Hi!  My name is Lindsay, I blog over at Southern Lovely.

Have you seen some of the adorable rose necklace & earrings out there?? I have purchased a few of them here & there, but have always wanted to make my own. When my cute blog friend, Lindsay , shared a tutorial for making them, I knew I had to give it a try!

So here it goes-

Step 1:

Gather materials

-polymer clay (I purchased mine at Michaels)
-necklace chain (from Michaels)
-pendent clasp (from Michaels)
-razor blade or box cutter
-hot glue gun (or Krazy glue)

Step 2:

Roll 6 small balls of clay, then flatten them with your fingers.

Step 3:

Fold one ball in half, I ended up rolling it to make it tighter for the center piece.

Then wrap each flattened piece around the center part that you just rolled up, creating the petals.

Step 5:

Cut the end of your flower off, depending how big you want your rose.

How do you attach the pendant to thenecklace? Do you make a loop hole?

You can make a loop hole with plyers on some thin wire. Or you could go to your local craft store and they should have something called eyepins or headpins.

I don't have that colored clay, so can I just knead in some food coloring?

Yes, that may work, or paint, or maybe embossing powders, or use a different color. Even white would be pretty! Mix colors of the clay together, do whatever. Remember, if everyone has exactly the same things as everyone else, we all stop being unique.
