This is my first item made with Pink Ivory wood. No dyes have been used as this colour is natural.

I have used a high quality 32GB flash drive, housed in a hand carved pink ivory chassis with around 35 individual parts. It features a blue activity LED framed by a metal ring that shows through the lid of the key when working and a brass face plate for the usb connector. So it can be worn as a necklace I added an aluminium tube to the key which I have threaded 3mm rubber thonging through, this clips behind the neck with a matching custom made, rare earth magnetic clasp.

After the success of my original USB heart pendant I have created one in ebony.

I hand carved the heart from ebony wood. I bent an old watch back to fit the shape then using recycled cogs and gears created a small unique movement.

I fitted a 16GB USB drive inside which can simply be pulled out when required. It features a blue activity LED framed by a metal ring that shows through the lid of the key when working.

I have also given the wood a glossy finish leaving it more durable but also silky to the touch.

This is a particularly special key, it is my first USB key made from historic wood.

I hand carved the chassis out of oak taken from the HMS Victory ship. I have integrated a high quality 32GB USB stick. It features a unique mechanical movement created from individual watch parts salvaged from irreparable movements. A red LED light has been incorporated to the design, which flashes when in use. A brass face plate has been added to surround the USB connector. The key comes complete with a lid hand carved to represent the bow of the ship.

The keys comes in custom packaging with a paper provenance as proof of authenticity as shown in the bottom photo. I also will be including an oxidized iron nail I removed from the original wood which is featured in the top photo next to the USB key.

This item will soon be available for purchase.

Cufflink Dimensions:
16mm x 23mm x 9mm

In this particular design I have created two unique cufflinks, both of which feature a 8GB usb drive concealed inside (Totaling 16GB of storage). This not only removes the need to separately carry a usb key to the office, but also enables you to have one for work and one for personal use.

The item has been made by hand from the ground up. I have used an 8GB flash drive in each cufflink, housed in a hand carved, Paduak chassis with around 30individual parts. It features a blue activity LED framed by a metal ring that shows through the lid of the key when working. The back is veneered in walnut with sterling silver cufflink findings.

All the watch parts have come from damaged or irreparable pocket & wrist watches (between 10 & 30 years old) that have been hand disassembled and then combined to create a true, miniature work of art.

Here is a link to my first pair that got featured on engadget:

This is my fifth Mechanical Memory Pendant. This beautiful item is in the same style as my previous USB keys but also doubles as a unique steampunk necklace.

The item has been made from the ground up taking over 12 hours to complete. I have used the highest quality 8GB flash memory, housed in a hand carved paduak chassis with around 35 individual parts. It features a blue activity LED framed by a metal ring that shows through the lid of the key when working. So it can be worn as a necklace I added an aluminium tube to the key which I have threaded 4mm rubber thonging through, this clips behind the neck with a matching custom made, rare earth magnetic clasp.

This a prototype ring I designed in December.

I hand carved a piece of cocobolo wood for the ring then inlaid a broken usb stick into the top. I have added two metal plates to keep the usb in place.

I originally planned for this ring to have a working usb drive that could be slid out. But this design leaves the drive pretty unprotected and is a bit fiddly unless the wearer plans on carrying round a miniature screw driver :D

This design is not yet for sale until I have decided whether to leave it as a basic piece of jewellery or to make it a working usb drive.

After spending time creating cufflinks and pendants I decided to create a USB key more like my original designs.

This is "Mechanical Memory Key No14"

This is a 16gb hand carved custom usb flash drive. It is made out of a relatively rare & beautiful exotic wood called 'hydeua'. Both sides have been decorated with recycled watch parts and comes complete with a wooden lid. When plugged in the key glow red underneath the gears.
