pink ombré heart bracelet

This sweet Pink Ombré Heart Bracelet is a great statement piece! It is bright and fun, and the best thing about it is that it can be worn all year around!
Step 1

First, click here to download and print the heart template; then cut out the shape. Set it aside for now.

Step 2

Knead your clay so it is soft and easier to work with; then roll it out evenly so it is about ¼" thick.

Step 3

Lay the heart template on top of your clay and use the flexible clay cutter to cut around the shape. Remove excess clay around your shape.

Step 4

Use a toothpick to carefully make a hole on one side. Smooth clay around the hole, as needed, with your fingers or roller.
TIP: Make the hole big enough for a jump ring so you can hang the heart charm from your bracelet.

Step 5

Preheat your oven to 275°. Place your clay mat with your clay heart on a cookie sheet and bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool.

Step 6

Cut a 12" piece of stringing wire.

Step 7

Thread a crimp bead and a small closed jump ring on one end. Fold the wire over and thread back through the same crimp bead. Push the crimp bead so it fits snug against the jump ring. Add a dab of adhesive inside the crimp bead, then crimp the tube with your chain nose pliers.

Step 8

Add one Gold bead, six bright pink beads, five medium pink beads, three light pink beads and another Gold bead to the end.
TIP: Tuck the excess wire extending from the crimp bead (from Step 7) into the first few beads so it is hidden.

Step 9

Repeat Step 7 to add another crimp bead and jump ring to the other end. Be sure to pull the wire so you are closing the other end just above the last bead.

Step 10

Link four more small jump rings to the jump rings at one of the ends of the beaded wire creating the look of a small link chain.

Step 11

On the other end, carefully open the jump ring, add a lobster clasp, then close the jump ring.
TIP: To open and close a jump ring, simply grasp the jump ring on both sides with chain nose pliers and twist the ring open, from side-to-side. Never pull the jump ring which can cause distortion.

Step 12
Finally, attach your heart pendant to the jump ring on the clasp end with a medium jump ring.
