Baked Beads



Can you eat just one potato chip, one peanut, one ...   Can you make just one bead?


The stretch cord bracelet took maybe 5 minutes.  A key chain is next and we had no satisfactory beads.


 We jumped to lesson 8 and started making beads.  It takes a bit to get going and now we have lots of ideas for making and baking!

Polymer clay is amazing and all the things that can be done with it. Your beads look like a lot of fun. I wasn't very good at any of the polymer clay bead making. Lots of supplies but no interest. Maybe I will see your progress and reinvestigate my supplies. Happy bead baking...

Making and Baking you own beads is fun! The clay comes in such great colors and it's not too expensive....so if they don't all turn out, it's not a big lose. They make cute bracelets, too, it looks like.
