DIY: Polymer clay bow necklace

It's so easy to make this charming Lolita style necklace, just read on for the tutorial!

You will need:
  • Polymer clay
  • Cutter
  • Jump rings
  • Jewelry pliers
  • Clasp
  • Chain
  • Oven
  • Pencil 
  • Pin

 Follow the steps below:

You might want to lay out wax paper so the clay won't stick on your surface first. Anyway, roll out your polymer clay into a long log and divide into four. Roll out each one and flatten.

Pinch the sides like pictured above, and then pinch both sides together. Pinch two of those, and then assemble them like so... whew, that's a lot of pinching. Be careful not to ruin the folds!

Next take a small bit of clay, roll it out and flatten it like in the first picture. Wrap it around your bow, cut the excess and flatten it a bit. That's it - you have your bow.

To make holes, it helps to put a pencil or any barrel shaped object inside - it's used to hold the shape. Poke out your circle per usual.

Bake your clay according to the directions on the package. Let it cool, varnish (if you want) and attach your jump rings and chain on it. Necklace done!
