By pure luck, we discovered these cool cufflinks from an English designer, Alice Walsh. Her label, Alice Made This, features designer cufflinks that are industrially inspired, and treated using electroplating and other material treatments. Her love of manufacturing began whilst she was designing for Tom Dixon; his individual approach, interest in manufacturing and love of raw material aesthetics inspired her.
Her career after Tom Dixon has been marked with a number of great labels such as De Beers, Conran, Habitat, Panasonic, British Airways and Anthony Dickens, enabling her to develop her passion for collaborating with factories and working with raw materials. This was the foundation for Alice Made This, cufflinks that are manufactured in Great Britain itself.
Certainly quirky but classically styled, these cufflinks are minimally classic, playing on architectural designs and styles. Emblazoned with the letter ‘a’, they are the perfect gift for a man of style and success.
The collection 001 Collection – 001 is the launch collection, a precision metal turned collection using stainless steel, brass and copper. Each design is produced in limited edition batches of 1000, with the edition number handwritten on the box. Each collection differs in its forms and materials, as determined by its manufacturing process.
The collection 002 was introduced earlier this month, created using electroplating. The collection 002 is a gold and rhodium plated precision metal turned range using a brass base. Expanding on the Precision Metal Turned manufacturing technique, designer Alice Walsh has
added the post process – electroplating, coating her new designs in 24 ct. gold and pure rhodium. The high polish, precious metal finishes add a new dimension to the Alice Made This clean aesthetic. Electroplating is widely used in nanotechnology for the engineering and electronic industries. Like the first line, each design is produced in limited edition batches of 1000, with the edition number handwritten on the box.
