Rose Gold Mix???
1/4 pkg of Old magenta Pearl Premo accents
1/4 pkg of Premo Pearl
1/4 pkg of 18 Gold Premo accents
For the black accents I used:
New Sculpey Technique design blocks, Dot tool I used the one on the Bottom left to make the dotted mica shift technique on the black pearl designs on the bangle.
For the Rose Gold Mica shift technique I used the new texture sheets by Sculpey. Love them. I used the largest texture sheet from this texture package called landscape. It is a gorgeous Rose pattern sheet.

I added 2 mm of black clay to the base of the bracelet blank.
Then cut several slices of mica shift in the rose patterns.
Some thin slices of the mica shift accents from the rose pattern texture sheet and added thin areas of rose gold clay around the bracelet.
Between those layers I added the dotted mica shift I made from the black pearl accent clay.
To finish it off I cut a 8 inch 5mm wide piece of clay to cover each end of the bangle to hide any imperfections and finish the bracelet.
Added some matching little dots of clay with my ball stylist and baked it at 250 for an hour.
