Philadelphia, PA-based "rogue silversmith" Jen Roder gathers up discarded bottle capsm, upcycling them into cufflinks, dubbed Rotorcaps.
Handmade with nickel silver and genuine Magic Hat, PBR, Blue Moon, Dogfish Head, Rolling Rock and—my personal favorite—Rogue bottle caps, the extremely well-crafted upshot adds irreverence without looking too kitschy. (Roder also makes pendant necklaces out of the caps, in case youâ€™re not exactly the French cuffs type.)
Pricing starts at $40 for most sets of inks, though Roder also offers sterling silver bottle cap designs, including San Pellegrino stars, for $150 a pair. All sell on the Rotorcaps website.
