Design with gold plated rims


The temple arms will need to be fabricated and forged to give a smooth curve as well as sufficient strength, but I see no major stumbling blocks, we just need to tweak the shapes of the various components.

The arms will be "webbed" at the hinge end, so we have a relatively broad expanse of metal to do something with, as far as texture or color is concerned. Highly polished surfaces do tend to scratch quickly, so in terms of durability, a matt surface is preferable, however, some recessed areas could hold a gleam of gold tone or polished silver.

Lens rims gold plated, check.
