Inspiration
Don't ever tell me we don't post anything original here at the Cafe! Open your minds and imagine being given this design assignment - "Design dozens of medals - they all have to basically be round and no two can look the same." I find these absolutely fascinating and wildly inspiring - from the pressed metal, fluted edges to the inlaid enamels. Antique Chinese medals. There are dozens to look at and buy, if you are so inclined, right here.
