Introduction: DIY Clay Birthday Necklace

Picture of DIY Clay Birthday Necklace

Hello everyone! I am doing a tutorial on how to make clay birthday/birthstone necklaces. These are really cute and meaningful, but also very inexpensive. Show me if you did one!!!

Step 1: What You Need!

Picture of What You Need!

1.) polymer clay 2.) jump ring 3.) small charm or gem (optional) 4.) black pen. 5.) toothpick. 6.) chain or string (not pictured)

Step 2:

Take some clay and roll it into a sphere, the squish it so that it is flat. Make sure it's not too thin, but thin enough to fit the jump ring through it. I prefer lighter colors, but darker colors work as well, as you can see in the picture. (Ps, you don't need three circles, I was just using color examples :) )

Step 3:

Poke a hole in the top of the circle.

Step 4:

Write the person's name in pen on the bottom of the front. You can also do it like I did, and use random words. ;) also a very important thing to do is write on it BEFORE you cook it!!!

Step 5:

Allow to dry for about 20 seconds before starting the back. I just hung mine on a jewelry stand with a toothpick. :)

Step 6:

Now, once your little bead is dry, you'll be working in the back. This is where you will put they're date of birth. I put some pictures of different ways you can write it.

Step 7:

Now all you have to do is cook it, place the jump ring and charm on, and attach to a necklace. Enjoy!!
