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.

This is amazing! The beans are so realistic, and they work perfectly as a bracelet.

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!
