what 's the difference between 'bangle' and 'cuff' style??

to me this is a bangle.....

this is a cuff...

im not sure how right my thinking is though.....

**edit** i have just googled this and according to 'lovetoknow' the differance between and cuff and a bangle is ...'A cuff bracelet is an oval shaped rigid or semi rigid bracelet with an opening that allows it to slide onto the side of the wrist instead of over the hand. Some cuff bracelets are completely closed but have a hinged, or other type of closure, that opens so the bracelet can be slid onto the side of the wrist. The shaping of the cuff bracelet allows it to sit snuggly against the wrist. A bangle bracelet is rigid and is put on by sliding it over the hand'....

WHOA - that's gorgeous! maybe you can put a few coats of a matte finish on to protect from scratches?

i've only tried the fimo gloss varnish (they may be better brands which dont do this) but i've found that once scratched the varnish looks worse than the polymerclay Undecided
the varnish starts to peel off at the site of the scratch and adding another coat of varnish over the top leaves 'tide' marks unless you varnish the entire thing again Undecided
 small scratches arnt too noticeable but a big gouge or deep scratch is. very. the bangle style bracelets seem more prone to scratches (i guess because they stick out more)  but unless its a big one the scratches them selves dont seem as noticeable on that style of bangle, the cuff bracelets dont seem to get scratched as easily but because the visible surface is much larger the marks seem more noticeable.

your bangles are excellent!!  do pc bangles stand up to being knocked about on the wrist?

thank you Smiley
no breakages...the worst wear seems to be gouges or scratches.  Undecided
polymerclay just isnt as hard wearing as metals

my second attempt at a cuff style bracelet.
 the finished cuff....

this was a prior attempt (i've included this as i felt other artists might find the it interesting to see the progression of a piece).....i liked the colour combination but i wasnt entirely happy with it so i removed  the cane slices and made another blank this time a skinner blend (which i felt would add more interest to the piece). it then occurred to me that all the bracelet seem to have all the colour and interesting stuff on the outside i wanted this bracelet to be a little different.
i recut  and repositioned the cane slices so when worn the complex interior is only glimpsed briefly creating a sense of intrigue.

comment or advice more than welcome Smiley
