Wine Barrel Cuff Links
Size: .75" long x .50" high
These eco-friendly sterling silver cuff links are made of recycled oak wine barrels from the Napa Valley. The unique design features wood that's beautifully wine stained. (In better wineries, an oak barrel is used only once or twice; afterwards it ceases to give off its rich flavor.) A perfect environmentally friendly gift for wine-appreciating dads, husbands, boyfriends, and friends and co-workers.
In 1980, when the City of New York discontinued its "Y" cutout subway tokens, Ward Wallau decided they should be recycled into cuff links. After 11 years spent petitioning the New York Transit Authority for permission to use them, he was granted an exclusive license to incorporate discontinued tokens in his jewelry. Now he also recycles outdated coins, circuit boards and SCRABBLETM tiles in his jewelry and accessories.
