TUTORIAL - Liquid Polymer Clay Gauze Fiber Bangle Bracelet DIY

Create a unique wrapped bangle bracelet from liquid polymer clay and inexpensive gauze fabric. The resulting piece will be light and flexible, comfortable to wear.

The variety of color combinations will be limited only by your imagination! By combining base colors for the fabric itself, then applying subtle mica-tinted layers, you will create an endless array of wristwear for yourself or others.

This bracelet will be "bangle" style, that is - closed, and will slip on over your fingers.

This tutorial is considered an INTERMEDIATE LEVEL project, and is 11 pages long, with 27 steps and over 50 unique demonstrative photos.

Basic beading/jewelry making skills are assumed for the OPTIONAL embellishment portion.

PDF file format. Tutorial will be emailed within 24-48 hours after completion of checkout and payment to the email listed on your order.

Adobe or other compatible reader required. ENGLISH language ONLY.

Please convo me if you have any questions prior to purchasing this tutorial.

Additional policies

BRACELET CUFFS (with open back) are rigid and intentionally snug. Because of the bold nature my designs, I've found from personal experience that a loose fit can rotate and slip off if the opening is too wide.

*** PUTTING ON A CUFF: Slip cuff gently onto the SIDE of your wrist, at the THINNEST PART, then rotate into normal wearing position. Reverse procedure to remove.***

Dimensions are given for the piece and most can be sized (by me) to some extent. Please let me know if you have an exceptionally small wrist, or conversely, prefer a larger cuff opening. (This does not apply to FIBER/GAUZE cuffs, which are flexible.)
