Made a Bertie Botts every flavor jelly bean bracelet for the OT Harry Potter swap.  Made completely from polymer clay, not painted.  It looks good enough to eat!  But I'd imagine they'd be a bit crunchy and probably taste like a bertie botts dirt flavor, lol.



I even carved a teeny tiny Botts stamp to give them that authentic look.


Packaged it up nice and hidden among some real jellybeans in the Botts box.


Was fun!  Thanks for looking.

LOL! When I saw the last post from the one who received it I thought.."did they put real candy on a bracelet? How in the world are they going to keep them on there?"

They're polymer clay?!!  They look so real!!!!  Good enough to eat!  Fooled me..great job!

These are INCREDIBLE!
Though I would have a hard time wearing them, you know, salivating excessively all the time. People love that.  Cheesy

I can't get over how real they look!

Great idea to use up the beans! I'd made some for my friend's birthday, but I didn't think of making them into something useful... Cheesy
