Introduction: DIY Polymer Clay Necklace


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.

Step 4:

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.

Step 6:

Bake at 275 degrees for 15 minutes

Step 7:

Attach your freshly baked rose to the pendent of your necklace with hot glue (or Krazy glue)

Step 8:

Of course I had to buy several colors, because that's how I like to do these around here. :) Can't wait to make more!
