Rainbow Toadstool Bracelet
Continuing with our toadstool theme for the week, I wanted to create a fun piece of jewelry from these darling little toadstools! Here is what I came up with.
I used Sculpey oven bake clay, some jewelry findings, pliers, and 6 glass beads.
First, remove the clay from it's package and knead it until it is smooth and pliable. Break off a piece and roll it into a sphere. Flatten it on the bottom by pressing it into the counter or tray you are working on. I used a clay tool to press a hole into the center bottom for the stem to go.
Add tiny white balls of clay where you want your dots to be. I used the back of my fingernail to flatten them and smooth them out.
I used white clay to create a stem that fit into the hole created by the tool. I used a straight jewelry pin with one loop to create the hole down the center on the toadstool.
I kept the pins in place while I baked the clay. 275 degrees for 30 minutes was perfect.
They came out looking adorable and ready to "string"
I threaded a bead on their own pin ands laid the bracelet out how I wanted it to look. I trimmed the wires to the correct lengths. I used the pliers to create loops on the ends that did not have them and alternated joining the bead wires with the toadstools wires.
I wore this bracelet for the remainder of the day and I am not kidding when I tell you I had people fighting over buying it!! Super cute and Fun!!
Have fun with it! Share what you did to make it yours!
