Step-by-Step Tutorial: Polymer Clay Bezel & FREE Download

This fun technique goes perfectly with our My Favorite Things design theme… being that it is one of my absolute favorite things to do right now! I LOVE creating impressions in polymer clay with Vintaj Arte Metal & Natural Brass components. Any of our hollow-back pieces are the perfect piece for creating these wonderful little charms & pendants!

This bracelet features a fun collection of some of my favorite things, mostly Nature inspired… flowers, leaves, dragonflies, butterflies, birds, trees, nests, stars, kitties, keys, buttons and more! Pewter Kitty Comfort & Nest charm are from Green Girl Studios. The small brass bird by the nest is a charm from TierraCast ~ mixed metals, another favorite of mine! The long silk cord is wrapped four times to create the length of a standard bracelet. The key hole decorivet is securing all the strand, with a loop on the opposite side to create a button closure. The opposite end of the silks are secured with a 9mm crimp end, and a vintage button was attached to work as the clasp. A briolette and a charm hang from the tassels. You can also create this fun charm bracelet, simply by clustering your favorite pieces from Vintaj chain.

Happy Designing!

    I love the color of the cord… great for spring. I am thinking on the lines of an old shoe buckle I have for a clasp… or maybe even a shoe clip… I am going to go dig through my treasures.
