This necklace features a clay pendant tile that has been coloured several times. I really like how my finished piece looks!
I made my clay tile with Jewelry Clay. I coloured it with metallic rub-ons. A sealing coat of Resin Spray was my final step.
Since I have been working with the Jewelry Clay I have resumed my love of rubber stamping. These stamps have been in my collection for years and this is the first time I have used them.
I stamped my rubber into the rolled out clay and trimmed it to make this tile shape. When the clay was cured I applied metallic wax rub-ons to colour it.
These are the metallic rub-ons I use.
My friend Nancy Donaldson is a wire wrapper. I asked her to add some wire to my tile so it would look more polished. The wire wrapping framed my piece and turned it into something easy to dangle.
I took my new pendant to my stash of sari ribbons. I wanted to see what colours would best accent this pendant.
I was very attracted to the blues and felt they would look great together with the silver.
I used simple jewelry making techniques to make my ribbon a necklace.
Once I attached the pendant with jump rings I decided my pendant tile needed a little more blue, so I added some additional highlighting.
When you make your own pendants they can become any colour you want by following these simple steps.
