I have a rookie question of how to weave a handcuff charm to key fob?

I have a picture below of my first attempt but it does not look very good to me.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Try some split rings (from hobby shop). They will allow the full cuffs to show and be a little easier to straighten the cuffs with. You will want a pair of split ring pliers because those little rings are a pain to split without the pliers.

Here's an example of a Saints bracelet that I did.

I see what you did there, showing off a Saints bracelet to a Bears fan.

That is a good idea where did you get the charm and cuffs?
I think the cuffs look good just the way they are.

Also you can try some Jump Rings. I just bought some 6mm jump rings yesterday from a local craft supply store.

I found some 6mm snap rings at Hobby Lobby and they work very well.

However the snap ring tool is a bit of a mystery with these small snap rings. But I think I got it figured out, it just opens them enough to get the cuff through.

The cuffs lay flat with out any rough egdes sticking up.

I'll post pics later.

Found the cuffs on Esty.

Glad you figured it out.
