Steampunk Cuff links

I wanted to show these off as I am really pleased with the way they have turned out.
I wanted the little propellers to still turn, so I then had the problem of how to get them to fit onto the cuff link blank so it did not go lop sided, then last night when I had some resin left from a project, I wondered if a dome of this put onto the blank and left to go off a bit before the assembled cogs and propeller were put on, would stick it all down and set it straight.
So I tried it and then left it (actually I went to bed so I would not keep poking it to see if it was dry lol)and this morning it's set solid, everything is set straight and I am dead chuffed.
I wanted to do some of these for my folksy shop but I was worried about their durability but I am happy now so I shall be listing some.
