Second Skin Leather Metal Cuffs
I was invited to take part in an amazing blog hop where the primary focus was my fave subject: Jewelry Cuffs. Each designer was given a metal cuff, a package of second skin leather ( I received a red tilapia fish leather) & leather scissors, all from John Bead Suppliers.
I just loved this project idea so much, I became overly excited and couldn't decide on what to make as a permanent design for my cuff, so I decided to make mine inter-changeable using removable shoe clips, clip on earrings and pins, which I could customize for any look before I went out, many of the jewelry pieces I used were vintage or recycled from my jewelry drawer.
-Second Skin Tilapia Fish Leather, Metal Complex
-Metal Cuff, Metal Complex
-Leather Scissors, Dazzle It
-Jewelry Clips: Shoe Clips, Clip Earrings, or Pins
1.Coat your metal cuff with a tacky all purpose glue of choice.
2.Cover your glued cuff w/second skin tilapia fish leather, press tightly,
and fold over any excess leather underneath the cuff, let dry.
3.Choose the clips of choice to match your outfit and you are ready for a night out on the town.
-Mix the leathers for various looks.
-Add medallions, charms or metal pieces to your cuff.
-Turn into a watch, by attaching a thin rimmed watch part to your cuff.
-Line w/rhinestone strands or studs.
-Layer w/friendship bracelet strands
