I’m still in that copper-obsessed phase, and it shows no signs of slowing down any time soon. I recently followed this brass necklace DIY, and made my own out of copper (here). So I decided to create a few cuff bracelets using the same type of tubing. It’s the easiest process and produces a wonderful result. See how I did it below.
What you need:
- 1/4′ Copper tubing
- Tube cutter
- Measuring tape
- Glass (or anything the diameter of your wrist)
Step 1: Measure the diameter of your wrist or desired size of your bracelet. Mark with marker.
Step 2: Cut tubing using the tube cutter. I cut mine at 6 inches.
Step 3: Wrap tubing around your glass and press firmly to bend. Keep bending until you have your desired shape. If edges are rough, you can use sandpaper to smooth it.
