Huey Helicopter Chain Made Into A Rare Bracelet

One day, Brian Reynolds, President of Northwest Helicopters, came into Hartley Jewelers of Olympia, Washington, with a rare and exciting custom jewelry challenge. He wanted an actual chain of the iconic 1960's Bell UH-1 "Huey" helicopter flown by American soldiers during the war in Vietnam made into a bracelet. After an extensive world wide search for an authentic tail rotor chain, he was ready to have his long desired custom jewelry piece made.

Watch how the project turned out.

Dimensions: Custom made to wrist size - price includes documents of authentication from Bell engineers. Available in bright silver or dark brown chain.
