I am so amazed by all of the large pendants at Michael's. I used them for our Shabby Chic Napkin Rings and now I am making bracelets out of them. I especially love big cuff bracelets, and since Michael's also sells plain cuff bracelets I thought I would add my favorite pendant choices to them to create a nice chunky cuff for under ten dollars. Make them for yourself, or make them to give. Cuff bracelets are nice jewelry gifts since they can be adjusted to fit just about any wrist size.
You will need:
Cuff (Find in the jewelry section at Michael's). You can also find $3 ones under the "Supplies" section on Etsy.
Large Pendant (I found both of mine at Michael's. I love their new enamel line where I found the daisy).
Gorilla Glue Krazy Glue, or JB Weld Glue
Emory board or sand paper (depending on where the bale is this may not be needed).
Refer to our project Shabby Chic Napkin Rings on how to remove bales from your pendants. Click on the link for instruction: http://craftingrebellion.blogspot.com/2012/01/shabby-chic-napkin-rings.html
After you have removed the bale from the pendant apply a liberal amount of Gorilla Glue or J B Weld glue to the top of the cuff and the bottom of the pendant.
*You can glue onto the round base on the top of the cuff or you can pop it off with pliers and glue right onto the band.
Hold in place for a minute or two until set. Prop up.
Let dry 24 hours.
