Cog Wheel Cufflinks

Miniature mechanical components always catch my attention. In some magical way, gears, cog wheels, pinions and prongs get each other to turn so that an instrument or device moves, ticks or buzzes. You will find these tiny fangs and differentials in abundance inside timepieces and movie cameras. But your bicycle or car has them just the same, only heavier and bigger in size.

I have made a pair of cog wheel cufflinks in solid sterling silver. Each cufflink measures 22 mm in diameter and is 3 mm thick which makes them very durable. I have removed any sharp edges, and have given them a smooth matte finish for maximum comfort. So, what are you guys waiting for? Time to shift to the next level and get going with a pair of gear cufflinks! The matching tie clip that I am working on will be ready soon!

  1. Hi,
    I am glad you like my cufflinks! Stay tuned, as I am making pictures of another pair that I have made. It's a set of double helix (DNA) cufflinks.
