Year of Clay – Bangle

brown polymer clay bangleI’ve always admired the clay bangles I’ve seen. Sarah Shriver makes wonderful bangles. Keith Brown applies his spectacular finishing to his bangles.

For me, it was a matter of construction. I wanted something fast and easy. That could go together in one simple session, if need be. And that was solid core with no moving parts. I have broken more prototypes than I care to think of.

So here’s one that is solid core, didn’t break, sanded and finished up. It’ll be a gift for my Mom so I’ve snapped a picture before it goes to it’s new (and more appreciative) home.

The bangle also showcases some of my recent canework and uses a brown base since the current fashion trend (probably ending since I noticed it) seems to call for browns and turquoises and creams.

  2. That is wonderful. The shape is excellent. I have been working on one as well and I still can’t get it the way I want. Pratice, pratice, pratice I guess lol. I bet your Mom will love it..
