It really depends on the size of the cuff/item you're making. Typically larger items take longer to make but it's mostly gonna depend on your stringing skills and how fast you can "read" a pattern without messing up or losing your place. I make kandi for sale and larger cuff bracelets (12-14 rows) can take me around an hour where as smaller cuffs (6-9 rows) can take me only a half hour. However, some cuffs have an "easy" pattern (or I've made it so much that I've memorized the pattern like the pokeball cuff) so it only takes me about 15 minutes or so, not counting the time to count out all the beads needed per item (I like to count them out before I make my items). Patterns like Cheetah/leopard print are trickier to make due to the sporadic spots but something like a Mortal Kombat mask is easier because it's symmetrical (even though masks are usually larger than bracelets). Of course the more you make stuff the better/faster you will get! kao smile

Interesting question, I would say depending on the types of cuffs, I think 2or4 sounds like a realistic number for a basic peyote cuff, thats taking everything else into account for on a daily activities. I feel sometimes it takes more time coming up with the perfect color scheme/combination of beads, making sure there are enough beads total, planning it all out is half the battle.

How many can you create in a day?
