Cufflinks have always been something that I've been fascinated and intrigued by. They have been a part of the gentlemen's wardrobe for centuries and cufflinks have come to represent a certain sophistication and means for expressing various qualities, personal interests and associations. From Russian Tsars, to businessmen across the world, movie stars and the man in the street and at work, all have worn and in many cases garnered stunning collections of cufflinks. To my mind, over recent decades men seem to have been fairly conservative, for the most part, in the type of jewellery that they wore however, thankfully, today we are seeing this begin to open up. Perhaps the most common articles of jewellery that men wear are the wristwatch and if married, a wedding ring. You might also see the odd signet ring, chain, bracelet or ear stud. Most pleasing to my eye however are the number cufflinks that I see being worn. For the most part these are stock standard items that are mass produced and fairly bland but they are opening up an exciting avenue for men and women to express themselves in a very personal way.
What I want to do is offer unique handmade cufflinks that draw upon the many elements and facets of study and artistic pursuits I have embraced over the years. Amongst many things, I have always had a love of geometry, symmetry and proportion and I've been fortunate enough to be able to work with beautiful gems. This has allowed me to take 2D representations of these elements from the page and embody them in the 3D. It's a wonderful exercise for the mind and the skill of the hands. I now further want to extend this into the creation of extraordinary cufflinks.
