I have to give credit for this project to my daughter-in-law Joanna Lassak. We were looking through some of my past projects when she suggested making a wrist cuff with Sakura Hobby Craft Crystal Lacquer.
To begin I poured a band of clear crystal lacquer on a Teflon craft mat.
Next I sprinkled the base of lacquer with three colors of ultrafine glitter. I covered a second base of crystal lacquer with microbeads.
The microbeads weren’t successful. They were too heavy and sank into the lacquer.
I set the bands aside to dry overnight. The microbead band was a total failure :(, but I was pleased with the glitter band. I used a craft knife and straight edge to trim the sides of the band.
Next, I stamped the band with black Staz-On ink.
I rounded each end of the band for a more finished look and pierced small hole in each end with a Crop-a-dile. Then I used the Crop-a-dile to set a rivet in each of the holes. I used a black velvet brad for the closure.
The finished wrist cuff is a glitzy addition to my jewelry collection. Check out the 3-D Crystal Lacquer blog for more project ideas.
