First you start off with sculpey you can find it at most craft stores sometimes at Walmart.

I don't have a picture of it but all I did was put a little sculpey on the dread and shaped it with my hands. Still has my hand prints on them lol. Made some bones, beads, and sculls as well.

Bake for the time specified and paint and add some accents and BAM!

Nice! Do you have any closer pics of the dreadrings finished?
Here some pics for you. I did not spend alot of time on them I wanted them to look organic. But it would not be hard to get a lot of detail on them.

As you can see I made them different sized for top and mid dreads.

I tried to freehand some face huggers on a few. They look ok but could look better it I spent more time.

Actually, I wouldn't downplay them by calling them "cheap". They look nice. I commissioned my friend Amy to sculpt a set of dread rings out of Sculpey, and this is how they came out:

One nice thing about Sculpey is that it comes in all sorts of different colors. Amy used a gold-colored Sculpey for these dread rings, so I didn't even have to paint them.

You could try forming the dread rings on a wooden dowel, instead of using your bare hands, and then you wouldn't get fingerprints all over them. You can also experiment with putting various textures on them.
