Polymer {clay} necklace

Have you seen some of the adorable rose necklace & earrings out there?? I have purchased a few of them here & there, but have always wanted to make my own. When my cute blog friend, Lindsay (love her name, by the way), shared a tutorial for making them, I knew I had to give it a try!

So here it goes-
-polymer clay (I purchased mine at Michaels)
-necklace chain (from Michaels)
-pendent clasp (from Michaels)
-razor blade or box cutter
-hot glue gun (or Krazy glue)

Roll 6 small balls of clay, then flatten them with your fingers.
Fold one ball in half, I ended up rolling it to make it tighter for the center piece.
Then wrap each flattened piece around the center part that you just rolled up, creating the petals.
Cut the end of your flower off, depending how big you want your rose.
Bake at 275 degrees for 15 minutes
Attach your freshly baked rose to the pendent of your necklace with hot glue (or Krazy glue)
I decided to make some earrings as well--surprise, surprise. :)
Of course I had to buy several colors, because that's how I like to do these around here. :) Can't wait to make more!

I LOVE how creative you are! What a darling necklace {and earrings} you made! I love yellow. Great job! And I loved the post about Kristen Duke and her photography! I actually have heard of that book before, on one of my friend's blogs. It sounds like she has a lot of great tips on taking beautiful pictures. Love your craft blog!

I always thought polymer clay was such a fun medium to work with. I remember when making beads was super popular when I was a teenager :)

Your yellow roses turned out beautifully. I love them! Thanks for sharing.

Enjoy your week!

Wow, I had no idea how easy it is (or how easy you make it look), to make these necklaces. I think I'll have to give it a try very soon.

I grabbed some polymer clay awhile back and have yet to make anything with it. Saving this post for a great reference. Thanks for the tut and I love the color clay you used!

I totally want to do this. I made a rose out of playdough when playing with my son, but it was brown so, ya, not a keeper. (Why do they make brown playdough anyway?) Love the yellow! Thanks for linking up with DIY under $5!
