Sorry about the terrible quality photos, 1.) I have the worst digital camera ever manufactured ever and 2.) I am the worst photographer ever. I would much prefer drawing to photo-ing. I draw all the time and I want to be an artist! I like making stuff out of polymer clay too so...
 The graphic artist's bracelet!

(of course that's like the worst pencil sketch ever but it's not my fault because my models kept moving. grr)

Ooo that is so neat! I love to draw too and I would love to have a pencil bracelet! Is there danger of them breaking?

Thank you! I'll make a quick tutorial if you like.
I thought there would be, but they've been through a lot (I mean a lot: I'm really careless, for example: stepping on them, running into things, sleeping on top of them, dropping them, etc etc) and nothings broken (yet)! They're surprisingly sturdy. I've been meaning to glaze em with some polyutherne finish to make them sturder but I don't think so now because they are so durable.

Cool bracelet!  Great idea too.


P.S.
Re strength, if you didn't use Sculpey** (or possibly the new version of FimoSoft) --without armatures at least) and as long as you baked the clay thoroughly, your pencils should be really strong and you probably couldn't break them if you tried!  So don't worry about adding polyurethane unless you just want to use gloss polyurethane and give them a shine (... btw, liquid polymer clays work better than a "glaze" if you do need strength for something later).

I've always used sculpey, I had no idea it was weaker than the others Shocked. I'll have to get some new clay!
Meshuge, I'd love a tutorial if you wanted to make one. Smiley

that's awesome!!  Are those actually kneaded rubber erasers?  If they are, don't they collect a lot of hair and dust and stuff?  You should post your drawings on craftster Cheesy

Nope! The "kneaded eraser" beads are clay too. And yeah, I'm definitely thinking I should! Thank you.

Great idea! I could see oil pastels and such in a similar braceley, or oil tube beads.
