DIY Noir Neon Cuff Bracelet

This spring is all about Neon!
Smart accessorizing for the warmer weather has never been so much fun.
Today I'll show you a tutorial of Noir inspired Neon Cuff Bracelet, which I thought was right on the trend of sporty chic and elegance.
You will need:
1. Polished Brass Cuff (similar here)
2. Colored rhinestones with flat back (available at Michael's)
3. Neon Utility rope (aka Mason Line) 1/8" wide (available at hardware stores)
4. Couple of toothpicks
5. E-6000 glue
Also, you will need scissors and a lighter.


Step 1.
Tie a knot at the base of the cuff (make sure it's tight), and start wrapping the rope onto the cuff in several layers. I did three layers overlapping each other. Make you keep wrapping the rope very tight.

Step 2.
 Once the base is finished, cut the rope and use lighter to seal the edge. On the inside start pulling the rope's edge diagonally through the layers until the edge is completely hidden. Use a dab of E-6000 to seal.
Step 3. 
Open E-6000 glue and using small batches (as it dries quickly) apply on the bottom of first rhinestone with a toothpick. Attach to the center of cuff. Make sure you're in well ventilated area as the E-6000 fumes are toxic. Repeat steps until a desired pattern is created. Allow to dry for 1 hr. 
And whoa-la, your very own spring accessory is finished.
Step 4.
Enjoy wearing your funky cuff!
