Or you could ask Linda to buy you a pair of cufflinks as a present (if you can find them).
Like the ones shown here.

 :) It sounds as if they're much more Mark Hill's style than yours Keith.

However, a good while ago, I found a pair of earrings with glass cabochons. Not Caithness, but Bohemian, they had a very Monart-like colourway, with blobs of a deep bluey-grass green (Monart green) and aventurine, which I had made into cufflinks for my smart, shirt-wearing brother.
Some of us simply cannot do "smart" and should never be forced to try.

Me too. ;D
No point ever, in wearing something that needs ironed. It crumples in despair before I even get it on.  ::)

Christine told me about them.  ;D
Christine knows lots of interesting and strange stuff - more than just about glass. :)

An iron is a glass-making tool used on a golf course.

It's a bit like the pontil that is left on the base of much American-made glass.
