I have commissioned some lovely cufflinks that I would like to sell on Ebay but because of their bizarre selling rules I need to sell 29 other jewellery items. I can't afford to (and can't wait and don't have ideas ) commission 29 other items so...

Scratched my head a bit and had the brain wave of lego cufflinks. I bought some for DH last year, very cheap just a bit of lego stuck on a cufflink backing but effective and I can't break the bond between lego and silver plate backing. I can come up with 29 colour combinations so which will allow me to sell on Amazon but can I get the lego and backing to stay stuck? NO!

I googled the best adhesive and came up with E6000. I've applied as per instructions but it isn't setting properly - after 2 days I can easily pull parts apart and even peel the glue off and roll it in a little ball.

Any help appreciated !

Have you tried 2 part epoxy? Or there's something called Jeweller's Cement which is supposed to be brilliant...

Haven't tried epoxy, just wanted little tube of something quick and easy to make up small batches. Have just ordered the Jeweller's cement - thank you! thanks
