The bracelets and earrings pictured here were all made from men’s antique cufflinks, many of them dating back to the 1800’s. The materials they are made from include gold (various contents, difficult to identify) , silver, mother of pearl, glass and celluloid. The artistry and materials used created cufflinks that were elegant and, today, are unsurpassed.
I find most of these cufflinks at auction in ‘singles’ lots and take great pleasure in mixing and matching them up to make these most unusual bracelets and earrings. The pairs used to make the earrings are mostly from the double-sided and ‘kum-apart’ cufflinks. These jewelry pieces are elegant, rich, and will draw attention.
