Jigsaw Bracelet Project Posted on May 13, 2014

Free Project to print off and keep.

Make a statement with this chunky bracelet. The links are made using our jigsaw cutter. There is no need for any calculations as the links are joined together through a series of jump rings. These enable you to adjust the length of the bracelet to fit your wrist.



Pack of 27.8g of PMC3, 1.5mm spacers and roller, Teflon sheet, paintbrush and water, badger balm, texture mat, Jigsaw cutter, hand drill, sandpaper, 7 or 9mm jump rings and a clasp

You will also need a plastic drinking cup or glass (or similar) to dry the links over, firing and polishing tools


  • Roll the clay out on a piece of Teflon using the spacers and roller
  • Rub some badger balm on the texture mat and press firmly into the clay
  • Use the jigsaw cutter to cut out as many pieces as you can
  • Roll the clay out again taking care you roll it in a shape similar to the jigsaw cutter to create the final and fourth shape.
  • Use a damp paintbrush and a little water to smooth the edges.
  • Lay the glass on its side and rub with some badger balm. This will allow you to re-position the clay whilst wet.
  • Lay the links over the side of the glass to create a slight curve and leave to dry completely.  
  • Drill a hole at either end of each link to allow you to connect the links with the jump rings once fired. Sand any rough edges if needed.

Kiln firing: Fire at 700C for 20 mins. This can be done by running the PMC3 Fast Programme twice.

Torch firing: Fire each link individually. Lay on a piece of kiln pillow to support the link. Heat the piece until it glows a pale orange. Start your timer and fire for about 3 minutes.

Polishing by hand: Support each link on a rubber block and use a stainless steel brush and agate burnisher to polish, 

Polishing in a tumbler: Place in the barrel with 1/3 -1/2 teaspoon of tumbler soap. Cover the piece with water and tumble for 2 hours.
