Blue Tree Glue-In Cuff Bracelet

Designer Tip: Add the jump ring to the hole at one end of the cuff. The bracelet blanks have rounded corners and the ends are at a slight angle. Using sharp scissors or flush cutters, trim one end of the leather to fit the bangle. Glue the end in with Super New Glue and use tape or wire to hold the leather in place while drying. Spread a small amount of E-6000 on the bracelet blank starting from the glued portion to about inch away from the other end. Press leather in place and trim other end to fit in bangle. Apply Super New Glue to the end of bangle and press leather in place, again using tape of wire to hold the leather while the glue is drying. Use a nail file if desired to smooth end of leather; use a light blue marker to color the end as well. If the Super New Glue does not hold, allow it to dry completely and reapply. The rationale for using the E-6000 everywhere but the ends is that is it bonds with some elasticity and will allow the bangle to be opened and closed without cracking. Super New Glue tends to be a bit more brittle when it is dry, and that is why we don't recommend it for the bendable part of the cuff, but will hold the ends strongly. Add the charm onto the jump ring.Helpful Video Tutorial:Click here to Watch Jump Rings 101 Basic Techniques for Jewelry Making
