This rustic cuff bracelet tutorial is an easy two-part project.

Here in Part 1, we’ll make a simple, comfortable cuff bracelet from brass or copper:

Then, in Part 2, we’ll use a super-easy homemade patina to give our bracelet metal a fascinatingly rustic look:

Supplies:

How to Make a Rustic Cuff Bracelet:

First, get out your piece of sheet metal. I’m using copper for this tutorial:

Copper sheet

Use your ruler and super-fine Sharpie pen to mark your bracelet measurements on your metal sheet:

Measuring for rustic cuff bracelet

Use your jeweler’s saw or tin snips to cut out your bracelet metal:

Cutting copper sheet with tin snips

Your bracelet should now look like this:

Copper for rustic cuff bracelet

We don’t want sharp corners on the finished bracelet, so now use your jeweler’s saw or tin snips to cut a smooth, rounded corner on each of the four corners of your bracelet:

Cut rounded corners

Use a small piece of your #0000 steel wool to “sand” and smooth every edge and corner of your bracelet.

When you’re done, each edge should feel smooth and rounded, with nothing to snag or cut your skin:

Smooth the metal edges with steel wool

Now wrap your bracelet around your mandrel (or whatever you’re using to shape your bracelet).

When your metal is wrapped tightly around the mandrel, there should be a small gap between the two ends (so you’ll be able to put the finished bracelet on your wrist):

Forming the copper bracelet

Holding your bracelet metal tightly around the mandrel, use your hammer to bang the metal all over, to work-harden it into a nice C-shape:

Hammering the copper bracelet on the mandrel

Be sure to hammer both ends into a nice curve too:

Hammer the ends of the copper bracelet

When you’ve finished hammering your metal into a nice sturdy bracelet, it should look like this:

. . . and this:

Now let’s go on to Part 2 – Easy Patina Finishes for Copper and Brass, where we’ll give our new cuff bracelet a cool, rustic look that’s something like this:

  1. OH. MY. GOSH. A vitamin bottle!! Of course! You’re a genius. OK…you’re at least more clever than me. LOL I’m going to fill my empty vitamin bottle with sand to give it some weight and make it more solid so I can hammer on it.

    I can’t wait to try this.

  2. Hey, that’s a great idea to fill it with sand! I hadn’t thought of that. I did think about the vitamins being removed first, though.
