The weather is getting warmer and the sleeves are getting shorter. Exposed wrists are in desperate need of jewelry – some new, some old and some handmade. This season, I’m all about making these braided brass cuffs, inspired by Aurélie Bidermann’s Copacabana bracelet. The most complicated step to this tutorial is drilling holes through the cuff but if you’ve got a steady hand and a tiny drill bit, you’ll be churning these out before you know it.
