Lets make a Bracelet ... With Skulls!!! A Tutorial!

Hello there fellow crafters...I am here to show you how to make a super cool polymer clay bracelet featuring Sugar Skulls from Bombshell.
 roll a small ball of polymer clay...about the size of a robin egg and put it on the flat side of an acrylic block. 
flatten the ball with another block,,, using the side with no grid on it

smash the stamp into the clay between two blocks. you can add baby powder here to make sure the stamp wont stick... but it doesn't stick usually.

this is the result

cut it out with a craft knife.
 flatten a piece of polymer clay, I used white, about one inch wide and long enough to go around your wrist.

I applied pearl ex to make it shiny... then I baked it to cure the clay around a round shape 
 I applied pearl ex to the skulls and decorated them with rhinestones and glitter
after adding more rhinestones and glitter... here is my result!

super fun and gets comments everywhere I go

the bracelet... in action!

another view!
Thanks so much for stopping by to see my creation and I hope that you will be inspired to take your stamps on a field trip away from the paper... you never know where it may lead you!


  1. Omg this is so cool. I keep looking at clay at the craft stores and then never buy it but now heck yeah I will be!!!! Thank you so much. Plus my daughter can't wear nickel and loves the sugar skulls so this will be amazing to make her. Eeeeeek. So excited!
