Sure it’s fun to make your own jewelry, but how much better to make even the beads!  In this video I’ll how you a simple technique for adding sparkle and color to translucent polymer clay.

Although I’m quite pleased with how this project came out, it wasn’t my intent to make a green bracelet. The plan was to make beads in blues, purples and greens, but the blue turned more green and the purples were a weird muddy pink.

However, the greens are rather nice, so all’s well that ends well. 🙂

That’s one tricky thing about using translucent polymer clay: what you see before baking is not necessarily what you get afterwards. Since now I know the Premo Translucent clay has a bit of a yellowing effect, next time I’ll make it work for me and try using autumnal shades instead.

Also, I need to get some Pardo Transparent Clay to experiment with, as it’s clarity & transparency is highly regarded among other polymer clay artists.

Tools & Materials:

Enjoy and happy creating!
