Beadworks Dough

Really tiny beads are good for bracelets and bigger ones make terrific pendants for necklaces.

Steps for making 'Beadworks Dough':-

  1. Mix the flour, salt, cornstarch in a bowl. Slowly add the water, mixing until the dough holds a shape. (You may not need all the water.)
  2. Knead the dough in the bowl by pushing it down and away from you and folding it over.
  3. Roll small pieces of dough between your hands to make beads.
  4. Poke a toothpick through each bead to make a hole. Take out the toothpick and allow the beads to dry. Drying time depends on the size of your beads. Small beads will dry in a few hours; larger ones will need to sit overnight.
  5. Paint the beads. When the beads are dry, you can string them to make jewelry.


  1. 3/4 cup (.18 l) flour
  2. 1/2 cup (.12 l) salt

  4. 1/2 cup (.12 l) water


  1. Measuring cups
