I’ve never worked with clay as I always assumed it would take a great deal of artistic skill. Ends up it doesn’t. Once I started I got hooked! Its so simple to do and the clay is very forgiving. You make simple shapes then bake them at 275 for 15 minutes and its done. You can coat your items with any shiny stuff you want and paint on any other flourishes. I whipped all these up in a matter of minutes each. I made a variety of Halloween jewelry with them… necklaces, pins, key rings etc.
Supplies for Halloween Jewelry
- Polymer Clay (Fimo, Sculpey etc.) (Bake to harden.)
Various Jewelry Items Depending On What Your Making:
- Necklace chains, pin backs, earring, string, barrettes, key rings, etc.
Shape your item into whatever size you wish. Add holes, or metal items if needed for necklaces etc. Bake at 275 degrees 15 minutes for each 1/4″ of thickness. Paint eyes, etc. Add coat of gloss. I used Mod Podge which made a nice slick surface.
Visual Instructions For Each Item
Hello Nancy & Roy! I just wanted to let you know that I featured this project on my blog today. Thanks for participating in the Pin Junkie’s 2yr Blogiversary Link Party (I was a co-host). Hope you have a wonderful day and thanks again for sharing this project!
Thank you so much Alyssa! How kind of you!
Those are adorable! They would make a great craft for a girls’ party!
They would indeed Karen. And they are fast to make even with baking the clay. Bakes up in 15 mintues. Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to comment!
This is adorable! I think the bat is my favorite 🙂
Thank you Kayla! I tend to shy away from these types of things because I’m not artistic in “that way”… sculpting, drawing etc. I was surprised how easy these were. Appreciate you stopping by!
These are just fabulous! Visiting from the 36th Avenue – love these so much and pinning! Have a wonderful weekend!
Why thank you Cindy for taking the time to say so. I see you have a link party… I’ll join in!
