Bracelet for a Nurse

When I showed my first handmade bracelet to the staff on my ward, several nurses requested I make one for them. It took me severl weeks to get this one finished, and so far this one nurse is the only one who’s given me specific directions on what to make for her.

Bracelet for a Nurse

The beads are made of two colors of polymer clay selected by the nurse from my stash. They are ultramarine Fimo Classic and pastel mint Fimo Effect. The mint may look a bit blueish and I at one point thought I might’ve confused it with the blue ice quartz. As with another bracelet I’ve previously posted, I rolled the two colors of clay into a jelly roll. I really need to learn to make canes, but will get to that later. I got very uneven beads from my first try so made some more and chose the best I had. They’re still each more different than the ones on the other polymer clay bracelet I’ve made, but they’re okay. As usual, I strung the beads onto elastic wire. I fear the bracelet is a little too tigght, but we’ll see. Forgot to take it back to the ward when my husband had photographed it, so the nurse will need to wait to get it.

Necklace for My Sister

I’ve not made much jewelry lately. In fact, this piece is over a month old, but I never got down to posting it. It is intended as a Christmas present for my sister, and I want to make another one (with different beads, but I’ve yet to decide what I want besides rose quartz) for my mother.

Necklace

The green beads are aventurine and the brown ones are jasper. I didn’t know there’s brown jasper until I foudn these. I bought them at a lovely shop that sells all kinds of gemstone beads. I can’t remember what the dolphin is made of. Since my husband photographed it, I don’t know what side of the dolphin is visible. It is blue on one side and metallic (I’m thinking silver) on the other.
