This project is not sponsored, but the supplies used are from the Martha Stewart Crafts Jewelry line from Plaid, which I received free as compensation for another post.
With all of the goodies I found in the Martha Stewart Crafts Jewelry kit I received, I just couldn’t stop making stuff! Once I figured out how to properly use the polymer clay and silicon molds, I started thinking more about different types of pendants that I could feasibly wear to work. I’m not all that comfortable wearing owl earrings or having a seahorse dangling around my neck while meeting clients, so I tried to stick to the basic shapes – flowers and leaves.
Here’s what I came up with!
I started by squashing some green polymer clay into a leaf silicon mold. Both the clay and the mold are from the Martha Stewart Crafts Jewelry line. The clay is actually a clay and activator combo. Once you mix the two together, you have a fairly short time to work with it, and it takes 24 hours to set. Remember to poke a hole in the clay before it sets!
Connect the string of green beads together to form a circle and fold in half. Connect up the necklace chain to both ends of the folded strand of beads to create a “double” strand. Hook up the pendants to jump rings and connect them to the bottom of the two green strands. I made a white leaf, a green leaf and grabbed a bead from a another strand that came in the supplies.
Finish up by adding a lobster clasp to the back of the chain and Voila, you’re done!
