Polymer Clay Jewelry: Nature's Leaf Polyclay Bracelet

by Janine Gerade
(Holliston, MA)

I work with polymer clay. I have been working with it for quite some time.

I don't have too much free time on my hands anymore (I have a little one and 2 part-time jobs) so I have to schedule a clay night with myself.

So one clay night I had to think about what kind of beads to make.

I love nature, so I was inspired to make a cane pattern of the budding leaves out on the branches.
This bracelet was born.

The extra little dangle on the side is just a little personal touch. I like to do that sometimes. Someday I will get metal stamped tags with my logo in it's place, but for now it works just fine.

I am trying not to feel guilty using plated toggles but since gold is currently hovering around $1,000 and oz., I shouldn't beat myself up too much right? The bracelet would probably cost an extra $40-$60 just for the clasp (retail that is), so instead I used plated and frankly the color is great and there hasn't been any wear.

This is one of those pieces I know I will be somewhat sad to sell since I have a slight attachment to it:)
