DIY: SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Crystal Cuff + A Sparkling Holiday GIVEAWAY

Glitter N Glue DIY Swarovski Crystal CuffThis is by far the most festive time of the year and to celebrate may I present to you the glitziest Glitter ‘N Glue DIY tutorial of 2012!!!! This crystal cuff is the perfect project to punctuate the end of the year. It’s also the perfect accessory to wear to that special New Year’s Eve party. It’s so major I felt it warranted an afternoon of crafts and cocktails with my friends. YEA PARTY!

Glitter N Glue DIY Swarovski Crystal Cuff MATERIALSMaterials: A Metal Cuff (or Bracelet), Flat Back Crystals from SWAROVSKI CRYSTAL, Glue

Glitter N Glue DIY Swarovski Crystal Cuff  CRYSTALSArtbeads.com has a great selection of flat back crystals by SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS. Click here to shop.

Glitter N Glue DIY Swarovski Crystal Cuff DESIGNFirst, layout your design.

Glitter N Glue DIY Swarovski Crystal Cuff GLUEThen apply a drop of glue to a toothpick and use the toothpick to apply the glue to the back of the crystal. This is the application method I personally like to use. I always make a big ole mess when I apply the glue to the back of the crystal directly from the tube.

Glitter N Glue DIY Swarovski Crystal Cuff  SETAdd the crystals on the cuff. If needed, use a pair of tweezers to carefully place the crystals.

Glitter N Glue DIY Swarovski Crystal Cuff DETAILYour design may change as you continue to apply your crystals, but my suggestion is to start with the center crystal and work your way out. At the end of the day the design is totally up to you. Have fun with it and always remember the more bling the better!!

    Hi – What are those yellow rings on someone’s finger in the first picture?

    January 7, 2013 at 12:45 pm

    • My friend Laurie said they were by Nior Jewelry. :-)

      January 7, 2013 at 10:03 pm

      • Monique

        Thanks. I checked out the site and it must be from a previous collection as I can’t find anything that resembles the yellow rings in the picture.
