Handmade Beads for Summer Bags

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Simple rules: Use a dedicated aluminum pan to bake polymer clay. Once this pan is used to bake polymer clay--do not ever use it again to prepare food! Use heavy gauge galv. wire to string beads, and pendants. Pliers will help you bend/form a zig-zag wire stringer to support pendants on bails while baking. Bake beads, buttons, pendants according to package directions. 275 degrees F for 30 minutes is average.

What you will need

  • How I prepared Premo Polymer Clay in various colors
  • to match Sample Fabrics to make beads for my French Blue and Yellow Summer Bags.
