Marbled Clay & Tassel Necklace
Say “thank you” in the most stylish way possible with this natural wonder of a necklace. Made from ordinary oven-bake clay and thread, this accessory comes together with the help of a craft clay machine (to get that marbled effect), some jewelry findings and your ever-useful tassel-making skills.
To create marble effect, first tear away small pieces of gold clay and slightly push them into white clay block.
Set craft clay machine to 2.27mm thickness, roll clay through, and fold. Repeat until desired look is achieved, adding more swatches of gold clay if necessary.
Cut two circles using 1” circle clay cutter.
Roll gray granite clay into thin rod and cut two 2” pieces and one ¼” piece. Stack circles on top of each other.
Wrap 2” gray pieces around bottom of circle and trim edges.
Insert eye pin through layers as shown. Bake according to the clay’s packaging instructions and let cool. Tip: Use tip of eye pin to pierce hole through ¼” gray piece before baking, creating a bead for next step.
Use round-nose pliers to loop end of eye pin. Make tassel using thread and feed top tails through ¼” gray bead and looped eye pin. Tie off and trim ends. Optional: Add 1” piece of rolled gold clay underneath gray pieces before baking (previous step). Attach jump ring to top of eye pin and then thread onto necklace chain to complete.
