Flower Necklace with Air Dry Clay

Handmade jewelry is  a new adventure for me and I am enjoying the journey.  More so because I get to work with Creative Paperclay® air dry modelling material.  This product is so easy to handle , dries quickly and creates such light weight items.  It is a perfect medium for making jewelry.


It is my turn over at the Creative Paperclay® blog to post as a Designer on the Design Team.  There I give full instructions as to how I actually made the  necklace. Here I can tell you what I used and give you a general idea of how I made it.

I used:
Creative Paperclay® air dry modelling material
A silicone mould from Martha Stewart (Blooms)
9 jump rings
1 eye pin
1 repurposed chain necklace
jewelry pliers and wire cutters
Smoosh enamel paint, and nail polish.



I rolled small bits of the Creative Paperclay® into balls and filled the moulds.  I let the blooms set for a few minutes before I removed them from the mould.  The flowers were left to dry over night, after which I sanded and trimmed all the extra bits.  I used some more clay to adhere some jump rings to create charms.  I cut the necklace.  I attached the charms which I had painted and given a top coat of clear sealer (Nail polish).
