Guess it's better than being headless...
Fun, simple necklace I designed for a Halloween party. Easy and affordable to make.

Step 1: Stuff
Black Sculpey Polymer Clay
20 gauge Red Copper Wire (in the jewelery making section)
Cookie sheet or glass bake ware
Device of flattening (I used a highlighter)
Waxed Paper (or silicon baking mat if you have one)
Round nose pliers (or other needle nose pliers)
Step 2: Knead & Roll
Knead that ball of clay for 2 minutes, until it is nice and soft and flexible.
This would be a good time to preheat your oven to 275 degrees.
Now lay out your baking mat, or sheet of waxed paper
Roll the clay out into a snake, then roll flat with your Highlighter (or whatever device you have chosen)
I try to aim for the width of a quarter and about that thickness.
Don't worry about being perfect, little deviations and deformities just make it more fun.
Step 3: Slice and Dice
Use the knife to gently lift the clay off the rolling surface.
One at a time place the strips on top of each other in an"X"shape and press lightly on the center.
