Crafty jewelry with polime clay: easy crafts for kids

Clay, Jewelry making  |  September 26th 2011  |  0 Comment

Inspired by the polymer clay friendship bracelets stocked in the shop we featured yesterday, I decided to tackle my own Sculpey beaded bracelets. I just can’t get enough of this friendship bracelet craze. I even made one for Sunny.

Crafty jewelry with polime clay: easy crafts for kids

Polymer clay
Dowel or skewer to use for punching hole in clay bead
Baking sheet

1. Start by making and baking a batch of polymer clay beads. It’ll take you back to elementary school! Roll up a few tiny balls, punch ‘em through with a skewer, form into desired shape, lay on a baking sheet and cook for 10 minutes at 275 degrees F. Beads ready!

2. Next, using a thread of choice (I found a beading thread at a local craft store), braid the clay beads like we did in the DIY Hex Nut Bracelet Tutorial.

3. To finish off the bracelet and make it adjustable, I used a Multiple Overhead Sliding Knot. Easy on and off!
