If you started with a sheet of brass, use tin snips or sheers to cut the brass to the length and width of your choice. Use rollers to bend the brass into the shape of a cuff.
Gather any accessories you wish to add such as beads, hemp, rhinestones, charms, glitter, crystals and/or vintage buttons. You can also use a metal puncher to put holes into the cuff and lace thread, wire and beads through the bracelet. Let your imagination do the work.
