Fall Leaf Cuff Bracelet

Fall leaf cuff bracelet made of Sculpey polymer clay.

Autumn makes you want to wear the colors of leaves. The first cuff bracelet I made out of polymer clay is the leaf bracelet I made out of shades of brown, gold, orange and green.  I started by making a Skinner blend of gold and green.  I covered one side of an aluminum cuff bracelet blank.  Then I whipped up some leaf canes and slice a few pieces off.  Using a contrasting color, I made an organic square shape to back each leaf.  Next I gently pressed them into the bracelet.  Bake, Cool.  Polish a bit.  Great fall bracelet.

The biggest craft I do in the fall, however, is making creative scarecrows. My sister and I work together to come up with outrageous scarecrow ideas.  Check out our prize-winning Halloween scarecrows.

 

 

Handmade Jewelry Makes Best Gift

Bead, pearl, crystal necklace and earring set I made my friend for her birthday.

Dori and I became best friends in 7th grade. Unfortunately, we don’t see each other often anymore, but I wanted to make her jewelry for a milestone birthday. Here’s some pics of the design made of beads, pearls and crystals with copper and rose gold findings.  The necklace is long, and you can wear it two ways. As seen in the photo above,  you can wear it with the charm dangling.  You can also remove the charms and one section of the necklace to make a simpler strand.

Here’s some more pics to show the design.necklace100bwebnecklacecharm105web

Did you know Amazon has tons of jewelry making supplies? Sometimes they have better prices that Michaels or Joanns. They definitely have a wider selection.
