PROJECT B1097
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Intermediate
This vibrant cuff bracelet is like having a party on your wrist! It's 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 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.
  3. Paint the outside of the cuff with Vintaj patina in ruby. 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 ruby 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 18 x 25mm amethyst vintage flatback faceted oval and carefully place it onto the center of your cuff bracelet.
  7. Glue two 10mm sapphire faceted square flatbacks onto the cuff to one side of the amethyst oval. These should sit along the edge of the oval and separate as they go outwards. Before the glue sets, glue a 5mm emerald round faceted flatback into the space between the ends of the sapphire flatbacks. Allow the glue to set, then repeat on the other side of the amethyst oval flatback. Allow the glue to set.
  8. Glue a 5mm emerald faceted round flatback above and below the sapphire squares.
  9. Allow of the glue to dry thoroughly before wearing.
