Marbled Geometric Necklace

Looking for the perfect necklace to go with the dress you bought at a recent end-of-summer blowout sale? Here’s one that you can make yourself. Choose colours that will match perfectly and avoid paying more for your accessories than you did for the dress!
Materials:
  • Choice of several colours of SOFT polymer clay
  • Choice of several colours of CLASSIC polymer clay
  • Precision knife
  • Acrylic roller for clay
  • 2 different chains
  • Jump rings
  • Varnish for polymer clay
  • Lobster clasp
  • 8 eye pins
  • Modelling tools
  • Round-nose pliers
  • Wire cutters
  • 1 toothpick or large needle
  • Small synthetic flat paintbrush
Instructions:

Step 1: Knead each colour of CLASSIC (firmer formula) and SOFT (softer formula) polymer clay together to ensure colour consistency. Then, blend the royal blue and turquoise clays together to create a marble effect.

Step 2: Using an acrylic roller and precision knife, form two sets of three squares measuring 0.5, 1 and 2 square inches in order to create different beads that will go well together. Then, form two different size triangles with the marbled and royal blue clay.

Step 3: Use a toothpick or large needle to pierce a hole through each square. You will insert an eye pin through this hole when assembling the beads later on. Then, make a hole in the centre of the base of each of the two triangles, as illustrated.

Step 4: Using a precision knife, cut off the four corners of the top surface of each square. Turn the squares over and cut off the four remaining corners.

Step 5: Once all the beads have been chiseled, place them on a baking sheet and bake at 110°C/230°F for 30 minutes.

Step 6: Let the beads cool for 20 minutes and remove them from the baking sheet. Insert a toothpick into the holes so that you can hold the beads while applying the varnish. Apply the varnish with a small synthetic brush. A thin coat is enough to protect the beads and give them a slightly glossy finish.

Step 7: Let the varnish dry for 30 minutes. Wait approximately 24 hours for the beads to dry completely in order to be able to handle them safely.

Step 8: Once the beads are ready, assemble them by threading each one onto an eye pin. Use the round-nose pliers to form a loop at the end of each pin. Attach the pins together to create a row of 6 beads.

Step 9: To assemble the necklace, cut the more delicate chain into three lengths of 5 inches, 7 inches and 9 inches. Then, cut the sturdier chain, which you will use to close the necklace (the length of this chain depends on the desired length of the necklace in the illustration, two 10-inch chains were used to create a total length of 20 inches).

Step 10: Attach the chains to the jump rings at each end of the row of beads. Attach the two jump rings to the eye pins located between the two beads at the end of each row.

Step 11: Use a jump ring to attach the sturdier chain to each end of the row of beads.

Step 12: Attach a lobster clasp and jump ring to the ends of the sturdier chain to close the necklace.
