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

This relates to:
Conjugate faire (+ avoir) in Le Passé Composé (conversational past) -

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.
