This workshop includes everything you need to make handmade beads using Sculpey clay. You can choose the color, size, and texture from my supplies. Bring any other beads from home to create something unique and personal. Whether you decide to make the beads into a bracelet, a bookmark, or add them to a burlap art project, you will appreciate the simplicity and the creative process.

I started making beads many years ago to add to my burlap art projects. I was amazed at how soothing the bead-making process was, replacing my anxiety with focusing on creating something smooth and beautiful.

Thanks for pink days.

Making beads is as easy as rubbing the clay between your palms to make a snake. Then you chop it up into the same-sized pieces. Next, you roll each piece between your finger and thumb, making it round, oval, or whatever you want. You make a hole through the center using a toothpick before putting it into the toaster oven to cook for 15 – 20 minutes.

Here’s a quick video of the process. It’s easy peasy!
