The peanut butter and jelly necklaces are a unique twist on the classic friendship necklace, and are really fun and adorable to wear. They are surprisingly fast and simple to make, and I'm sure the person you give one of these to will appreciate it forever.
Let's get started!
Step 1: Ingredients
* Brown clay
* Light brown clay (for peanut butter)
* Purple or red clay (for jelly)
* Jump rings
* Some sort of string/wire if you wish to string the charms as a necklace
Step 2: Making the Bread
First, take out a couple small balls of tan clay. Then, flatten them out to a thickness of about 2 1/2 millimetres (about 1/4 of a centimetre).
All you have to do now is take a small knife and cut the shape of your bread out. (bread shape differs, I find it is easiest to use the generic bread form, as shown in the fourth picture below.
TO MAKE THE CRUST:
Pinch off a bit of brown clay and roll it into a thin, snake-like tube.
Now, drape the tube around the sides of the bread base until it completely surrounds it.
Step 3: Adding the Fillings
The shape you want the peanut butter and jelly to be in will differ, but I think it looks cool to slightly bend the paper thin piece so it looks like it has been spread on the bread.
After you've laid *both* of the fillings on the bread how you like, you'll want to insert a jump ring in the top middle of the bread slice.
Step 4: Enjoy!
I hope you and your friend, (or friend/love buddy) enjoy these charms.
Happy Valentine's Day!
