How to Make a Delicate Name-Stamped Metal Cuff for a Tiny Wrist?
by Patrick P.
I need some advice.
I would like to make a stamped sterling bracelet with a name.
The person I am making it for has very small wrists. Much like myself, my family has very small wrists.
My mother is 5 1/4 inch round, sister, 5 1/2, me 5 3/4.
It is not easy to find anything for myself, or them.
I want to stamp a sterling “cuff-like” bracelet with names.
However, I am having trouble finding which gauge of Sterling Sheet I should use.
I do not want a wide band. I am thinking something along the lines of bezel wire, about 1/4 inch wide with 1/8 stamp??
This is what stumps me.
I need a decent width, stamping that I can read a name (of course using sharpie or LOS for highlight) but I don’t want a gauge so thick that it is chunky looking.
I want something that is more delicate and feminine.
If it were a regular, average size wrist circumference, this may not be as difficult. I thought bezel wire because it would be easier, comes in predetermined lengths and widths, and gauge.
I can almost always find a solution from my library stash or Internet, but this time I am stumped. Thanks!
