Men’s Gold Block Bracelet

Men’s Gold Block Bracelet

designed by Scott Pfeiffer

I’ve been wanting to design men’s bracelets for some time and when I saw several for sale on FaceBook, I decided to try my hand at it. Etching glass beads gives them a subtle, masculine look and fashioning these focal cubes with no-bake clay and metallic paints was the perfect combination.
