In my opinion, when it comes to jewelry, more is always better. I love oversize, statement necklaces, bracelets, and rings and view each piece more as wearable art than as little accessories. I even have all the amazing necklaces I have collected over the years displayed in the center of a gigantic gold frame on my bedroom wall.
This week, I’m so excited to show you guys how I made this crystal metal cuff so you can make your own too!
This DIY is so crazy-simple you’ll be done and wearing it in no time. Plus, have you seen how much crystal jewelry is selling for lately? With this week’s accessory DIY, you’ll be saving some serious money while also crafting a unique piece of crystal jewelry just for you.
Before we can begin, you’ll need just a few materials. Here’s what I used for this project and you can buy any of them on Amazon by clicking the affiliate links below:
If you are a regular crafter / maker like me, you’ll need to pull some E6000 glue, a metal cuff blank, and some crystal stones from your stash. 😉
The steps to make this cuff are really so simple I almost feel silly posting a DIY, but alas, here we go…..
In a well-ventilated room, apply some E6000 glue to the spaces you’d like the stones to be. This glue is so tough and so strong, it will hold your stones and jewelry in place better than a lot of the pieces you’ll find in the mall.
After applying your stones, let the glue set overnight before wearing your new cuff. If the crystals are slipping as the glue dries, just place something in front of them to hold the stones temporarily in place.
Ta da! You are done! Slip on your new, custom bracelet and buy an extra bottle of wine with the money you saved.
