These simple cuffs make for great gifts and use up a thread and beads you have lingering in your craft room. You can grab almost any thread or wire and some beads and turn it into a great cuff. I love mixing crafts so by adding a touch of beading on the edge of the cuff it just steps up the polished look slightly. Anyway you decide to cook up your own, I know they will look great.
