Developing an interest in art, design and technology at an early age Jack found his forte in goldsmithing. At the Birmingham Institute of Art and Design where Jack broadened and honed his skill, the technological advances in design opened up new possibilities. Combining his traditional skill with innovative applications of technology such as CAD Jack became fascinated with its potential to create innovative, exciting products. A result of this enthusiasm and skill his catalogue of creations offer the best in British design and craftsmanship. While the Architect collection remains his most celebrated work, Mirage continues a trend of moulding precious metals with a precise finesse.
Working from his studio based in Birmingham’s historic Jewellery Quarter the Mirage Collection of jewelled pens and cufflinks came to being as a limited edition of 250 pieces worldwide. Each ‘Mirage’ writing instrument is lavishly entwined with approximately twenty metres (sixty-five feet) of hand-twisted sterling wire. This traditional goldsmithing technique creates an entirely unique pattern every time. This imparts individuality to each piece and evokes the infinitely variable patterns formed in desert sands.

The writing instruments are available in a range of finishes to suit all tastes, including classic silver, yellow gold, rose gold, or black-antique. Hand finished and polished, each pen also features a stylish sprung clip, which can have the added luxury of a sparkling 0.5 carat marquise-cut gemstone, such as tanzanite, emerald or pink sapphire. They also feature a classic British Hallmark with added rampant lion heraldry.
Each pen is flawlessly balanced and available with a choice of flexible titanium nib, solid 18ct gold nib or ceramic roller ball that makes writing a pleasure. Beautifully presented in a matt-black, soft-touch presentation box, these luxury silver pens are perfect for gifting. The trim of the pens can be personalised to celebrate a prestigious occasion or honour a valued individual.
The Mirage Collection writing instruments are priced between £995 (USD 1,650) and £1,595 (USD 2,643), with complementing cufflinks priced at £199 (USD 330)
Matching luxury cufflinks are hand crafted in from solid sterling silver with a choice of black-antique, rose gold or yellow gold finishes. These beautiful accessories feature a three-dimensional twisted wire texture set within a clean, circular mount. Boasting a traditional British hallmark and hinged, swivel-back fastenings they are a smart addition to both formal and smart-casual attire. Well suited to the individual who has refined tastes and an admiration for design and craftsmanship, these Jack Row luxury silver cufflinks are also ideal for gifting.
Commenting on the idea behind his latest creation Jack explained, “my aim was to create a luxurious collection of pens and cufflinks, which are carefully hand-crafted and individually unique, yet priced at a specific point in order to make my work accessible to a wider range of clients and collectors.”
