas eve. Aren’t creative surgeons the best!
Indeed and in that it is a 180 degree change to his usual gifting behaviour. 😉
That is metal fabricating (once the key industry round these parts) at its finest! Did he test out the finished thing with actual scarves?
No he did not. Just made sure it was smooth all over. 🙂
