How to Make a Watercolor Cuff Using Armature Wire

By on Wednesday, March 11, 2015 4 Comments

Some time ago, I found some excellent water color earrings tutorials.  Making a watercolor bracelet/cuff is definitely more ambitious!  Check out this excellent video tutorial by Ross Barbera who shows us how to do so using armature wire ie a wire frame.


He has numerous tips on how to manage thick paper and more importantly how to securely attach the paper to the armature wire and to seal everything. He is meticulous about finishing the edges. So it is well worth the watch right to the end.

Not into water colors? Consider using his tips for paper jewelry.

If a cuff is way to much, how about trying out the basic technique with earrings?
