Gothic Gauntlet by Ageofarmour Gothic Gauntlet by Ageofarmour
A closer photo of the left gauntlet of my Gothic armour [link]

I received a number of emails asking how many hearts are pierced into the plates over the whole suit. I meant to count them but forgot to do so before it shipped to the UK. My best guess... A lot! hehe. They were made by punching a small hole then carving away the metal with jeweler's files. Individually they don't take very long but together they probably took several hundred hours.

I like how there is a spike where the wristbone sticks out@

Until now these Gauntlets are the most awesome ones I have seen, yet.
Although the complete armour is an absolute masterpiece, but these are outstanding by far!

This is a really spectacular piece, and the craftsmanship is absolutely exquisite. I think that everything you set out to do here, you accomplished. I cannot find one flaw from this picture.
Gorgeous.
