I made this bracelet the first time around without too much trouble, I used sculpey and used a ready made green gem for the gem in the middle.
However, when I tried to remake it as the first one ended up breaking on me (not because it wasn't cured enough, I ended up splitting it too much after trying to wiggle my hand through it to put it on.) What would you recommended when making this bracelet to be sure it keeps its shape while the scupley is baking? What I mean by that is when I previously would put the scupley in to cook it, it cured decently, however the bracelet wouldn't come out with a circumference the way a regular bracelet would. I tried to keep it in a circular shape as best I could but I guess I must've shifted the clay when I would check on it.
And as a bonus question: Are there any other materials that I could use to make it without having to go back to scupley? I don't mind using sculpey again, as it worked for me before but I'm just curious.
