Abstract: A simple relationship is presented between the Kauffman polynomial of a framed link $ L$ and the Jones polynomial of a derived link $ \tilde L$. The link is $ \tilde L$ obtained by splitting each component of $ L$ into two parallel strands, using the framing to determine the linking number of the strands. The relation is checked in several nontrivial examples, and a proof of the general result is given.
