Show off your taste for fine craftsmanship and nature's beauty with these handcrafted cufflinks. Each pair is handmade from the most beautiful and rare woods and materials from around the world and is made one pair at a time by me, by hand, in my home shop. Because materials vary greatly in color, figure, and texture, these are individually photographed and the exact item pictured will be the one you receive. They measure 1" long by 3/8" wide.

Acacia koa is a species of flowering tree in the pea family, Fabaceae. It is endemic to the Hawaiian Islands. Its name in the Hawaiian language, koa, also means brave, bold, fearless, or warrior. Koa is a large tree, typically attaining a height of 49–82 ft and a spread of 20–39 ft. In deep volcanic ash, a koa tree can reach a height of 98 ft, a circumference of 20 ft, and a spread of 125 ft.

Curl is a feature of koa in which the growth of the wood fibers is distorted in an undulating chatoyant pattern, producing wavy lines known as curl. This effect is often mistakenly said to be part of the grain of the wood. However, it is more accurately called figure, as the distortion is perpendicular to the grain direction. A picture does not accurately portray the "movement" in the wood that occurs when these cufflinks move under light. It appears to move like gentle waves in the ocean.

If you would like to see other views of these cufflinks or if you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to ask. I try to return all conversations within a matter of hours. I also accept custom requests and engraving on some items. The storage box pictured is imprintable, so if you would like initials or a name, that can be done for an extra fee. If there is something special that you have in mind, please feel free to ask without any obligation, and we can discuss your options.
