I love making these beads! It is SO relaxing and forgiving. If you need a stress reliever, give this a try. There's something about working with your hands that can calm worry and anxiety. This technique is particularly fun because you don't need any special tools or equipment. All it requires is wooden skewers (or toothpicks), 2 or 3 or more (your preference) of polymer clay and an oven. You can adapt the size to your preference and there's really no way to do this wrong. It's kid friendly too! My young grandkids help me make the long, skinny rolls, or snakes, as they like to call them.
