What you need...
- ELASTICATED BRACELET Polymer clay in white, peppermint, tangerine, pacific blue, plum, Lazertran transfer paper for polymer clay, Elasticated clear cord, 30cm, Instant glue
- TOOLS Pliers, round-nosed, flat-nosed, Wire cutters, Clay roller, Tissue blade, Burnishing tool, Shallow tray, Dremel hobby drill and fine drill bit, Bead piercing needles, Laser photocopier, Clear nail varnish (optional)
Elasticated Bracelet - 1. Make up six or seven name tiles and bake and finish as before. Drill a small hole through each one horizontally, making them big enough to take elastic cord. Make up two peppermint, two pacific blue, one plum, one tangerine and one Indian red 8mm polymer clay balls. Make a pilot hole through the centre of each one and bake for 20 minutes as before. Allow to cool, then varnish the round beads.
2. Thread the beads onto elastic cord, alternating them with the brightly coloured balls, and adding enough to achieve the correct fit. Tie the ends of the elastic together and pass them back through a couple of beads. Apply a spot of instant glue to secure.
