Rolls Royce Jet Engine Cufflinks From A Hawker Fighter Plane
These are the latest cufflinks to be added to my store. These are very limited edition cufflinks made from Rolls Royce Jet engine turbine blades they are made from bronze. Each set is a little different in size due to the taper of the blade, the material is super hard and polishes up to a wonderful golden lustre. The blades that I have used to make the Jet engine blade cufflinks with were from a hawker fighter plane in the UK, the diagram shows just how many blades are contained inside the engine. It is cufflinks like these that I love to make, something with a story or history converted into a contemporary set of cufflinks for men made in Ireland.
Recently I ran a competition on Facebook & Instagram to name my new jewellery collection which consist of a cheeky set of silver cufflinks and a silver pendant on a chain. The winning name that was picked was DOUG
I think everybody will agree that Doug The Pug looks like a top dog.
Congratulations to the winner of the competition Aaron Rocheteau Pitman who gets the first pendant from the collection. The cufflinks are in stock now and the pendants are available to pre-order.
