Picture of Personalized Bracelet with Needle Tatting.
I wanted to project that was very basic, for my friends and others to follow. I also enjoy, combining several techniques from other things I have made, This bracelet was quick,  easy to make and also personalized. I am still obsessed with fact I can stamp on clay. the possibilities are endless I am growing small stamp collection. I also plan on making a few for my friends,

The bracelet uses a basic ring and chain method for needle tatting. The clay focal is very easy make.

1. Run the clay through pasta machine on its widest setting.

2. Carefully slice out a rectangle that measures 1/2 inches, by 2 inches, this however can be shortened or lengthened to fit the desired name, word or initials..

3.At the ends of the rectangle take the bamboo skewer and poke two holes into the clay.

4. Ink up the stamps and carefully stamp the name or initials into the clay. 

5. Prep clay for baking, preheat the oven to the proper temperature for the clay. 

6. Take the foil and make slight arch in the foil, this is so that it will bake slightly curved to fit the contour of your wrist.

7. Bake it off and let it cool!
