Also known as a hand flower, slave bracelet and more, the cufflet, as Fire Mountain labels it, is a unique decoration for the backs of hands. The idea tethers rings and bracelets together with simple or intricate design work in between. Cufflets give an exotic or Bohemian vibe and can be worn as a stand-alone piece or made to match necklace and earring sets. Chain, chainmaille and seed beads are common materials used to achieve this look.
Rings are fun (and stylish) to wear in multiples. With multi-finger rings you accomplish the look with one convenient jewelry piece. Double-finger rings are made with either one solid base and a design over the top, or multiple ring bases with loops linked together by chain or other embellishment. Also, create original double-banded designs by sculpting metal clay. Some styles incorporate multiple bands or more than two fingers for statement knuckle decoration.
Fashionable and functional wallet chains keep keys or wallets attached to you for easy access and safe keeping. Wallet chains are your next all-age men's or unisex design since dangling chain is an always-popular industrial-looking fashion. Personalize with rhinestuds, chainmaille or beaded accents including sports team charms, skulls and pendants. Repurpose leather bracelet blanks as the belt connector or select your own leather and unique snaps for customized buttons. Matching wallet chains to bracelets and necklaces provides even more accessory opportunities.
Jewelry is an extension of the individual, so personalized designs are always fun to make and sell. Take a locket, watch body or other suitable mount and fill with ICE® Resin or Lisa Pavelka's Signature Series Magic-Glos®. Leave the base as is or throw in a background with craft paper or Kato Polyclay™ liquid and then add fun, different-themed charms in varying layers of resin. Basically, add anything that fits! Even whole polymer clay creations such as Christi Friesen's steampunk fish are ready to be thrown in the mix. Matching pendants are great as friendship necklaces for younger crowds or bought singly to express custom interests at any age.
