Yes, you can make jewelry out of sand. Here’s how.
1/2 cup cold water
1/3 cup corn starch
2/3 cup of sand
food coloring (or icing coloring)
non-stick sauce pan
dental floss or thin twine
Combine water, cornstarch and sand in a bowl and mix well. Evenly divide mixture into several smaller bowls and add coloring. Cook each in a nonstick saucepan over medium low heat, stirring constantly until mixture is thickened, about 1-2 minutes. Transfer to separate bowls and allow them to cool. Then roll out and cut into shapes or into beads. Push a tooth-pick through the center of each bead and set in a warm, dry play to harden. Should take a day or so. Use dental floss to string into necklaces and bracelets or glue to barrettes or headbands.
