Steampunk Cuff Link Bracelet

By: Sandy Huntress for AllFreeJewelryMaking

Making steampunk jewelry is all about finding the perfect balance between industrial and romantic design elements, and this Steampunk Cuff Link Bracelet does all of that and more. The robust polymer clay links used in this tutorial give the chunky effect of a cuff but with the freedom of movement of a beaded bracelet. This beaded bracelet design is ideal for those who like to incorporate a bit of edge into their accessories while still keep it pretty and feminine. The cogs and gears featured in these artsy polymer clay beads are what steampunk is all about.
