Polymer Clay Nautilus Bracelet Is Easier Than It Looks

DSCN7062 The beads for this Nautilus Bracelet will be the first project in my Fall Lifetime Learning Institute class. (I don’t know why I thought photographing the bracelet on pink would be a good idea. Oh, well.)
The beads are cut in long triangular shapes from a Skinner blend, lightly stamped with ink on each side, and then rolled into the nautilus shape.
This is a sophisticated look that can be achieved by a beginner. The only tricky part is making the bead hole.
I was inspired to make these beads by Ellie Hitchcock whose Nautilus Necklace is pictured in Making Polymer Clay Beads, by Carol Blackburn.
