COPPRclay Bracelet

This is what I've been sweating and cursing over the last few days- carving some charms to add to it has been on my mind but those can always be added later. I'm just hoping that I managed to get the seams joined well enough, working so thin was a little tricky but I wanted it to look light and airy. The links are all uniform due to my Makin's extruder and wrapping the snake around an oval and circular form to get the shapes.
Now I have plenty of open links that haven't been sealed shut, lots of possibilities- maybe a necklace or another bracelet?

One thing I've learned from using the extruder to make the snakes is that the clay should be fresh and not reconstituted- otherwise it will look rough and fall apart more easily.
