Layer Cake Cuff Bracelet

PROJECT B1013
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Beginner
Make a statement with this adorable cuff bracelet featuring ivory and coral lucite chrysanthemums. They almost look like piped frosting!
Instructions
  1. Apply a small amount of E6000 glue to the flat back of a 16mm vintage style opaque light coral lucite chrysanthemum cabochon using a toothpick or a scrap length of craft wire. Center the cabochon both horizontally and vertically onto a 38mm solid brass flat cuff bracelet base and press into place.
  2. Apply a small amount of E6000 glue to another coral cabochon, covering only about two thirds of the back with glue. Place the cabochon directly above the first, with the edges butting up against each other and the top edge of the cabochon hanging over the top edge of the bracelet by a few millimeters. Make sure that the edge that hangs over is the part of the cabochon that does not have glue on it.
  3. Repeat the last step with another coral cabochon, placing it directly below the first, so that you end up with three coral cabochons in a straight line down the middle of the bracelet. See photo for reference.
  4. Next, use the same method to glue three 16mm vintage style opaque ivory lucite chrysanthemum cabochons to the bracelet directly to the left of the three coral cabochons.
  5. Allow the glue several minutes to set up a bit after every couple of rows to avoid shifting.
  6. Continue to glue cabochons to the bracelet in rows of three, alternating colors between rows, until you have 9 rows total, and both sides end with a coral row, about 1/4" from the ends of the bracelet.
  7. Allow the glue to dry thoroughly for at least 24 hours before wearing.
