DIY Necklace!!

Standard

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 🙂

About Nima

Hi, I am very delighted that you stopped by! Welcome to Creative ME!!! I 'm a wife to an amazing hubby, an Asian(Indian) native, nomad for a while and finally settled @ The Grand Canyon State in 2012. Our first 2 months of accommodation was in a hotel and that's when everything started. You must be wondering HOW? I was introduced to HGTV and started reading craft blogs. Ohh yes, PINTERST toooo and that is my fav! Well, inspired from these places, I started to DIY on budget and decorate our home. Whenever I posted pics of my projects on Facebook, everyone loved and gave many positive comments. Some of them also said I should not look for a job, instead start a blog or sell some of my projects ;) They thought I was doing something very cool!! That was a great motivation and I decided to tickle my creative senses to tame the stress monster ;-) And then, one day here is my blog , where I share my ideas and projects with friends, family and all other aspiring DIY-er's :) And if you like my blog, please come back and also don't forget to tell your friends :) Lastly, if you have a fun and functional craft or project or even a simple recipe I want to hear….please let me know and I can feature, down the line we will make Creative ME to WE..;)
