Please use the comment section below, to discuss the items presented…  or to let me know what other projects / techniques you would like to see and learn more about.

Copper Metal and Polymer Clay Bracelet by Cindy Lietz Dangle Bangles:Simple clean designs are often the most fun to wear. And these hammered copper bracelet bangles are no exception!


The funky jewelry bracelets in today’s photo spread are similar to each other, but also have some differences. One of the bangles has a clean simple loop clasp with a round polymer clay bead dangle made using the Glowing Jellyroll Cane.

The 3/4″ (15mm) round bead hangs from a flame dipped handmade copper headpin, which compliments the copper bangle quite nicely.

The other bangle has a similar front opening clasp, but is a bit more artistic with the styled wire wrapped loop. The almost 1″ (25cm) polymer clay disk bead, is made using a domed slice of the same Glow in the Dark Jellyroll Cane, also hung from a flame dipped copper headpin.

Either bracelet will fit a 6″ to 7 1/2″ (15-19cm) wrist size.

Price: $20 EachIf you are interested in purchasing either of the bangles shown in today’s post, then send me an email. Be sure to indicate whether you want the simple bangle with the round bead, or the wire wrapped bangle with the disk bead.

    Cindy your gallery pieces are just like your tutes they just keep getting better and better. I love both your bracelets, they are shear genius. I am so honored to be learning from you. You and Doug just keep giving all of us so much while asking so little from us. Neither one of you have a selfish bone in your body. I would be lost without your blog and tutes. You can’t quit because I would go into a very deep withdraw and probably flip out then who know what. All I know is I hope everyone agrees with me and asks you to do a tute on these bracelets or just one of them and very soon.
    So PLEASE WITH A CHERRY ON TOP will you consider doing a tute on your bracelet or bracelets. This gallery was a wonderful idea.
    Love and Uuuuuuggggs, Peggy

    I want to learn how to make wire bangles too! I guess you could apply the same concept to rings as well. One of my cousins loves big chunky rings and asked if I could make anything like that, I had to say no for now, but I’ll see what I can do!

  3. Cheryl Hodges, 19 May, 2010

    I would love a tute on th e bangle too. It’s beautiful – you’re jewelry pieces are unique.
    @ Silverleaf – a ring with a polymer bead on top would be a great idea.

    Your dangle bangles are beautiful. I would love see how to make those.

    I posted a picture of some earrings I made with the “Leopard skin Cane” (mine looks like giraffe) on my blog at: designsbyloretta.blogspot.com/2010/05/giraffe-print-polymer-clay-earrings.html

    Love the Pieces! Love the photography! I’d welcome a tut, too

  6. Melinda Herron, 19 May, 2010

    Giggles… I love bangles and this one has such a clean simple design. Fabulous!

  7. Cara H, 20 May, 2010

    Simple, but beautiful!

  8. Ken H, 20 May, 2010

    Sorry I’m late getting to this blog, lovely bangle bracelet, Cindy, please show us how to make it.

  9. Linda K., 20 May, 2010

    I really like these bracelets, Cindy. I like how the messy wrap on the clasp gives it more “weight” to balance with the dangle…just my preference. Although I could probably make something similar now, I vote for a tut on these. Your videos always teach me something new.

  10. Freda K, 20 May, 2010

    With your other tutes on wire I think most of us could make these bangle bracelets. A ring is another story. Would like to make a ring with a polymer clay bead on top.

  11. Phaedrakat, 21 May, 2010

    Very nice bangles! I love the clean & simple look. I especially love the one with the “messy wrap”. Although I agree with Linda & Freda that most of us could figure out how to make these, I would love a tute. You always show us tips that make things much easier — and better! I’d also love a tute on rings. I think they’d be really popular! I’m also hoping for tutes on polymer clay bangle bracelets with, and without, blanks.

    I think these gallery posts are a great idea. You’re showing us some beautiful jewelry, and we get to see it from all the angles. Way to go, Cindy!

  12. DJ, 22 May, 2010

    I agree completely with Phaedrakat, I really look forward to these gallery posts too. I love to see how the different techniques we’ve been taught can be combined to create such unique pieces. Would be very interested in learning this lovely dangle. Could be pretty with charms (anjou pears; hearts; poppy beads; tribal/carved designs; faux-anything…), very cool idea.

  13. DJ, 22 May, 2010

    Oh just noticed Silverleaf’s comment about rings as well, that would be something I’d be very interested in too.

  14. Laurel, 24 May, 2010

    Oh Cindy! These are very cool! I like them alot. I just made some animal print beads from the leopard cane you taught us a couple weeks ago and they would look soooo great on this bracelet. I know what I am going to be doing tonight. :) Thanks for another great idea!!

  15. Cindy Lietz, 28 May, 2010

    Sorry for not popping in sooner, but I have been sooooo busy! Lots of great stuff going on! Thank you all for your sweet supportive comments. Glad you liked the Dangle Bangles. They are pretty fun to wear and you can put any type of charm or charms that you like, including leopard or zebra cane beads!
