Note: protect your
work surface by taping wax paper to the table or counter.
1. Work a piece of green clay about the size
of a half dollar in your hand until soft. Add small bits of
white clay - working into green but not completely - so streaks
of white show in the clay. Roll out the clay to about a 4”
square about 1/4” thick.
2. Use a paper towel tube as a cookie cutter or a small glass.
Cut out circle with plastic knife. Use a drinking straw to
cut away a small center circle from the middle of clay pendant.
Take pattern and cut out. Lay on top of clay circle and trim
clay to spiral shape. Remove excess clay. Make hole at top
of pendant with toothpick for stringing. Place pendant on
a cookie sheet in the oven - 275 degrees for about 15 min.
(follow package instructions)
4. Optional: For a glossy finish, paint a coat of varnish
over entire pendant. Let dry.
5. Beading: Cut a 36” length nylon filament. Fold filament
in half. Insert folded loop through top hole in pendant. Bring
filament ends through loop, creating a Lark’s Head knot.
Add e beads on each length of nylon filament. Knot necklace
ends securely. Thread filament ends back through several beads.
