These 14 gauge (.063") Aluminum blanks are perfect for stamping! We use a slightly softer alloy of aluminum to make these, so they are easier to stamp. While these are Unfinished, they do polish beautifully, so they are also great for wire wrapping, texturing, alcohol inks or just a simple and unadorned statement bracelet. These are only available Unfinished and will be shipped flat. You will need to soften the edges ( a file followed up with some grade 0000 steel wool can be used if you don't have a flex shaft or polishing motor) and form them to the bracelet shape; one of our bracelet benders will do the trick nicely!

The perfect start to a quality cuff bracelet is a quality cuff bracelet blank! These are strong and have a good amount of "spring" to them, yet are more lightweight than the standard brass cuff. (something to keep in mind when adding alot of weight in stones/beads.)You may choose round or square corners as well as whether you want them to be rolled into the cuff shape or shipped flat before you add them to the cart.
What can you do with our aluminum cuff bracelet blanks? Just about anything you can imagine! Use them as a perfect base for your bead embroidery, decoupage, metal stamping, painting, wire wrapping, covering with leathers, feathers, fabrics and ribbons. Use a base for polymer clay; you can bake your clay, bracelet blank and all! Patina them and polish with Renaissance Wax, engrave them or just soften the edges with a little steel wool and glue crystals or other embellishments to them. The possibilities are endless, and our blanks are affordable enough to have a great time experimenting with!!
Don't forget, None of our unfinished bracelet blanks should be considered a "finished" product. They are NOT intended to be used "as-is"; they will NOT be pretty and shiny, they WILL have minor scuffs and/or scratches on their surfaces and the edges have not been de-burred. Our unfinished blanks are intended to be covered or finished by you, the Artist. :) If you need a de-burred cuff bracelet blank, please choose our Satin finish or our Polished finish.
