Oxidation between the shell's ridges make this pair of highly polished sterling silver beetle cufflinks come alive with dimension. Javanese artisan Zayd Makarim explains his relationship to craftsmanship as, "It started as an assignment for school but, by doing them (paintings and sculptures), I discovered I liked art so much that it became one of my passions." These cufflinks tie modern style with worldly identity and beautifully adorn your cuffs.
