Step 1: What You Will Need

A few different polymer clay colors.
A bangle. Use this as a guideline to measure and shape the bracelet before baking it.

Step 2:

Using the palm of your hand roll two thin tubes. If you just want to use one color you can.

Step 3: Roll the Two Colors Together

Wrap one color over the other. Roll them together with the palm of your hand to blend the two.

Step 4:

Using the bangle as a guideline wrap your tube of clay around it tightly. Mush the two ends together and smooth out with your finger.

Remove the guideline bangle and bake your bracelet at 275 degrees for 20 minutes.

Step 5:

You can make as many as you want!

    Very nice! I'm just wondering how strong these bracelets are. Have you had any trouble with them breaking?

    Nice 'able. As I have never made anything with polymer clay, so I thought you would take plastic aquarium pipes and put the clay around it and melt it together somehow... ( It certianly looks that way!!)
