It is sometimes difficult to find just the right spacer beads for my jewelry designs so I have developed my own technique in making these fun rondelles.

I shared my original idea on my blog some time ago but I found that to be too time consuming and tedious so I have since learned how to streamline my production by eliminating several steps and make them in half the time.

With this tutorial, you will learn how to make these versatile spacer beads in any size or color you want using special templates you form from clay.

This lesson consists of 22 pages broken down into 35 simple to follow steps and includes more than 55 photos for easy and clear instruction. It is very simple to follow with detailed instructions so even a clay beginner can follow them. You do not need to invest in any fancy equipment or tools for this lesson as I have provided instructions for making your beads with or without a pasta machine and using objects that are easily available.

As a bonus, I have included instructions on how to make round, coin and cube shaped spacer beads as well as how to add some rich pearl and metallic colors with mica powders.

Materials & Tools Needed:
Polymer clay (any brand)
Armor All
bead piercing tools (poultry lacers)
acrylic roller or brayer
large shaped cutter (optional)
tissue blade
pasta machine (optional)
bamboo skewers
small piece of plexiglass or similar
graph paper
clear plastic page protectors
parchment deli paper
smooth ceramic tile for baking on
baking pan with foil or lid (optional)
baking soda
oven thermometer
mica powders (Pearl Ex, etc.) (optional)
