Our new Bee Cuff is made from metal taken from the hood of an Aston Martin Rapide S painted Onyx Black with a metallic finish. This elegant and distinctive car is the perfect landing place for our honey bee. We employed the ancient Korean technique called Keum-Boo whereby 24k gold pieces cut from gold sheets are applied to hot metals, in this case steel. We slowly heated the steel stamped bee and using agate burnishers, we carefully fused pieces of 24k gold sheet to the metal. Cold connections or rivets are used to attach the honey bee to the Aston Martin cuff as we cannot use a hot torch which would destroy the car's factory sparkly finish. Finally, using small burrs, we meticulously outlined the shape of the bee, scraping away paint to reveal the shiny aluminum underneath. The juxtaposition of silver, black steel, and bright gold creates a beautiful tableau for the relief-like two dimensional bee that seems to be rising from the cuff itself.

Taking car metal and turning it into beautiful jewelry is no easy task. Our artists spend a lot of time ensuring that each CRASH item meets our high standards for quality and design.  

Inside the cuff is a laser-engraved CRASH tag and the name of the car it came from. All CRASH jewelry is one-of-a-kind and handmade in our studio based in a body shop in Los Angeles. Your order will arrive in custom CRASH packaging with a Certificate of Authenticity. 1 1/2" wide.

NOTE: Every cuff will be different in that the placement of gold will vary. This ensures that your cuff is truly one of a kind.

How do I know what size Cuff to order?

Use a soft tape measure and wrap it tightly around your wrist above the bone. Note the measurement in inches and subtract 1/2" for the opening gap. For example, if your wrist measures 7" in circumference then you would order a 6.5". Please refer to our size chart and use our drop-down menu to select size.
If this is a gift please send us an email and we'll help you figure it out.

It's a gift. I don't know their size.

If you are ordering a cuff as a gift and do not know the recipient's wrist size, we suggest that you stealthily locate their watch (assuming they wear a watch.)
Example:  We measured by pressing the entire watch down so it was flat. Then we marked where they fastened their watch (3rd hole from the end). Finally, we measured from just above the buckle to the 3rd hole which is approximately 7".

How do I put on a Cuff?

1. Turn your arm up and find a soft point on your inner forearm right above your wrist. (This is also referred to as the flat part of your upper wrist.)
2. Position the cuff in a 'C' shape and press into the soft spot on your forearm.
3. Press gently into the soft spot and roll your arm right into the opening of the cuff.
4. Slide the cuff down to the bottom of the wrist.
You can adjust the tightness of the cuff by gently squeezing it snug.
Most importantly: Do not force the cuff open as rivets may 'pop'.
5. To remove: slide cuff up to the flat part (soft spot) of your inner forearm and reverse the process.
Here is a video (not mine) that does a great job of explaining the technique.
