Description

Cufflinks are the “ultimate understated yet sophisticated accessory for all stylish men” AND WOMEN!!

That’s right. Cufflinks make a perfect gift for that special man however no longer remain accessories in the exclusive realm of the businessman.

Create a unique statement, display some whimsy, depict a personality. Make your own unique pair of cufflinks.

Add to that thought, an elegant decorative brooch.

Historically used to hold garments closed, brooches have become decorative jewellery items in their own right. Making a brooch allows the creator to make almost any design wearable. Funky or elegant, the theme is in the creation.

During this course students will make a brooch and a pair of cufflinks of their own designs using copper and brass and sterling silver findings.
