This was my first serious attempt at making any kind of jewelry as well as my first time sculpting, painting, and sealing beads. I made it for my partner, a loaded charm bracelet lover, in the Portal & Friends Swap. I'm currently working on another version for myself because I ended up falling in love with loaded charm bracelets as I made this one.

The whole thing:


I chose the clasp specifically because it was the shape of a portal. For 'filler' beads I used blue and orange glass (?) beads to signify the portals, and red and black beads to signify the turret's eyes and the surveillance cameras in the facility.


The charms (clockwise from the oval clasp) are:
Morality Core
Heart (for the Companion Cube)
Turret
Curiosity Core
Wheatley
GLaDOS
Anger Core
Adventure Core (Rick)

Cake/Logic Core
Space Core (SPAAAAAAAACE!)
Atlas
Fact Core
Lemon (as in "I don't want your damn lemons")
P-Body

Here it is worn:

As soon as I saw this I knew it was Portal. Fantastic work! Is it super heavy?

It's actually surprisingly light, perhaps because I used sculpty? I'm not a polyclay expert, so I don't know if that would make a difference.

But there never was any cake!

Seriously though, I just think the meme is overdone, so it totally slipped my mind.
