Man has this week gone by fast! Just yesterday I said to myself "It's Wednesday!" (in disbelief) but with a calendar check it was Wednesday, which means that I had to take pictures of my craft pronto! And that my folks, I have done :). This week I made Geometric Beads. To show you how to make them, I drew this little comic explaining the whole process...
1// Roll clay into balls.
2// Fold out some paper clips or sturdy wire.
3// Put your clay balls on the wire to pierce them to make them beads.
4// Bake your beads as directed.
5// Take your balls out.
6// While hot, cut sides off quickly to get nice straight lines.
7// Take jewelry wire that has stoppers at the end and put them through the bead.
8// Bend the wire to become a loop and put it onto your necklace, earring or whatever...
THE END! And just a fair warning, the beads can sometimes be hard to cut and this crafts is not maybe so much for clumsy people like me. I am now sporting a pair of double band-aids because of my run-ins with the exact-o knife. I drew a little something to warn you :).
|Bloody peace! (YUCK!)|
