About this design:

I'm always on the look-out for bracelet bars, so of course I made some when I was playing in the poly clay. Had to make matching earrings too.


Polymer clay. Recycled green glass freeform (from LB). Howlite chocolate from my stash and cool figure-8 links from the craft store.

    I love your piece with the beach glass because your bracelet bar is just perfect to emulate the surf and bubbles. The figure 8 links give an edgy tone to the other pieces that I really like a lot. And your handmade pieces are the perfect focals for your beautiful designs. Love them all!

    I just love these pieces, Julie! The colors are perfect for your bracelet bars! Like Angela said, you really captured the bubbles and waves in the first one.

    So, are you selling your PC pieces, Julie ? Think there would definitely be a market for these (both the components and the bracelets). Like Angela and Wanda said, you have captured the surf in the first piece – - -

    A fresh & appealing geometric clay design. Love the mix of clean shapes and sleek components, and the color is gorgeous. I agree there’s a market for your clay components.

    I am still Oooing and Aaahing over your pieces….my mouth was hanging open as I kept going back to look at the red flower focal! These are more than fabulous–absolutely fantastic! Your talent is remarkable. I would love to know what store you purchased the figure-8 links too? Love them both! :)

    THANK YOU all for all the wonderful comments!!!

    Please see my comment under the other Gallery listing. I have LOTS of poly-clay pieces created and baked, but not yet colored/gilded/painted.

    I am pretty confident with the “neutral” colored pieces, but I am still experimenting with COLOR!!! I’ve attached pics of pieces I’ve made with color poly-clay. Sometimes I’m happy with the results, sometimes they are just too odd!!!…. ;)
