Tim Holtz Alterations Gadget Gears Die.
I should also back up a bit and say the inspiration for this whole project came from flipping though the book Hot Connections Jewelry:The Complete Sourcebook of Soldering Techniques and seeing this cool gear necklace but since I'm on a cuff kick that's what I was going to make.
Once the plastic was cut I thought it looked a bit shiny so scuffed it up with a piece of sandpaper.
I thin stitched a pair of "D" rings I had cut off an old pair of sneakers to secure the sides of the gear and have them wrap around my wrist.
The cuff's closure is just a bit of Velcro i sewed onto each end.
