Measure out your ingredents
1 cup of water
1.5 cup of salt - table salt
1 cup of corn starch
To put the entire necklace together you will need 1 long needle and thread ( color choice is up to you).
Add your water and salt and bring to a boil. I like when the salt has almost dissolved completely. Once you have a good boil turn down the heat and quickly add the cornstarch. Start to stir - then almost like magic the cornstarch will takeover the water and from a sticky paste. Keep stirring.
Spoon a good size of dough out of the cooking pot and add to a mixing bowl ** remember this dough is going to be really hot so do not touch it yet. Add some more corn stach and stir away.
Once the dough has cooled start to mold and shape the dough in your hands. You might have to add more cornstarch to get the right consistency you like.
Now you can start to roll out the little pearls to make your necklace. You can even add some food coloring to make diffrent color pearls - so much fun.
Once you have all your pearls all made out - using a good size needle poke a hole through each pearl. Let them dry for about 48 hours so they get hard. Once dried, you will be able to use needle and thread and sew you pearls together to make your necklace and or bracelet.
Have fun with making all kinds of jewelry - this clay can be molded to make almost anything - and it is so easy to make.
Here I string them both and added some silver chain and claps to the end to give a more fancy look.
Thanks and have fun!
