Hope you enjoy this little instructable :)
Step 1: Materials
a needle(with a ball tip)
clay(I used air dry )
a hollow carved bead
Step 2: Creating the Shape(Full Moon)
Take a bit of clay and flatten it on the surface.Push the bead on the clay and carefully lift it up with the needle.
Step 3: Cleaning the Edges
Push the ring in the middle and take off the excess clay.You can go around with a knife too.Lastly clean off the edges with the needle and soften with the ball tip.
Step 4: Creating the Half Moon Shape
Repeat the first step for the half moon but keep the shape a bit on the left side.Then cut it in half with the knife.Clean the hard edges with the needle.
Step 5: Creating the Crescent Shape
Again repeat the first step but this time crate the crescent shape by pressing the ring on the clay.
Step 6: Adding the Hole
Using the needle create a little hole on top of the shapes and make it larger using the tip of a pen or a toothpick.If you want you can leave it without painting,it looks pretty cool in my opinion :)
Step 7: Painting
Okaay this step can be a little tricky just be careful :)
Hold it with the tip of a pen and paint reaaally lighly on the clay.So that you only paint the surface.
Step 8: Bracelet
Now the beads are done you can make everything you want!
I just attached one bead to a bracelet but you can make a choker necklace too :).
