Here's the source which I found on pinterest. Her's is better. It's hard for me to gather supplies here. I got lucky and walked in to find the green fun fur at my local craft store. I had to wait a month for a boat to bring more wreath forms to that craft store. We wont talk about what I paid for the flowers that were sold individually at my favorite Japanese bead shop. Then I used headpins to attach the flowers because all my straight pins have vanished. Despite all that I love it so much!
Next up polymer clay. I've been meaning to play with the bits I have here & then when the local craft shop posted on their facebook page that they had a shipment of Sculpy III I was in route within 15 minutes of reading it. They haven't carried it in about a year. I've been waiting and putting in requests so I refused to let them sell out before I got there. You should know this craft shop is the only thing like a Micheal's, Jo-Anne's, Hobby Lobby I've found on this island. I've shared my first polymer clay bead here, but what I want to show you is the ring my son made for me while we played with "ok not play-doh" together.

Now I want to share what I spent my birthday creating. I got this great pattern from FDEkszer. It's called Boho Bangle. I found Viktoria Szabo through one of my facebook groups which lead me to her page, FDEkszer, where I found a link to this tutorial in her etsy shop. I'm trying again with delicas like the pattern says, but I'm obsessed with this color combo right now.
Before I even bought Viktoria's pattern, I visited a group of blogs who experimented with stacked bracelets. I was inspired to make a few with the paper beads I made a while back. Here's more pictures of my Boho Bangle with my other new bangles. By the way, I have huge hands for a girl. I haven't had a bangle bracelet since I was a child because I can't get any over my hand. That being said you can imagine the excitement by being able to make my own.
Yes, I know better than to wear these together, but I was trying to take advantage of the peek-a-boo sunshine we have during rainy season. So, it's nothing fancy today, but they sure were a lot of fun.
