Now the mayhem and getting ready for the season I love so much begins. Halloween... I have been waiting for this forever it seems.
Wear a fabulous knuckle necklace, a bone to pick, to a spooktacular evening of elegance a la a stony entrance with appendages dangling from your neck.

You will need:
Cernit phthalate free polymer clay 1- 2 ounce package of opaque White, Caramel, and Granite
7/16” round or teardrop cutter
Ne-Opaque Black or brown
Stencil Brush ½ inch round
Cylindrical glass jar or rolling pin
Copper wire 14 gauge
Wire tools round nose and side cutters
You can use 2 block of the opaque white to 1/2 block of the caramel.
Cut in to 2” sections
I use17 sections for the necklace and 3 sections for the bracelet.
20 sections total.
Do this to all of the 20 sections you have
Poke holes through the middle of each cut section you have made.
These will be for the bracelet.
Cut out circles or teardrops with the 7/16" cutter
Roll those in to balls and flatten a little with your fingers
Pole a hole through the center of each one with the bamboo skewer
You can bake the beads and "bones" on a piece of corrugated cardboard box top in the oven.
Bake the beads with them sitting on the holes.
Take the old towel and wet it a little and squeeze out the excess water, it should be damp not dripping.
Wipe off the extra paint with the toweling and leave the bones looking old and rotten.
I have strung mine on to 14 gauge copper wire and bent hooks in each end for both the bracelet and the necklace
Wilma Flintstone would be jealous.
