Well wishes are stamped on this holiday-inspired cuff using metal punches by Beadsmith and ImpressArt. Swarovski Crystal rhinestones add festive bling to the bracelet, complementing Vintaj Emerald Green patina accents.
You will need paper towels and a toothpick to complete this project.
- Please watch the video: How to Make a Metal Stamped Cuff Bracelet. Using what you have learned in the video, center your letters and punch "glad tidings" at the center of your metal bracelet cuff, with a sun symbol appearing between the two words (see photo for reference). Also use the sun symbol punch to embellish the sides of the cuff as you choose.
- To color the impressions of your cuff: Please watch this video on how to add vintaj patina to metal stamping. Using the technique shown in the video, apply the desired amount of Emerald Green patina to your cuff and remove the excess with a paper towel.
- To form your cuff, take the bracelet bending pliers and use the technique shown in the video in step one to bend the cuff to your desired size and shape.
- To attach your rhinestones: Using a toothpick, apply a small amount of E6000 glue to the cuff where you want to position your crystal. Set the rhinestone firmly into the glue. Repeat this step to add your desired number of rhinestones in the placement of your choice. Allow glue to dry for at least one hour.
- Enjoy your bracelet!
