Retired - Carnival Cuff in Blue

PROJECT B1096
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Intermediate
This vibrant cuff bracelet is like having a party on your wrist! Its colorful geometric look will be the perfect compliment for your favorite summer look.
Instructions
You will also need a paint brush for this project.
  1. If you would like to bend your cuff to resize it, make sure you do so before you begin. Resizing the cuff after you're finished could damage the patina or displace the rhinestones.
  2. Paint the inner side of a 1.5" brass flat cuff bracelet base with Vintaj patina in amethyst. Use several coats, letting it dry between coats, until you have a nice solid color. Make sure you wash your brush out after each coat. Allow to dry.
  3. Paint the outside of the cuff with Vintaj patina in cobalt. Use several coats, letting it dry between coats, until you have a nice solid color. Make sure you wash your brush out after each coat. Allow to dry.
  4. Carefully paint the edges with cobalt patina and allow to dry.
  5. For details on the placement of your flatbacks, please refer to the photographs.
  6. Place some E6000 glue onto the back of a 25mm fuchsia vintage flatback faceted square and carefully place it onto the center of your cuff bracelet. The sides of the flatback will sit up off the cuff a bit, this is fine, just keep the spaces even on both sides. Allow the glue to set.
  7. Glue a 10mm sapphire faceted square flatback onto the cuff to either side of the fuchsia square. Allow the glue to set.
  8. Glue a 9mm amethyst faceted round flatback to either side of the sapphire squares. Allow the glue to set.
  9. Glue a 5mm emerald faceted round flatback above and below each sapphire square.
  10. Allow of the glue to dry thoroughly before wearing.
