What are you most proud of? These cuffs stay "top up" on your arm and are very comfy. The inside is smooth and they are light weight. They have gotten great reactions at class and shows.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you are a bit apprehensive of working with metal this is a great first project. If you want you can use metal shears rather than the saw. If you use shears you will need to use the large side of your chasing hammer to flatten the corners of the metal prior to texturizing it. Cutting with shears causes the metal to bend slightly. Have fun and pound away then add a necklace pendant, donut, or wired beads. You can really change the look of this by changing the embellishments. I go steam punk but it can also go very girly with a thinner band and pretty beads and fine wire wrapping.

Thanks so much. I love working with metal. It really widens the scope of your jewelry making. This sold on Etsy which always makes me happy.

I love this cuff and am looking forward to beginning smithing once I have the place to do it and the tools. Hopefully that will be in the next few months. Love your ideas and your excellent creativity.
