Take a small amount of yellow and green clay to mix them up completely. Now we get the clay of jade green. PS: You could adjust the amount of the two clays to achieve the color you want. The amount is adjustable.
Step 2: Mix Up & Change the Shape
Mix up the clay completely and then rub it into the shape of a strip as the image shows.
Step 3: Cut and Make Shape
Cut the long clay into small clays of different lengths with scissors. These small and different clays will be rubbed into water drop’s shape by our hands. Remember to reserve a long one to be used as the stem of the succulent plants.

Make a T-Pin and make T-Pin go through the small hole. Then use pliers to make a small circle and get rid of the extra part.

Clip the necklace and make it through the hole of the wooden base. Now the wooden base is connected with the necklace.
Step 10: Color
Take a small amount of pink pigment and adjust it well.
