Polymer Bracelet

I made the above bracelet from polymer and strung it on Beadalon elastic. I found a broken bracelet at Goodwill (tomorrow's post) and wanted to see if I could duplicate it.  I used scrap clay and played with distressing it and different paint finishes, sanding it and finally a quick buff on the electric buffer. It was easy to string and tie it off.
Tomorrow's post will show the process. I wanted a completely different finish, but didn't want to invest the time if the configuration didn't work.
Now that I know it works, I want some color!
