DIY Turquoise Clay Necklace

I could no longer resist the lure of the polymer clay. Am I the last blogger to use this stuff? Probably. That's pretty much my M.O.

But I saw this necklace (via Live and Enliven) and instantly loved it ... but wanted it in turquoise. It reminded me of some recent projects I've seen (like this one) so I went to Hobby Lobby with a screaming Henry that same day.

You will need:
  • Oven bake clay in the color of your choice (there is an overwhelming array)
  • Razor blade or sharp knife
  • Jewelry chain - I went with silver. You could even do leather cord.
  • Toothpick
Step 1: Roll the clay into small balls. You'll need to stretch it and loosen it a bit to get it going.

Step 2: Cut edges with razor blade. You want some sharp edges and funkiness to the shape.

Step 3: Poke a hole through the center with a toothpick.

Step 4: Bake according to package directions.

Step 5: Thread the chain through the beads and cut the chain to desired length.

I also made a small pair of earrings. Same preparation (don't poke a hole though) and then I glued an earring backing on with E6000 glue. I love how Wilma Flintstone-esque it is!
