  • Metal leaf adhesive and sealer
  • 20 gauge wire

Instructions:

  1. Shape a small ball of clay into an egg. Make a bead hole with needle tool.

  2. Find two skewers the same size as your gems. Leaving the bead on the needle tool, press the flat ends of the skewers on opposite sides at the same time.

  3. Turn the bead and repeat as many times as you like. You may need to gently reshape the clay. Do that while it’s still on the needle tool. Bake the clay according to the package directions.
