Gorgeous Gilded Arm Cuff


  • 3-in-1 Jewelry Pliers
  • 14 Gauge Aluminum Wire
  • 28 Gauge Wire
  • Wine Bottle
  • 15 Small Beads (Pictured: Swarovski Beads)
  • Strong Craft Glue (or Clear Nail Polish)


Note: When supply shopping, keep in mind that the higher the number, the thinner the wire. Likewise, the lower the number, the thicker the wire. In this case, the 14 gauge wire was used for the actual cuff, while the 28 gauge wire was used for the accents.



  1. Using the round nosed tips of the pliers, create a loop.

    Step 1
  2. Once the loop is created, the wire will look like the first picture. Take the loop and bend it so that it is flat but in the opposite direction, like the second picture.

    Step 2
  3. Use the wine bottle as a mold for your cuff. Wrap the wire around it a few times. You can do this as little or as many times as you'd like, depending on your arm cuff preference. The arm cuff featured above was wrapped three times, and was about 25 inches worth of wire.

    Step 3

  4. Create a loop at the opposite end, bending it flat as you did in the second step of the project.

    Step 4

  5. Cut a strand of 28 gauge wire.

    Step 5

  6. Tightly wrap the 28 gauge wire around the cuff. String on one bead, and wrap the beaded wire around the cuff. Then string on another bead and do the same. Repeat as desired.

    Step 6

  7. To finish off the bead accents, tightly wrap the 28 gauge around the cuff. Trim the excess. Repeat, according to your preference.

    Step 7

  8.  After wrapping and trimming the 28 gauge wire, add a dab of glue or clear nail polish for extra security.

    Step 8
