We've been featuring different cigar art lately, but we've never talked about cigar jewellery until now! As usual, keep reading for a chance to win a really cool product.
Today we're introducing you to Broc Kensington. Broc is the jeweler who outfits Jonathan Drew with all of his wears and also produces the Drew Estate jewelry seen at many events and retailer gatherings.
Here is Broc's story:
In 2012 after becoming friends with a rep for Drew Estate, we started designing some customs jewelry for him to wear at his events and such. This led to designing 3-4 pieces and sneaking me into the IPCPR in Orlando in order to show them to JD himself. I was 19 at the time and totally new to that large of an event. Nonetheless, after waiting 8 hours to speak to Jon, he was amazed at the pieces we had produced and from then on has been a mentor and the largest supporter of my work.
Broc has an Etsy shop that features all of his work. Each piece is hand crafted, by Broc himself, in proprietary tarnish-resistant sterling silver and comes with a 1-year warranty. He's also available for custom work (contact e-mail: kensingtonwatchservices[at]yahoo[dot]com) - he does everything from engagement rings to biker style wallet chains. His Instagram channel shows some more examples of his works.
Broc told us that the most popular pieces were the Liga Privada pendant and the Undercrown ring that you see on the pictures in this post - and he's willing to give away both items (worth $290 each) to our readers! How cool is that? Just comment on this post (tell us which one you prefer - the pendant or the ring - and why) to enter - this contest is open worldwide!
The two winners will be announced in one week, next Thursday.
