Having recently been awarded my CFM, I’ve decided to take apart my medals and redo them as court mounted.
It took me a lot longer to do than I expected, and whilst they’re not perfect, they’ll do. However:
I rather expected the medals themselves to be a lot more…tied-down/stationary than they are.
Do people hot-glue them down or something? Yes- they’re stitched around the suspended shank. Yet the medals seem surprisingly…mobile?!
First time I’ve ever done my medals court-mounted (and that’s with nearly 30yrs of swing-mounted metalwork) so perhaps I just don’t know what to expect
