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.

A few bracelet tutorials:

    I’ve really been in the mood to try and make a few bangles lately – this may be just the push I need! I love #12, especially.

    Me too Lisa! I just love the shape and colors of #10, though I would be thrilled to have anyone of them on my 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?

    I don’t know if this is allowed here, but I wanted to let you all know that we sell aluminum cuff blanks at http://www.beadwork-supplies.com; ALOT of folks are using them with polymer clay! If this is deemed inappropriate to comment, please remove or disregard….not meaning to offend anyone with an advertisement, just genuinely want to help….Cindy

    I have found that baking my polymer clay cuffs on the cuff blanks is very helpful.
