My husband says I am into “Polydiction”. Hehe, yes, Polymer Clay addiction.
You can create beautiful pieces and when it comes to Jewelry, something that absolutely match your outfit.
So, if you are new to polymer clay and not confident yet, this easy tutorial will kick-start the fun 😉
All you need is a ball of matching clay, matching beads(plastic, acrylic, glass or anything on hand) and some fishing line(@Walmart)
If you are new to beading on fishing line this is a great tutorial on how to add clasp to the necklace
Lets get started:
Firstly, decide on the size of the necklace. I wanted a 28″ – 30″ necklace. Since this is a combination of bead and poly discs, you approx need an equal number of beads and poly clay discs.
Preparing the discs. Make tiny balls of clay(approx 40) and press gently between your thumb and index finger and you will have flattened clay(looks like disc). Then, using a tooth pick or a needle make an indent the center.
I use Sculpey, so baked it @ 275 F (130 C) for 20 mins.
Lastly, using fishing line, bead the baked discs and the beads and a pretty necklace is ready 🙂
Isn’t it super easy and fun to make??
Hope you enjoyed the tutorial.
TGIF n Happy weekend!!
