Two Bracelets

Lately I’ve been enjoying polymer clay and particularly have been making beads out of it. I also have bought a number of jewelry-making supplies, such as gemstone and glass beads, charms and wire. Here are my first two bracelets.

This one my husband nicknaemd the Ado The Hague bracelet after a Dutch football club. I think the football club’s colors are yellow and green, while the bracelet truly has golden glitters in it, but I’m not sure that it shows on the picture. I used green and golden glitter Fimo Effect and rolled two rolls into what I believe to be a jelly roll. Then I cut beads out of that, then had them lie around forever after baking before I strung them together on elastic wire. I am soon going to make a similar one in different colors for a nurse here.

This one got nicknamed the Christmass bracelet for its green stars. They are made out of turquoise I believe. The golden beads are glass beads. I strung these onto a metal wire and attached the clasp. I got some help with that bit, but must say I can do it mostly independently now.
