ART DECO ENAMEL BLUE BUTTON CUFFLINKS FROM SIMON CARTER
Simon Carter is renowned for his attention to fine detail and flair for styling the modern gentleman.
The Guilloché enamel design is inspired by an art deco button containing the idea of natural form being pushed to abstraction, characteristic of the genre. Translucent blue enamel is laid by hand over a gently ridged ground to give the simple, but very beautiful effect pioneered by Carl Fabergé.
An elegant, tasteful cufflink, drawing on some of Simon’s favourite influences and stands out on a crisp white cuff.

Sizzling Summer Competition – Part 1 closes at midnight on 20th June 2018.
Karen can usually be found glued to her computer or at the stables. Having edited several national magazines she co-founded Eclipse Magazine in 2008 after realising that many of her friends were nervous about going racing due to lack of information – what to wear, how to bet etc.
She absolutely loves her job (how many people can say that?!) and is truly grateful to all supporters of and contributors to Eclipse Magazine.
If you are reading this she would like to say THANK YOU! (And please spread the word about Eclipse…!!)
