Default Alumilite Cuffs and .45's on a cigar

This was one of those "Can you do this for me" EXPERIMENT. The bottom is a .45 Long Colt and a .45 ACP stacked on top. The top tube is chemically darkened and has what was two pair of hand cuff ear rings attached to it and then cast in Alumilite using Charlies (newlondon88)resin saving mold. One is for a Police Officer and One is for a P&P Officer.
Comments are welcome, Thanks for Looking.

Those look great! Very interesting idea! A little too much gold for my taste but I'm sure they will LOVE their new pens!

Nice Idea and very well executed. I think maybe a navy blue top might have nice.

Very clever. Did you have to bend the hand cuffs around the tube?

Yes I did, I used a piece of hard wood, drilled through it then cut it in half. I then placed the cuffs on the block with the smooth end of a smaller drill bit on top and used my arbor press to bend the cuff down in to the block.
