Introduction: Fixing a Bracelet With Sugru

Picture of Fixing a Bracelet With Sugru

Sugru is a self-setting rubber for fixing, modifying and improving stuff.  It molds like play-dough, bonds to almost anything and turns into a strong, flexible silicone rubber overnight.  It comes in several colors, and is great for all sorts of things.  Let's fix a weak spot on a bracelet.

Supplies-
Sugru in the desired colors (You can mix colors if you like!)
Weak or broken bracelet

Step 1: Open the Sugru

The Sugru comes in little metallic packets to help keep it fresh.  There's dotted lines on each packet showing where to cut the packet open.  Go ahead and cut open these three sides, peel the packet open, and scrape the sugru out.

Step 2: Knead and Mix the Sugru

Knead it up for about 30 seconds to get it activated.  This is a good time to mix up different colors!  Your working time with Sugru is only about 30 minutes, so don't take too long.

Step 3: Form the Sugru and Let It Cure

Mold the Sugru around the bracelet.  Let it sit for 12 hours, and your bracelet is ready to go again!
