These cuffs are .040 gauge aluminum with a Gold anodized coating applied to both sides of them. The outside has a protective plastic sheeting attached that must be removed before use. (just peel off, super easy) These are a slightly thicker/heavier weight of aluminum than our regular blanks, but by no means *heavy*; still a very comfortable weight! A word about the gold finish; this is not a run of the mill painted on color....it is a VERY tough coating that will NOT flake or peel off!
These blanks are 1/2" x 6" (.5" x 6") and are made from sturdy .040 anodized aluminum.
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. 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.
