Hi. I'm new here.
Iíve wanted to make my own studded wristcuff instead of buying one, because all I seem to see are black or hot pink.  I wanted to make something less common.
The internet seems to lack good instructions, so after fantasizing and finally getting off my ass, I decided to make a move.
Here is a wristband that wraps round my wrist twice.  It reminds me of those fancy Swatch watches.  I bought the studs at http://www.studsandspikes.com.

Everything you need you can find at a craft store or around your house, save the studs.
Doubles as a collar.

Instructions:
Youíll need ñ
Studs (conical, pyramid, it doesnít matter)
Sharpie
Craft knife or box cutter
Ruler
Skinny belt or a strip of vinyl/leather that is slightly wider than the width of your studs.
4-piece Snap fasteners and something to apply them with
Hammer
Stud awl or regular Awl
Masking tape
Needle nose pliers
<p>
1.İİİMeasure your wrist loosely, multiply by two and add a little more than an inch.  This number is the length of your band.
2.İİİMeasure 2.5-3î from both ends of your band.  Mark it.  
3.İİİDepending on how many studs you want, measure and mark where youíll want the studs to go.
4.İİİWrap masking tape round one side of your pliers. This will prevent it from scratching the stud.
5.İİİ<b>If you have a stud awl</b>, punch a slit wherever you made a mark.  Insert studs and clamp shut with pliers.
OR
6.İİİ<b>If you have no stud awl</b>, press a stud into the band wherever you made a mark.  Take your knife and press into the band so youíve made a slit.  Insert studs and clamp shut with pliers.
7.İİİKeep doing this until youíre done setting the studs. Then make a mark where you want the snap fasteners to go.
8.İİİFollow the instructions of the snap fastener package to apply them.  For thicker materials like leather, I would use a craft knife to cut out a hole smaller than the size of the fastener parts so they can be more easily hammered into the band.
9.İİİYouíre done.  The end.
