How to Make Beautiful Polymer Clay Bracelet Tutorials

Image by Sherri Kellberg
I am certain the people who make polymer clay jewelry are artists. That's because what they make  is often drop dead gorgeous.

Vibrant colors, patterns  and even textures are what makes polymer clay jewelry attractive. Shown here are some of my favorite finds.

Hop over to Sherri Kellberg's blog, Beadazzle Me Polymer Clay Jewelry, where she has a slide tutorial on how to make a mokume gane cuff bracelet.

Click on the slide and then hover your mouse over the bottom part of the slides to see the written instructions.  This is her faux hidden magic method.  No idea what the hidden magic technique is?  Check out this tutorial.  It's in French so you'll have to translate it.  One easy way to do so is to use Google's Chrome browser. It detects foreign languages automatically and you can click on the translate button at the top.

This elegant retro inspired bracelet is from the Jewelry and Polymer Clay Tutorials site. What is neat about this tutorial is the use of a bead roller not to form the beads but as a mold to shape them!

The pillow bead bracelet tutorial is yet another stunner. This one is by Lisa Pavelka for AMACO.  Aren't the colors just gorgeous?

Tonja Lenderman's Gothic Tile Bracelet incorporates digital images into the lovely design.

Those of you who like contemporary styles will like the colorful bangle tutorial by maxxev on Craftster. This one will require the use of an extruder.

OMG, all these designs are wonderful! I bought some clay and a pasta roller a long time ago but haven't tried them. I have too many ideas and not enough time!!

I love polymer clay. All those colors! If only there were enough hours in the day, I'd work with it more. :)

A few years back I took a class with Julie Picarello. Her work is just fantastic!
