Cufflinks do not have to be strict andofficial - a small individual detail on a strict suit looks even more impressive and says a lot about the owner. Here are 5 ideas on how to make unusual cufflinks.

Cuff links consist of two parts - a mechanism,allowing to fix them on cuffs, and top ornaments. The mechanism can be bought separately, the bases for cufflinks are sold in any store for a hobby or needlework, or you can make yourself from a short pin and one rivet.

Necessary materials

If you chose the second option, for the basics, take:

  • 1 large rivet;

  • 1 short metal pin under the color of the rivet;

  • 1 short metal pin under the color of the rivet;

  • solder.

  1. Insert the pin into one of the rivet parts (not smooth, but with a hole), and solder it to it.

  2. Attach the second piece from above, but do not drive it with a hammer: the upper rivet can be used as a button, it snaps into place and can be removed.

The base is ready, now you need to make the top, decorative part.

  3. Place the bent paperclips on the coins, glue it on top with tape and hit them with a hammer until the paperclips push the grooves into the copper.

  4. Put bent paperclips on coins

  5. Using a torch and a hammer, give the coin a slightly curved, convex shape.

  6. Solder to the substrate.

  7. convex form

  8. Process the metal with a grinding tool, and then fill the grooves with black lacquer so that they are more noticeable.

  9. fill the groove-lines with black lacquer
