DIY: Crystal Cuff

FLORAL_2You could say I’m on a bit of a crystals kick… first this necklace, and now today’s project!  Today’s DIY could almost be called a mini DIY, as it is just so simple and easy to make.  I’ve long ogled cuff bracelets with rough cut jewels by Kelly Wearstler (and Chanel for that matter) and thought I’d try making one.  I’m so happy with how this one turned out and have been wearing it over and over again…  it’s so lovely all by itself, with a pretty summer dress.  (Sometimes its nice to not think about stacking and just opt for one simple cuff, no?)


Materials:  One 1.5″ Cuff Form // One Large Rough Cut Crystal

Six Small Rough Cut Crystals // E6000 Glue


Take the large crystal and coat the back surface in glue.


Firmly press to the cuff and allow to dry.


Add glue to the back of one of your smaller crystals..


…and press on the diagonal.




Continue adding crystals… two more on a diagonal, and then two straight across.


All done!
