Follow the step by step instructions below to create your own Bold Statement Cuff
With a 12 inch ruler, lay your clasp, your center piece and your 3 pieces of leather out.
Follow this guide for sizing:
- For a 7 inch bracelet you need to be at 8.5 inches.
- For a 7.5 inch bracelet you need to be at 9 inches.
- For a 8 inch bracelet you need to be at 9.5 inches.
Mark your leather and cut excess off all three pieces.
*Make sure you've inserted your leather into the center piece for accurate sizing.*
Fold each of your pieces of leather in half and cut in the center (try to be as accurate as possible to make things easier later) creating 6 pieces of equal size leather.*We use scissors here, but you can use any cutting tool you have on hand that will make a precise cut*
Put your bracelet together WITHOUT using Super New Glue.
*When working with glue it is always important to measure twice and glue once, because there usually isn't room for mistakes once the glue comes into play. *
Lay your bracelet out and measure. Determine if you need to make any adjustments in sizing.
*If you need adjustments, determine the amount and divide by 2. Cut this amount off of each side of leather. For example if you need to cut off 1/2 inch, then cut 1/4 inch off each piece of leather (all 6)*
Place 5 drops of Super New Glue along one of the trenches in the center piece.
Roll the center piece around to evenly apply the glue.
Place all three pieces of leather into the trench and firmly
Push them up into place, the ends should all line up. Allow to dry 15 minutes.
Now Repeat on the other side
*Be sure that you leather is in the proper order. It would be really awful if the leather didn't match on each side.*
Place 5 drops of Super NEW Glue along the trench of 1 side of your clasp. Roll the clasp around to apply glue evenly. Place all three pieces of leather into the trench and firmly push them up into place, the ends should all line up. Allow to dry 15 minutes.
*Make sure your clasp is facing the correct way*
Now Repeat for the other half off your clasp
