This is at the top of our polymer clay ideas because there are so many different patterns, shapes and colours you can create. Once you’ve sculpted and baked your beads, turn them into a necklace, bracelet, keyring or a pair of earrings. If you’d like to learn how to create some different patterns and shapes, watch our polymer clay necklace tutorial.
