Metal And Clay Diamond Cuff Bracelet
Pairing up clay with shiny metal can result in interesting jewelry like this concave silver metal and clay cuff bracelet. I mixed silver leaf foil with the Pomegranate and Black clay to add more metallic flecked accents. The template design and Silhouette cut file for this project are included with the pdf download. You'll find the instructions below designated for Silhouette Curio (SC) users and craft knife (CK) users. Instructions without initials apply to both crafters.

This project can be cut with the Silhouette Curio machine, the Cameo 3, and other machines. Download the cut file above that's right for you or the pdf file which includes instructions and the template.
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 10 - CK - Cut out the diamond shapes and the bracelet outline. Use the card stock as a stencil and cut out the clay.
step 17 - Bake the bracelet in a 275 degree oven for 30 minutes.
step 18 - Drop the project in cold water to allow it to cool. The cold water will give extra shine to the finished piece.
step 19 - Sand the surface with 600 then 1000 grit paper under running water then buff the clay with a soft cloth or a buffing machine.
