In this last few days I have experimented a little bit with polymer clay. I really like the simplicity of this shape i made, and i like to share this easy project with you. What you need is simply a pack of black polymer clay and a wood stick, I used one of take away sushi 🙂
I used the entire black pack, I rolled it in my hands to make it softer and then I created a strip as you see in the picture.
I put the stick over the clay and I started rolling. In this way the clay rolled over the stick as a big skewer. I did that until the clay joined itself completely. Once done, I cut of the border with a knife and I removed the stick from inside the clay. It left a hole where the string will pass through.
I bent it and put it into the hot oven (120 degrees) for about 30 minutes. Once cooled I inserted the string and closed it with 2 lovely hearts. I really love to bring this necklace short but long too so, I did not cut the string, I just closed it with a bow.
This project is quite easy, and can be done in several colors. Also mixing some beads could be interesting. In case you want to buy it It is available on my etsy shop.

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!

To make this necklace you will need a thin gold chain and a gold-plated 0.8mm wire. First of all cut the chain to the right length for your neck, cut few pieces of gold thread from 3 to 7cm. Fold these pieces in half and roll every ends. Wedge them in the necklace, without an order and in a non-symmetrical way. To clsoe the necklace I’ve used a simple clasp. If you like you can still enrich the necklace using some charms but I liked it in this simple way.
Per fare questa collana avrete bisogno di una catena dorata sottile e di un filo dorato 0.8mm. Una volta tagliata la catena per una lunghezza giusta per il vostro collo, tagliate dei pezzetti di filo dorato dai 3 ai 7cm. Piegate questi pezzetti a metà e arrotolate le estremità. Fatto questo incastrateli nella collana, senza un ordine e accavallati in modo non simmetrico. Io ho chiuso con un semplice moschettone. Potete ancora arricchire la collana aggiungendo dei charms ma a me piaceva semplice in questo modo.
If you like it you can buy it on my Etsy shop
