This necklace is a very easy do it yourself that can be arranged in several different ways. First thing first you can make it with all your favorite colors, maybe choosing them to fit a particular dress of yours. it’s up to you!
What you will need is 2 packs of polymer clay of your favorite colors, I choose blue and white. Once you have chosen the color of the biggest bead you have to divide the clay in 3 pack, one with 5 strip and a half, one with half strip and one with 2 strips, then take the other polymer clay and take 2 strips and half strips. So you will have: for the biggest ball 5 strips and a half of white, the second bead has 2 strips of white and half of blue, the third one has 2 of blue and half of white. Mix them all together and form 3 beads.
Drill all beads carefully with a stick and put in oven at 120 degress for about 20 minutes. leave them in the oven until they are cold. To help me I put the stick up on 2 glasses, in this way your beads will hang up without damages.
Another suggestion: in case you choose, like me, the white color, do it as your first, otherwise you will risk to get it dirty with the other darker colors.
Once cold, I choose to put these beads on a very thin blue leather string and I think it came out fantastic. I made several others that you can find on my Etsy shop. This is a perfect present for your friends for Christmas! I’m sure they will love it!

As promised here is the second tutorial in which I will show you step by step how to make the berries. They are absolutely one of my favorite decorations on the Christmas tree too.
Come promesso ecco il secondo tutorial in cui vi mostrero passo per passo come realizzare delle bacche. Sono in assoluto una delle mie decorazioni preferite anche sull’albero di Natale.
To realize you will need a piece of wire soft, red polymer clay, tape to cover the stem. First you have to cut 16 pieces of wire more or less the same length.
Per realizzarle vi servirà del fil di ferro morbido, del fimo rosso, del nastro per coprire i gambo. Per prima cosa dovete tagliare 16 pezzi di filo di ferro piu o meno della stessa lunghezza
Add them together and roll them up to a certain point, 10cm more or less. At this point, separated 2 or 3 wires and continue to weave the others, it must seem like a smalltree.
Cover the entire branch with green ribbon. Meanwhile I made 16 small balls with polymer clay, drill a hole and put them in the oven. Once cooked glue them on top of each branch and cover with enamel.
Uniteli insieme ed arrotolateli fino ad un certo punto. A questo punto separate 2 o 3 fili e continuate ad intrecciare gli alberi, dovrà sembrare una specie di ramo.
Coprite tutto il ramo con il nastro verde. Ne frattempo realizzate dell palline di fimo rosso, praticate un foro e mettetele in forno. Una volta cotte incollatele in cima ad ogni ramo e copritele con dello smalto.
