Drop Everything and Make this Game of Thrones Dragon Egg Charm Bracelet
Ok. So I know this is the last season of GOT and everything.
But I feel like, because it’s the last season, I really should step-up my, well, game, and enjoy every second of it.
So, in addition to making these awesome Game of Thrones cocktails, I made this absolutely perfect Game of Thrones Dragon Egg Charm Bracelet!
And can you imagine the tiny dragons that would emerge?! LOL!
I really don’t know why I didn’t make this cute GOT Dragon Egg Charm Bracelet before–it’s so simple.
Guess I just didn’t think of it?
Too bad, because I could have been sporting it this whole time. LOL!
I made it with Filmo Kids Clay (it’s all my local craft store had) in green, red and orange.
Couple of eye pins and jump rings, a little bracelet and I was in business!
I focused on one color at a time so I didn’t get confused.
To start each egg, I just rolled a little of that color into a ball, then made it a little narrower and longer on one side…like an egg.
Then I made a million teeny tiny balls of the same color clay.
Ok, not a million, but it felt like it.
And you have to kind of experiment with what works for you–I found that too small and the balls didn’t make good scales, but too big and they were overbearing.
Then, so I had something to hold onto while I did the whole putting-on-the-scales thing, I went ahead and put my eye pin into my egg.
The post was too long for my egg, so I just trimmed it with a wire cutter to fit.
Then, back to the teeny-tiny ball…they have to be flat to make scales, so, working with one teeny-tiny ball at a time, I flattened them.
Like seriously flat.
As flat as they would go without sticking to my finger and disintegrating as I pulled them off.
Then I just started from the bottom of my egg and put these little circles on the egg.
Now, on the first couple, because they didn’t really overlap as I was making a base, I mushed them down pretty well.
But, as I worked my way up, I only mushed the top part of each scale down, that way the scale stood out as much as possible over the last one.
I had to be careful, because this is tiny and my fingers, although not abnormally large, are much larger than the dragon egg…
You can tell I did the orange egg first and the red egg last–my skill improved as I worked.
So, you might do a practice egg or two before finalizing.
Or just be like me and live with what you’ve got when you’re learning, because it’s part of the fun! LOL!
Once my eggs had baked per the instructions on my clay’s package, I let them cool, and then coated them with some paint.
I wanted the red one to be a little more red, so I hit it with some red paint.
Then I dry brushed all of them with gold metallic paint.
But, I wanted them to be darker…you know…more Game of Thrones Dragon Egg Charm Bracelet than “cutesy”.
So I added a little dry-brushed black craft paint on the bottom 1/3 of each egg.
Then I hit them again with the gold, just to make it really shiny.
I think they’re absolutely perfect.
And, as far as putting them on the bracelet, you can use whatever you want, but I have this one that’s just a link bracelet and it worked great!
So, if you can score one of these at the craft store, awesome, or you can just use a leather thong.
They’re a freaking Game of Thrones Dragon Egg Charm Bracelet–so you do whatever.
I’m pretty sure ANYTHING (short of like hot lava) would make a great chain to put these on.
So, you’re ready to make your own Game of Thrones Dragon Egg Charm Bracelet, but you don’t have any polymer clay?
Too bad, friend.
