I’ve experimented with some prototype cufflinks for Lord Coconut, made using wedding invitation papers.
Given my cufflinks are simply paper woven with silver (protected under a layer of 1mm clear perspex), it’s relatively easy to incorporate papers of (nearly) any kind.
It interesting though that the pattern on the paper be so clear, yet it can either disappear or be accentuated by the weaving.
The pattern for the cufflinks above center on the heart-shape shown on the paper just below the actual cufflink.
And those below on the bowl-and-fountain (erm, best description I could think of at the time!) icon.
I wonder if they’ll appeal?
On a similar topic – the idea of weaving sentimental papers into cufflinks really appeals to me – though I’m sure if I am ever asked to do that for a client that I’ll be pretty darn nervous! Like I did with my Nana’s trifle recipe brooch, I’d likely do a very high quality scan first as a means of saving the document (in a way) … anyway, that’s for the future.
