Bangles, Cuffs & Dangles

The bigger the bracelet the better this season. With polymer clay you can add volume without weight. Here is a collection of some bracelets from flickr to get your creative gears turning.

Polymer clay can stand on it’s own as a bangle, in tiles for a large cuff, pair up with other beads, as a focal or dangles.  You can’t go wrong with a little polymer around the wrist.

    I made a cuff & it broke right away. I don’t c how these cuff bracelets can b sturdy enough 2 wear everyday. I used Premo too, soooooo. It was at least 1/4″ thick, Maybe I need 2 put it on a metal base. What cha think?
