Once you’ve baked the polymer clay, it’s easy to add color to the exterior of the beads with paint, nail polish, or gold leaf. a b 1 Break off a piece of polymer clay that is approximately the size of the bead you want to make. Roll the clay in your palms until it warms up and becomes malleable. To make a donut bead like the one shown here, roll the clay into a sphere and then flatten the sphere on two sides with a drinking glass or other flat, even surface. a 2 Push a plastic straw through the center of the clay to create a hole.

Beading needles are long, thin needles used with delicate stringing materials and small beads. english beading needles look similar to a sewing needle, except for their smaller eye and thinner body. hand-sewing needles are used to embroider or embellish details and can sometimes be used as an easier alternative to beading needles. We also often use these needles when using embroidery thread to connect strands of chain or beads. wire needles have a larger, flexible eye that flattens when threaded through a thin bead.

Cut the wire, leaving a tail poking out of the bead. With chain-nose pliers, fold the wire at a right angle above the bead. a 2 With the round-nose pliers, hold the end of the tail and bend the wire around toward the bead, creating a loop. The size of the loop will depend on which part of the nose of the round-nose pliers you use, as well as how long your wire tail is, so adjust the size according to the component you are attaching the loop to. Snip off any excess wire using clippers. b b TECHNIQUES 35 SECURING A CRIMP BEAD Bead stringing is used to create long strands of beads with bead wire or thread.
