Double Bow Necklace Tutorial, DIY

Use our mold to make similar necklace

You'll need:
  • Polymer clay
  • Cutter
  • Jump rings
  • Jewelry pliers
  • Clasp
  • Chain
  • Oven
  • Pencil 
  • Pin
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 below, 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 is done.
