Undoubtedly, this is the bracelet I wear the most!

It’s my “Potpourri” bracelet design worked up in bronze tones.  My wardrobe is basically comprised of neutrals and this bracelet just goes with everything!  There are several other reasons why I like it so well.  One is that it is extremely comfortable and the perfect weight.  The beads roll easily with each movement of my wrist.  The size of the beads (roughly 20mm) are large enough to make a statement, yet not so large as to be cumbersome.  But what I love most about this mixed media bracelet is that it combines my favorite materials – metal clay, polymer clay, and beading!   It’s an easy project that is also very adaptable.  One has the option of creating it using all of these materials, or just one or two.  It’s beautiful when made completely of polymer clay.  And it takes on a totally different look when the design is made of just seed beaded beads.  It can be composed of subtle monotones or a riot of colorful beads!  And, of course, you could do the entire piece with metal clay if you have unlimited funds!  If you think you’d have fun making one or several bracelets in this design, the “Potpourri” beading kit and/or pattern is available in my Etsy shop.
