Here are two bracelets that I made today. I made the beads last night and then used seed beads as fillers. What do you think? Any improvements? Does anyone else do stuff like this? My camera is messed up but the first one is red and white and the second one is orange and white. The red and white one is my favorite. It remindes me of candy. Tongue

same here krazigal, i tried it out by like making the bangle round then put a round cylinder of cardboard in the middle of it to keep it round and in the right form...it didn't work and resulted in me throwing the clay at my sister...........*sigh*..............another good craft lost to my sister

I wonder if it would be possible to wrap it around something. My idea would be to use a cheap bangle and just wrap the clay around it and bake it. Would that work or would the original bangle melt or blow up or something. I'll have to try it tomorrow.

this is a bangle I made from polymer.  I used scrap pieces and was originally going to cover it with some textured clay but ended up really liking the color combo and left it as is.  I used one of my old bangle bracelets to make sure the size was gonna work.

You can use certain things as a base to cover with clay but you have to be careful, I've had some stuff start to warp when it is in the heat of the oven

it is solid clay-  I just rolled all the scrap pieces into separate logs and then twisted them all together, made clean straight cuts on both ends and then used a touch of liquid sculpey to glue them together
