Create perfectly curved cuff bracelets in just a few seconds with this handy bending tool.

Note: Do any stamping or metalworking to the metal/wire prior to forming the cuff.
STEP 1
Cut your desired length of metal sheet or wire and place one end of the strip into the notch on the tool.
STEP 2
Using your hand, bend metal around the curved arch on first side of the tool.
STEP 3

Repeat at the other end.

Note: Either hold the flat end of tool in your hand or place it in a bench vise to free up both hands during forming. Recommended for use with 18- to 26-gauge gold, sterling silver, brass, aluminum and copper metals.
