A Toast To Style

Are you thirsting for a new way to wear French cuffs? These handsome cuff links made from reclaimed beer bottle caps will bring a lighthearted spirit to the sometimes stuffy dress shirt. Artist Laura Beamer collects old bottle caps and then sets them in sterling silver to create a unique accessory that looks great and produces smiles. Choose from the New Belgium graphic red bicycle on orange background or the Bristol Brewing foaming pint glass on black background. Now whenever you look at your wrists, you'll be reminded that work can wait because happy hour is only from 5-7. Made in Oregon. Sold separately.

These items have been discontinued. When they sell out, they will no longer be available. We apologize for an inconvenience.

Laura Beamer

Artist Laura Beamer resides in Oakridge, Oregon with her husband Benjamin. Her lively and spirited jewelry made from recycled bottle caps, vinyl records and license plates is a way for her to get the most out of something. And this fun attitude is not just reflected in her work, but in her life as well.

Beamer collects these found objects and then combines them with sterling silver using rivets and cold connections to create casual, but captivating pieces for all ages and fashion styles. This bright artist began her craft career in 1992 when she bought a loom from a neighbor. She taught herself how to weave, but unfortunately had to quit because she was having lower back pain while working at the loom. This injury led to her line of recycled jewelry in 1999. "I looked at those bottle caps in a different way," Beamer says. "It's really cool that every bottle cap has it's own little piece of art!"

Beamer can be spotted buying old records at Goodwill, and her husband Ben and she will even request discarded beer bottle caps at restaurants despite the raised eyebrows that usually ensue.

"It feels good to extend the life of something a little longer," she says. "We live in such a disposable world."

            Comments about BOTTLECAP CUFFLINKS:

            I have purchased the scrabble cufflinks, level cufflinks, and hammer/saw cufflinks from Uncommon goods and was very happy with the quality and look. They all look finished and are noticeable but not too much so. My husband and I are homebrewers and HUGE fans of New Belgium so I jumped at the opportunity to buy him these cufflinks. In my unbridled enthusiasm, I did not look closely at the links in the photo. There are tacks in the middle of the caps holding them down. Also, the circle around the cap seems unnecessarily large. Compared to the other cufflinks I have purchased, these seemed needlessly bulky and unfinished. But, if you are looking at them as more of a novelty item and less as a subtle but fun dress attire accessory, you'd be set.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Service and delivery is always impeccable from Uncommon Goods. I'm just waiting for my return to process, but other than that, I love this place!

              My fiance & I love Bristol Brewery and used to frequent when we lived in Colorado Springs, CO. I was shopping for cuff links and wanted a set that were not the run-of-the-mill studs or silver polished square cuffs. When I saw these cuffs I knew they were more than perfect for my Bristol Beer Drinking Man. They look awesome paired with a white, or black dress shirt, and are a great conversation piece. - easy to put on, have a designer quality
