Interesting work. It seems like a very reasonable price given the materials and time and unique product.

Looks good to me. Your photography looks good. You might want to include dimentions of the cuff links. I don’t know if it is the same, but when I listed my jewelry pieces it was the comment I got the most. (which reminds me I need to finish fixing that…)
Anyway, Good luck with your sales.

Nice picture and nice write up too. I really like how you told about it being recycled wood. The price seems in line for etsy. Good luck.

Love your 1P cuff links and they are reasonably priced, but I suppose you have to start somewhere.

The penney link picture will get larger when clicked on and then you can zoom again to really see them. The other cuff link only came up in the same size picture. Try to do the same for the smaller picture.

Think about offering to burn a miniature domino (not the joinery) or side of a dice to the customers choice of numbers. Could be a birthday or special number. You could first drill the eyes a bit and then burn them. Special orders are extra $$.

The Irish penny links are really neat. I wish I knew someone who wore cuff links!
