Introduction: Easy Polymer Clay Beads
I'm sure I'll never have enough necklaces. But my wallet says I'll never have enough money to buy them.
So I need to get creative and make them by myself. And I like some of them better than the ones at the store. This is one of those.
I spent less than $4 in all the materials I used for this necklace. Oh how I love polymer clay!

Your jewellery making supplies and tools
Step 2: Round Stamped Bead
Just make a small ball, squeeze it a little bit to have a small flat surface.
Now stamp it to impress a delicate design on it.
Step 3: Faceted Diamond Bead
Try a different shape with the same clay. Start with an oval shape, and make thinner the edges.
Using a cutter make straight cuts in several angles to make it look faceted.
Before baking the clay insert a pin or wire to make the hole that you'll need later to assemble the necklace.
Bake your clay according to the manufacturer´s instrucctions.
Step 4: Assemble
Finish your necklace with a chain, and add extra beads.
