Polymer Covered Clamps

I've started a black and white edging on the sides of the bracelet, but I'm not that happy with this piece. I was experimenting with the clamps and polymer clay. This size clamp is meant for delicas, not these larger beads. But, it's been fun, as always.

I've learned the same lesson - get the right stuff for the project. I am just teaching myself to beadweave and have made a couple bracelets from magazine features. I love herringbone. I've also done even and odd peyote, and most recently square stitch.

Thanks for the book recommend - I've been looking for a 'primer' to teach me the basics.

Check out some of my learning curve bracelets:

I love reading your blog because you work in so many media. I think I found it following a link from PolymerClay Daily. Thanks so much for blogging about your process. I have been a closet artisan for many years, but never wanted to show any work to anyone.

What a clever idea! I've never seen anyone cover these clamps with polymer clay before. Can see all kinds of potential for something like that. Great job!
