To mark the Year of the Dragon in 2012 and to celebrate the centennial of a "hundred year old dragon," Patinova has made cufflinks from a late Qing (1644-1912) / early Republic (1912–1949) zodiac dragon, originally created as a miniature paperweight.
The dragon figure is a hand-made reproduction of the original with the addition of a push-through stud to turn it into a cufflink. The entire cufflink is made of sterling silver
Patinova is a company with a sense of history rooted in the people and the place that is the modern Hong Kong. They find historical objects which tell a story and bring them into the 21st century so that their story can be retold in a new way.
