Have you ever made Clay Jewelry?
Its super fun and super easy to do!
Last week was my daughters 4th birthday party and she needed a chic treat to share with her friends. A bit of brainstorming and viola- a little piece of personalized clay jewellery for each child! The girls got necklaces, and the boys a little keychain (or zipper pull).
Here is what you’ll need to create these clay accessories-
Polymer Clay, Letters (I used American Crafts chipboard thickers), small round cookie cutter, rolling pin, parchment or wax paper, Mod Podge dimensional magic, scissors, jump rings, jewellery accessories (I used May Arts String Beads, 1/2″wrinkled silk, and lobster claw clips), cookie sheet.
How To Make Clay Initial Jewelry:
1. Sandwich a hunk of clay between two sheets of parchment. Use the rolling pin and squash it out.
2. Use the cookie cutter to cut out the pendant shape. I used the inside of a doughnut cutter.
3. Press a jump ring into the edge of the pendant, and cover with a small strip of clay to secure. Bake in 275 deg oven for 15 mins. (follow pkg. directions).
4. Apply an initial of choice. Use Mod Podge to seal the letter. Allow to dry.
5. Attach string breads, key ring etc.
The initial jewelry made the perfect party favour.
They would also be a great party craft for older children.
The children loved these clay monogram pendants and keychains, a big party hit!
