Hello Girl Creative followers. It’s Amy and I am so thrilled to be here today sharing my first guest contributing post! I share all kinds of projects that make my heart go pitter patter at Delineate Your Dwelling. Today, I will be sharing how to make a lovely Ribbon Necklace!
. Polymer Clay
. Wide Decorative Ribbon + Narrow Ribbon (Bakers Twine is what I used)
. Jewelry Rings
. Jewelry 2″ Eye Pins
I read the directions for my polymer clay and preheated the oven. My clay took 30 minutes to bake at 275F. Then, I started rolling small balls that would become my beads. I decided on a basic layout of the beads and cut my ribbon to the length I thought would be ideal for this necklace.
Do not forget to put small holes in your beads BEFORE baking!
Once, my beads were done in the oven I got to work on stringing them onto the 2″ eye pins. You fish the eye pins through so that the straight end is at the bottom. I then using small small jewelry pliers to bend the ends into tiny circles to keep the beads from falling off.
Once my beads were all on the baker’s twine, I tied my wider ribbon and the baker’s twine to the jewelry rings to form the actual necklace.
I love the simple ribbon tie in the back.
This entire project took me an hour and a half total and that included bake time!
I am ready to start making these in every color, what about you? What color would be your favorite?
I’d love for you to stop by Delineate Your Dwelling and say hello!
