Retired - Bat Manor Cuff

PROJECT B1101
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Intermediate
This pretty cuff has a classic feel with a gothic edge to it. It features a long bat stamping curved to fit a distressed brass cuff.
Instructions
If you want to bend your cuff to adjust the size, you'll want to do it first before you shape your bat.
  1. Using the oval bracelet mandrel, gently bend and shape your antique silver plated long bat stamping to fit the shape of a solid brass flat cuff bracelet. Try to match the shape as closely as possible so that the bat stamping slides neatly onto the front of the cuff.
  2. Put the stamping aside for now, and place the cuff onto the heating tripod. Very carefully use the micro torch on the cuff, keeping the flame moving around the cuff, until the color goes darker. Allow the cuff to cool entirely before you try to touch it.
  3. Buff the cooled cuff with a Vintaj relief block until you are happy with the finish.
  4. Slide your bat stamping onto the cuff. Move it slightly to one side and apply some E6000 glue to the spots where the bat will sit in the center of the cuff. Put enough glue to stick, but not too much. Then slide the bat into place in the center and wipe away any excess glue.
  5. Allow the glue to dry thoroughly before wearing.
