From Racetrack to Kilt

We do get some amazing and interesting commissions to design and make and this one was way up there.
Our customer wanted a set of cufflinks and matching kiltpin for her partner who is a racing driver and his favbourite track to drive is Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium.

With a commission like this, we always produce design drawings. 
There is a particular area of bends on the track that are his favourite.
This we highlighted with a little bit of 18ct yellow gold.
It's colour is a lovely contrast to the silver.

As these pieces are completely unique and handmade, it is possible to add any inscriptions. In this case initials and a symbolic butterfly were hand engraved on the back.

The pieces were also given a satinised design finish inspired by the winner's chequered flag.
