How to Make Clay Beads
Making beads from clay can be a simple, basic process or a very involved art project. It is a fabulous hobby because it allows you to create jewelry and other items, using your imagination for the entire process. Beads can be made out of many different kinds of clay and pottery, but the most popular type of clay for bead-making is polymer clay. Polymer clay is particularly well-suited to this type of home crafting since the beads can be baked in an ordinary oven or even a toaster oven rather than requiring firing in a kiln. Your polymer clay beads can be made into gifts or strung onto jewelry that can fill your wardrobe with colorful creations for you to wear anytime.
