why use d' in front of adorable?

why use d' in front of adorable?

why is d' used with, elles ont fait d'adorable bracelets and des used with, vous aver fait les des cookies pour la foire. I understand adorable begins with a vowel, as there are mulitple cookies, I don't understand why the plural, des, has not been used. Thankyou

Hi Clare -the partitive article 'des' changes to 'de' (or d' in front of a vowel) when the noun to which it's referring is preceded by an adjective. Hope that helps.
