Trench art cufflinks | Spitfire plane | green | Martin de Ruyter
These Spitfire Cufflinks are handmade and hand painted by photographer and artist Martin de Ruyter in Nelson, New Zealand. Layered with historical meaning and symbology, each spitfire has been created in the tradition of Trench Art, by repurposing .303 calibre bullets - the same calibre that was used in WW1 and WW2.
Martins’ late grandfather James (Jim) Fisher taught him how to form a spitfire from a three pence coin and it's a skill Martin still uses today to make these cufflinks.
