As a woman, cufflinks aren't something I think about. Honestly, they seem unecessary; buttons were invented for a reason. But a few weeks ago, I found myself searching around Etsy  (read: procrastinating), and I stumbled upon a charming take on the traditional male accessory.
Denver-based Ryan Young (aka the Crimson King) is a former graphic designer who decided to start his own crafting business . While he also makes earrings (light sabers , anyone?), necklaces, and pendants, it's the cufflinks that caught my eye. Using old LEGOs, Scrabble tiles, broken watch parts, and other reclaimed pieces, he creates unique accessories that let a guy show some personality with his plain black suit. My favorites are the LEGO Darth Vader silver-toned pair (pictured above), but Young's got something for every taste (see below). They range in price from $8 to $25.
Tip: Want a specific LEGO on your cufflink? Going for a particular style with your earrings? Tell Young and he'll do his best to customize your order.
