I've written a post before about how to make cuff links for men. Alas, few men these days wear shirts which require the use of cuff links. But there is one formal attire men still wear - ties!! So if you have a man or men on your gift list, you got to try this tutorial to make a tie chain. It's not only decorative but functional as it keeps the tie in place especially at meal times!
The tutorial is from the Wigjig site which is an excellent source of all sorts of wire projects. I don't have their jig but I do have the metal variety which I dare say many of you have.
Make sure you close the outer loops well. Otherwise the chain will slip. I think I will do extra wire wrapping next time.
the cuff link store have this ready made tie clip for $15 each which you can wire wrap, solder or even glue whatever you want.
