I recently purchased 20 pairs of cuff link blanks.
The goal here is to craft these little guys into epic emblems of individuality – little accents of irreverence to be worn by an otherwise tied, pressed, and primmed Mike D. The three pairs that I already own are: Rockstar insignia, Scrabble Pieces, and Veloceraptors (link to pics). The top of my new blanks are 10mm in diameter, so I have plenty of room to glue fun tops that surpass the awesomeness of my purchased french cuff frills.
With the help of a few friends, I’ve come up with the following ideas:
Tiny Battle Star Galactica Raptors (spaceships)
Tiny Nintendo Controllers
Tiny gears and/or mechanical linkages
Do you have any recommendations?

Wow! These are totally excellent.
How about just two granite rocks for climbing(granite somehow seems like a good climbing rock).
This is brilliant. I will definitely do this.
individual planets or model solar system

giant robots smashing into other giant robots logo
magic eye picture (good luck making that work)
Was there a GRSIOGR logo?
These are good ideas. Individual planets would be especially sweet I think!
Jesse informs me that yes. There is such a logo. he has provided it:
Perhaps some Mike n’ Ikes
Some miniature Cufflinks
a painted on symbol like the one on the Headband Ralph Macchio wears in The Karate Kid
a small setup with a speaker on one with a wire running the the other that has a few tiny buttons, with a circuit board attached to your belt so you can rock out aat any time.
I totally meant the Battlestar Galactica Viper by the way. not the raptor.
Not something that you should make, but a way that you could carve it:
scratch in your design with a sharp pointy piece of metal. Then rub Silver Black into the entire front of the cufflink, then polish it off. Scrimshaw!!
3-D Diamonds carved into the metal. Imagine how classy you’ll feel…
