There are so many fun ways to braid your hair, or to use braiding to create beautiful jewelry or other crafts. I just love the texture and beautiful and interesting shapes that braiding creates.

Years ago (before I had ever picked up polymer clay) I saw this tutorial by Delighted Momma for making beautiful braided bracelets and I saw how simple it was to do. In fact, I think that this tutorial was one of the reasons that I went out and bought clay in the first place.
Polymer clay really is pretty simple to braid, although it does require a little more work than simply braiding hair. And it looks amazing! There are so many fun things you could make with braided clay (I have a lot of projects on my to do list). I made these wreath ornaments, and recently I made these braided clay frames.
