norsgoebel - I love your bangle!

Here's some more beads. It's kind of picture heavy.









Some of the beads are crappy but I thought I'd post them anyway.  Roll Eyes

I love polymer clay. All I need is a pasta machine. We're both in the bead swap, it would be cool if we got paired together.

I think we're also partners for the pinback swap.  Grin

Hanau-  I don't know if they have AC Moore's in your neck of the woods, but they have very good prices on pasta machines.  I want  to say they were advertising them for 19.99?!

hanau, you can also get a pasta machine cheap at Michaels... using their bi-weekly? 40% off coupon, their $25 Amaco pasta machine comes down to about $15  Grin.   This machine is made in the Far East, so it's not as sturdy as the Italian-made ones, but if just follow a few guidelines, it should be fine!
(...check out this page for suggested guidelines, as well as uses for polymer clay, suppliers, etc.)
http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/pastamachines.htm

Also, for perilously_divine who asked about the holes, check out this page for various techniques for creating these and other kinds of polymer bracelets (tiles, etc.) ... there are different ways to get a hole or channels for elastic/Buna cord, etc. in polymer bracelets.  It's best to start out with one of the simple ones  Smiley
