Polymer Clay Bracelet

I know there are polymer clay experts out there – I’m not one of them.  There’s so much you can make with them that it’s almost too daunting.  But I did a quick easy ornament several months ago and got over my fear of the stuff.  So now what?
I came up with the easiest thing to make with clay – balls.  Take a ball, squish it a little and poke a hole in it  – voila, beads.  It was so easy that I didn’t take many tutorial pictures for my “how to make a polymer clay bead bracelet” – and the pictures I did take aren’t good – oh well.  I’ll talk you through it. 
For the swirl effect, take a couple colors of clay and layer them.  Tear them and layer them back together.  Do this several times.  Then roll into a ball and you should see swirls.
Roll whatever clay you’re using (swirl or plain color) into a ball.  Flatten slightly.  Use a straw to poke a hole through it (remove straw).  Bake as directed.
I used a strip of fabric as my “string” and just threaded the beads on.  Occasionally I tied a knot inbetween beads for interest.  I also tied a knot at each end so the beads won’t fall off.  That’s it!  Don’t be afraid of polymer clay – this was really easy and the clay is relatively cheap (like a $1.25 for a square of color).  And now I’ve got a fun chunky bracelet:
I’ll be linking to several Link Parties – check out the fun!!
