Retired - The Gilded Gatsby Cuff

PROJECT B6007
Designer: Suki Song
Skill Level: Intermediate
This gold and black cuff is perfect for a fancy night out, or for a fun Gatsby themed party.
Instructions
You will need tweezers for this project. This is not a difficult project, but it takes patience and precision. Prepare your work area for lots of glue use- it could get sticky! This project refers a lot to the photos provided. Pay close attention and detail to the images and use them as a guideline if you would like to follow my design. However, feel free to deviate from the images and create your own design!
  1. To begin, squeeze a small drop of E6000 onto your cuff. I like to start at the one end of the bracelet and work my way to the other end. Add on bead by bead with tweezers, or any pointed object narrow enough to catch the hole of the Miyuki beads. Work with 1 cm x 1 cm squares at a time. This will ensure the most uniform look.
  2. After covering the entire cuff with beads, allow it to dry for at least 24 hours.
  3. After you're finished, go back and pull out any excess glue strings using tweezers.
  4. You're done!
