Great wall of China double ended 9ct yellow gold. From the Journey to China.
"I drove out of Beijing early one morning with my wonderful driver, Jaws. When we arrived some hours later at Mutianyu, I wandered along the meandering, snake-like pathway, up and down along it's cobbled road, in and out of the sentry post gates. I stopped here and there to gaze at the view or to sit on a step, letting my eyes reach far into the distance. It was here that I started to sketch out the 'Great Wall of China' cufflinks.
The oval outlines of the cufflinks tell the story of the wall with it's brick highway, interspersed, with its gate houses, which I deeply engraved in the surfaces.
My favourite version of the cufflinks are in 18ct gold, where the deep golden yellow contrasts with the darkness of the engraved lines, or with a vivid blue, green or red enamel."
