This original and very unique bracelet is more than jewelry or an accessory item; it is a wearable work of art. As a fan of the nontraditional, statement jewelry, I am always on a quest to create items that push the limits, that are unexpected and unusual, but that at the same time remain classically elegant and beautiful. This cuff is an expression of this search. I was inspired by the eternal miracle that is nature while working with several dimensions, making use of different shapes, textures, and colors. The bracelet was made entirely by hand using polymer clay. I used a blank brass cuff bracelet as a base which I ‘clothed’ in a layer of polymer clay. The upper, decorative part of the bracelet is also made out of polymer clay. Each butterfly was molded separately before arranging them together. I used mica powders before ‘washing’ the cuff with clear gloss to protect it from external conditions.
