Vid #51: Dried Flower Petals (+) Translucent Polymer Clay (=) Beads that Say, “I’m Thinking of You.”
If you’re anything like me, you probably dry flowers from special events such as weddings, graduations and baby showers. Did you know you can mix bits of the dried flower petals into translucent polymer clay to make beautiful flower beads? Well you can and the results are stunning.
Think of how a close friend would feel if you gave them a bracelet made with flower petals secretly collected from their special day. They would cherish your lovingly made jewelry keepsake piece forever and ever.
Translucent clay is perfect for this kind of project because, after baking, you will be able to see the embedded flower pieces elegantly preserved below the bead surface.
