These NUGOLD CUFF BRACELET BLANKS measure 1/4" x 6". They are cut from thick 16 gauge nugold (red brass) Please choose a quantity IN SETS OF 3 from the drop down menu. Price per cuff decreases as you buy more! Each bracelet is cut straight raw with straight ends. If you'd prefer rounded ends, please send us a convo and we can set up an additional listing for rounding the edges for you.
Nugold is also called red brass. It is a warmer toned base metal than the "regular" yellow brass that most are familiar with. It will work harden which means the more you stamp it, hit it with a mallet or tumble it; the stronger and stiffer it will become.
We suggest using a bracelet bender or bracelet pliers to form the cuff after stamping. If you have neither, try forming it over a rolling pin or drinking glass! To add durability we suggest putting them in a tumbler for added strength. We also suggest using a sanding sponge or file on the ends to slightly round them for a more comfortable fit. You can leave the finish as is, tumble to a shine or sand for a brushed finish. Need a sanding file or sponge?
