Clay Necklace
inspired by this ceramic necklace

Shape template
Polymer clay, various colors
Rolling pin
Clay tools
Acrylic gold paint
Leather cording
Parchment paper

1. Turn on the oven to 275° F. Pinch off a piece of clay and roll out until about 1/8″ thick. I mixed a pinch of white and blue clay, with tiny bits of pink.

2. Place the template on top of your clay and cut out the shape of your clay necklace piece.

3. Poke holes into the top corners on the clay piece.

4. Line a baking pan with parchment paper and place your clay pieces on to the paper. Bake the pieces in the oven for about 25 minutes, then take out, and allow to cool completely. Once cooled, paint your design onto your clay piece.

5. Cut a 30″ strand of leather cording (or whatever your desired length may be). Insert each end of the cording through each hole, and double knot to secure.

This necklace is simple enough for the kids to make for Mother’s Day. It would also be fun to gather some friends and make this necklace together. Grab a bottle of wine, some cheese and crackers, and call it a girls’ night! I could definitely use of one of those.
