8GB USB Cufflinks - Paduak

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:

Please note I will only be making a limited number in this type of wood.

This is pretty awesome. Think about what it would look like if you were to suddenly pick a USB out of your cufflink.
