DIY TUTORIAL: Valentine's Day Carved Initials Hearts Bracelet

Hello, hello!
As promised, here it is my personal tutorial on how to make Carved Initials Hearts Bracelet..
It is made from polymer clay and (can you believe?) from a circle earring. Yes, I lost the other one, so why throw it away when you can make a bracelet? Of course you can use a chain too!
Hope you like it!

All you need is:

(love. ohoh i'm so funny)

-Polymer Clay (I used FIMO)
-Circle Earring or Chain
-Clasps
-Wire (optional)
-Silver nailpolish or paint (optional)


Take a piece of your clay. I use pearl grey clay

Draw a little heart on a sheet of paper, cut it and put it on your clay piece.Draw a little heart on a sheet of paper, cut it and put it on your clay piece.

Write your initial on the first heart, then write your partner's one.

Make holes for clasps, then bake them!

*I painted them with silver nailpolish, and I use black nailpolish to fill the letters. But this step is optional!*

Now take your clasps, your circle earring (if you don't have one, you can always use a chain) and a bead if you want to add a detail.

Using a plier, open the clasp and put the heart on the circle.

Tie some silver wire around the bracelet if you want to stop your hearts.
