Bubble Gum Bobble Cuff by getpersonalart Bubble Gum Bobble Cuff by getpersonalart
I create these cuffs by designing them on my computer. Then engrave and cut them with my laser from 1/8 in crystal clear acrylic, and form them by hand for a perfect custom fit. Next I hand paint them, and add Swarovski Crystals.

Do you maybe have an Etsy shop or something similar?
I really like your cuffs very much :love:

I really like this. Colorful, in a very simple way, transparent but with obvious attention to detail, and very well designed. Something like this can only be done with acrylic, and I like that the bracelet is fun and whimsical without having that plastic quality that acrylic sometimes has.

How exactly did you shape the acrylic, I'm wondering?

Oh my gosh thanks so much. Yes I worked soooo hard coming up with this jewelry. I hand bend them after I heat them, I have three laser files for each design that allows a perfect fit for any size woman (or man, yep I've designed for men too;). I just found this site tonight! I'm glad I did:) ~Alysia

You're very welcome.

And you've got skill. I tried bending transparent acrylic and all it did was turn white, which was aweful and not what I was going for at all. I wasn't making jewelry though.

And welcome to the site. Though I will warn you now that not everyone will try to offer positive feedback on what you post. But I try to :)

You don't want to over heat it. It will bubble and generally get yucky. You can use a heat gun for smaller pieces:) Thanks!
