I had this idea running around in my head for a while now, this challenge was just the motivation I needed to get started
here's what it looks like on

I made the separators from polymer clay to match the buttons and used magnetic clasps to make it easy on/ off

up Close

and the back

This is pretty. It reminds me of some of the more fashionable pieces of clothing that are popular right now. All you need is a cute dress or top to go with it!

I really love this! Other than the buttons, the coolest part has to be the polymer clay separators, they really compliment the bracelet! Do u have a tutorial on how to make those?

I don't have a tutorial I kinda just winged it, But here are the steps I used in order to create the separators.  I mixed  light blue and brown polymer clay  to get a marble look, I then rolled out the polymer clay to desired thickness, cut out two same size rectangles, rounded the edges and inserted 3 eye pins on either side, bake according to directions then glazed. That's it!

I've seen lots of (expensive) buttons bracelets in shop around here lately... and yours is much more original, I love the colors!

That middle button is AMAZING. The bracelet is super-cute.

LOOKING FOR A PERSONAL SWAP: I'm hoping for dinosaur-themed Xmas crackers, or other dinosaur Xmas items. I can make a Jayne Cobb hat, or many other things!

So cute!  Love the buttons, and awesome idea on the poly clay seperators.  I may have to try that next time I'm thinking "multistrand" but don't want to use metal.  Smiley

I am looking to do a personal swap with (or will outright pay for) a knitter who could make an adult sized knitted t-rex sweater for Christmas. If anyone is interested, please let me know.
