One accessory that I am forever addicted to is bangles. I freaking love bangles! But every now and then I buy a set of bangles thinking that I'm going to wear them with some out fit, then I buy them and realize that no... I will not be wearing those with the outfit I intended for. Well, these have started to pile up.

Now, to stop my bad habit of buying new bangles I'm instead going to re-purpose them into new bangles. Tonight's tutorial is one of my bangle experiments.

What you need:
Polymer Clay (preferably 2 contrasting colors)
Bangle/Bracelet
 
 

Step 1:

Start by making a coil of two contrasting colors. Then wrap them around randomly on the bangle.
 
Very nice! I would worry about them breaking, but I'm a pro when it comes to breaking things :)

See, they aren't really that fragile mainly because there is a metal bangle underneath all that clay. Trust me, I am also a pro at breaking things lol!

Neat! I have some ugly bangles I inherited from random relatives (You like jewelry, right? Have this!) and growing collection of polymer clay. I've thought about decoupaging them- this seems much simpler!

That's how it normally goes for me too! I bet decoupaging them would be really neat though!
