I have a family wedding to go to this weekend, so of course had to take the opportunity to make myself another octopus for my hair! 



And while I was at it, I went ahead and did bangles and a jellyfish pendant necklace to stay in a sea theme.


jellyfish closeup. I love the concept of this and really like how it came out. I plan on refining it quite a bit more though!


Bangle inspired by bubbles - but in the colors of my dress


These bangles were made as part of my Craft-Along Tutorial project (link is in my signature if you are interested).  The grey one followed the tut pretty much to a T.  The other 3 were more experimental.

They are just translucent and orange clay, not liquid Smiley

Haha almost! I daydream constantly about ways I can incorporate them into pieces other than hair doohickies.  I have one as a necklace, but its just straight up too big, and making them much smaller I would really lose the detail so I am remiss to even try.  I do have an idea percolating for a cuff bracelet though... time will tell if it comes to fruition!
