Modify some plastic frames by cutting off the tops and gluing the lenses in the bottom piece, then make the bands with snaps to go around your arm

with a vinyl or gold fabric and heavy interfacing, padded interfacing and not stiff interfacing.... the gems can be made out of clay and then colored by painting them with the proper color nail enamel...

hope this helps

I know a good trick for the metal armbands, get some foam sheets (you can get them at a craft store), then use puffy paint (like people used on shirts years ago), to paint the details. Spraypaint the whole thing gold afterwards and glue on the gems/whatever.

You'll probably need to punch holes in the bands and lace them up under your arms. The foam stays flexible, and really looks like armor/jewelry.
