Bohemian Leather Cuff Bracelet

Bohemian Leather Cuff Bracelet

Posted by DecoArt on Mar 16th 2017

Do you like to craft your own jewelry? Michelle here from Michelle’s Party Plan-It and I have a thing for cuff bracelets. When I saw the new DecoArt Patent Leather Paint, I knew I wanted to use it for a Gold Leather Cuff. Truth be told, I wanted a to make a bracelet that looked like a cross between a trendy bohemian style cuff and a Wonder Woman cuff. If you know me and my love for superheroes, you’d guess that I’m loving how it turned out!

Items Needed:

  • DecoArt Patent Leather 2 oz - Gold (DPL11-30)
  • Soft Bristle Brush
  • White Craft Leather
  • Sizzix Big Shot
  • Feather Bracelet Cuff Movers And Shapers/Thinlits

Starting with a soft bristle brush, add a coat of Gold Patent Leather paint to the white leather strip.

Create a Sizzix Sandwich as follows: Movers & Shapers Shuttle, Feather Movers & Shapers Die, the leather with the painted side down and a cutting pad on top. Pass the sandwich through the Big Shot

Now you have a perfectly cut feather cuff that you can leave as is or emboss. I decided to emboss it for extra details.

To emboss the leather you will need to create a Sizzix sandwich as follows: Magnetic Platform, Precision Base Plate, Feather Cuff with the painted side facing up and then the Thilits die on top. To secure it in place, I taped the Thinlit and leather to the Precision Base Plate. Next, add a Cutting Pad on top and pass it through the Big Shot.

Remove the Thinlit from the leather to reveal the wonderfully detailed embossing on the bracelet. Next, add the jewelry findings and you are all set!

Doesn’t it look great? I have sensitive skin and can only wear certain bracelets but this cuff bracelet doesn’t bother me a bit. It’s soft and comfortable. I love the bright gold color which goes with almost anything!

I hope you are inspired to create your own jewelry or refresh a piece of jewelry you already own with DecoArt Patent Leather paint!

Happy Painting!
