DIY Faceted Beads From Air Dry Clay


Add new dimensions to your jewelry collection with these surprisingly simple DIY faceted beads from air dry clay by Daria of Kittenhood.

Lately, all the projects I think of are based on air dry clay. Despite having to wait 24 hours for it to dry, I think it’s great to work with. I love that it’s white, like a canvas, and I love how easily sandpaper can alter its look. And that’s how I made these faceted beads.


All you need for this handy tutorial is some air dry clay and a few household materials, like toothpicks, sandpaper, and nail polish, and you’ll be galavanting around in geometric style before you know it!
