Very nice! I'm just wondering how strong these bracelets are. Have you had any trouble with them breaking?

Nice 'able. As I have never made anything with polymer clay, so I thought you would take plastic aquarium pipes and put the clay around it and melt it together somehow... ( It certianly looks that way!!)
