Polymer Clay Batik Bracelet - Color Challenge

This Polymer Clay Batik Bracelet color challenge imposed on myself is kind of fun. This one was supposed to incorporate pink, black and gold. The pink is very subtle underneath the surface treatment of golden bronze and texturing, but my husband commented with a big smile 'very regal' when he saw it finished. Little did he know the pink was a scrap blend from red, alazarin, white and gray...


I actually had to look up what 'regal' means, lol. I knew it had something to do with 'royalty', but can also mean 'magnificent and splendid'. Magnificent, well I don't know as that reaches quite high, but perhaps splendid is good :).
This bracelet has a bit of Asian influence with the Bronze flowers in the center of the ovals. I had ordered these from an Etsy shop located in Hong Kong because I wanted bronze 'somethings' including some bronze sequins that go well with steampunkery . The beads also have some Japanese text, but just a hint here and there. The little beads I added on the ovals give the beads a pagoda or antique effect. I guess I'm pleased...

Tomorrows challenge...a long beach hike and perhaps another color challenge...

I love the new colors and especially the little details that you have added...like the metal embellishments and the beads on the ends of the ovals. Exquisite!

Thanks so much...I'm planning on more colors. Can't wait to get out into my studio. Ah...wait a minute. I need to get out there and clean it up again. After each project comes chaos.
