Hammered Brass Cuff

Project Description

Who is this project for? Unisex 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.

What you will need

  • Brass
  • watch part
  • necklace pendant
  • wire
