Handmade polymer clay blackberry charm bracelet

For us locally, bramble thickets grow in a number of untamed places, each a haven in itself for all manner of creature who seem perfectly happy to dwell on, in and under the swathes of prickle laden branches. Stealing blackberries from under their many legs is quite a daunting feat.

Come mid-August a few visits are paid to a favourite spot where enough ripe berries are usually waiting to fill up a tub. This fav strip of finger-staining awesomeness runs behind a row of enormous fir trees lining the local cricket club grounds, held partially in check by an equally enormous railing fence that, regardless of its height still enables lots of thorny green tentacles to tumble up, over and out through the fence's in-between gaps, going on to form a trailing blanket along the edge of the adjacent pedestrian/cyclepath and an overhead canopy as the vines wind and knit together, this top and bottom shelving makes reaching the plump bounty far less fraught!
