All the talk about paper fortune-tellers reminded me of something I had been meaning to post aaages ago. A while back I got a commission to make some cufflinks, in the same vein as my jewellery/clothes/accessories, meaning in some way recycled, re-purposed and re-constructed. And these were the results...

The insides/cogs of old watches, and some military pins found at a car boot.



Where's Wally fortune-tellers, and of course, Lego.


School sports badges, found at a car boot.


I was really excited to do this project as it means I've finally got an item for the guys! Lots of people ask me if I do stuff for guys, or why don't I, and it's just simply because....Well guys aren't so much into wearing/buying accessories, and I guess, being a girl, ideas for females just occur to me more often! But actually, after making these, I feel like ripping off the buttons and adding an extra hole on a couple of my shirts, so I can wear some too. Especially the watch ones, as some may know, for no particular reason, I am ever so fond of everything watch related.
