It’s such a commonplace for girls to wear pendant necklaces that you can see many different kinds of pendant necklaces on the street every day. Then have you ever thought of making a unique one for yourself? Today this tutorial will show you how to make a pair of kaleidoscopic clay pendant necklaces. Enjoy it!
When I first saw them, I was astonished by their random patterns and mixed colors. They are stunning and the design is so impressive! Are you attracted by them as well? Ok, let’s see how to make them together!
Materials needed for making the clay pendant necklaces:
Flat nose pliers
Wire cutter pliers
4mm and 6mm silver jump rings
Glass rhinestone cabochons
4mm emerald rhinestone cup chain
Silver chain with a clasp
How to make the beaded pendant necklaces:
Step 1: Use the clay to make a thick teardrop pendant. Clip off a small section of rhinestone cup chain, and press it firmly into the clay.
Step 2: Clip off another piece of rhinestone cup chain, and press it firmly at the top of the clay. Then press in three jump rings and decorate them with seed beads and rhinestone cabochons.
Step 3: Once finished decorating the clay with beads, trim the outside of it with the rhinestone cup chain again. You can trim the bottom with rhinestones and the top with seed beads. Make sure everything is firmly embedded.
Step 4: Use a sewing needle to make a hole through the clay pendant, and make some dot decorations on the surface of the clay with the needle as well. Then dust the pendant with eyeshadow. It will make the clay super shiny! Bake the clay at 120 degrees for 30 minutes (it depends on the thickness of the clay, you can check periodically while baking), make sure it hardens up. After baking, attach an eye pin to the pendant and make a top loop, then finish the necklace by adding the pendant to the sliver chain.
Step 5: Repeat to make another clay pendant necklace.
Here goes the final look:
Terrific! These shimmering DIY pendant necklaces are fantastic for summer. If you are going to make one, you can customize every pattern to suit your own tastes. Be creative and enjoy your craft!
