Jasper Stone Faux Metal Bracelet
It’s hard to deny the beauty of Turquoise Jasper stone especially when it’s coupled with antique gold. The bracelet blank for this project is brass covered with of all things, copper clay! The magic transformation comes about when Heirloom Gold Mica powder is applied to the clay before baking. I recently created a pendant to wear with a new summer shirt, which used the same techniques as in the bracelet. The shirt was made with fabric given to me by a good friend. Since I had an extra Jasper Stone, the bracelet seemed like the ideal way to use it. Some clay projects can be quite labor intensive. This one only requires cutting, texturing and arranging the cut clay pieces on the brass bracelet blank.
Before you begin, condition clay.
IMPORTANT NOTE - Setting numbers vary on clay conditioning machines. On my Sculpey machine the thickest setting is 1 and the thinnest is 9.
step 11 - Bake the clay hanging from the coffee mug in a 275 degree oven for 30 minutes.
step 12 - After the clay has cooled, brush it with Future Floor Polish for a bright and protective shine.
