Jet Engine to Jewellery

This project is a collaboration between Rolls-Royce & Partners Finance and Glasgow School of Art to re-use retired jet engine parts as part of RRPF’s circular economy mission. 

By carefully looking at these decommissioned aircraft engine components sent from RRPF, I was fascinated by the Seal Segments. The parts selected were originally from Trent 700 and had been in service for Airbus A330-243 for over 20 years, completing 10,000 flights, 63,000 flying hours and connecting 3 million people between Manchester and multiple destinations in the USA and some other places worldwide. 

Eventually, these parts have been transformed into multiple narrative wearable jewellery pieces such as cufflinks, earrings, lapel pins and pendants.
