I saw these super cute geo necklaces by A Merry Mishap on Bri’s blog a few weeks ago and instantly fell in love with the shapes and colors of these simple necklaces. So naturally I had to figure out a way to make one. The jewelry on Etsy that inspired this post is reasonably priced, so if you’re not into DIY then buying one is a great option. Otherwise, you can round up the materials and make one for yourself. (Plus, you can make a bunch more beads with the rest of the clay and give them to your friends!)
Materials: a plain chain necklace, Xacto knife, toothpick, clay
I used these Sculpey and FIMO clays here which were a bit too soft. Try to see if your craft store has a harder clay- it will make the sculpting process much easier and the edges straighter.
I tried ripping a piece of clay off and rolling it into a ball first, but it made the clay a bit too soft to get clean cut lines, so I cut a chunk off the block and whittled it down from there.
Just cut random pieces off until you like how it looks.
Gently push the toothpick through the middle of the clay, making a hole big enough for your chain to easily pass through.
Bake the clay according to directions on the package. Mine said to bake at 230F for 30 minutes.
When the beads are done cooling, string them onto your necklace. Try experimenting with different color combinations and shapes.
