Homemade Jewelry

Jewelry doesn't always have to come from a jewelry store. A lot of things such as necklaces and bracelets can be made from kits or from things you find at home.

Materials and Tools:

molding clay (such as Fimo or Model Magic)
thin wooden dowel
plastic knife

Steps

1. Roll the clay into a snake figure.

2. Take two pieces of the rolled clay and twist them together.

3. Wrap the twisted clay onto a thin wooden dowel and roll it back and forth until the clay is smooth.

4. With a plastic knife, cut and roll the clay off the stick. This will give you a bead with the hole in place, ready to place on a necklace, bracelet or earrings.
