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
