Lucky Penny Bracelet Tutorial

Created by: Tiffany White

Designer Tips

  • Find pennies in the years of your choice.
  • Clean the pennies with Penny Brite®.
  • Using a permanent marker or Stamp Enamel, cover the surface of each penny in permanent ink. Allow them to dry.
  • Using a sanding pad or steel wool, remove the the permanent ink, leaving some in the indents, so the design really pops.
  • Attach the pennies and copper buttons to the disk on the bracelets with E-6000 or 2-part epoxy. Allow the bracelet to dry overnight before wearing.
  • For secure gluing tips, also see: Gluing Metal Findings 101 (PDF)
