Q.
I have many pairs of cuff links from my father who has passed away. I would like to make earrings out of them for myself and my sisters. Many of them can probably be made into post style earrings and some can be attached to ear wires. I don't have any idea how to go about doing this; any help/ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

To make post earrings, glue a flat pad earstud finding to the back of the cufflink using the appropriate type of glue and let cure/dry.

To make dangle earrings, glue a bail to the cufflink back and let cure/dry. Using chain-nose pliers or bent chain-nose pliers, open the loop on the bottom of an earwire and attach it to the bail. Close the loop to secure.
