Bling it On

by: Malliga Nathan

Bling it on, Bang the Gong, Put it On!

It's so sparkly I could die!

Any of the rhinestone cup chains colours would look fabulous (and we have more coming). Rough up the surface of the metal - both the brass cuff and the back of the cup chain, to ensure adhesion. You could choose a narrower cuff base too if you wanted something more restrained (but why???) ;-)

Pre measure and cut the cup chain. (4 inch segments works!)

Apply the glue to the back of the cup chain (a toothpick is a useful tool), and set into place on the cuff. Use a few clothes pegs if necessary to hold the chain in place. (Although they will probably just stay in place.)

Wait for the glue to cure - and be fabulous!

Note - originally, we listed this as the 2 inch cuff and 26 inches of chain. Malliga has since gotten back to me with the actual quantities - which is the 1.5 inch cuff and 25 inches of chain. If you want to make the wider cuff - allow for more chain.
