We are so excited to have Sam, from Bromeliad, back again to guest post for us today with clay jewelry ideas! Please show Sam some love by visiting her awesome blog and keep in touch with her on Twitter and Pinterest.
When you think of clay jewelry ideas I’m sure this lips necklace wasn’t the first thing that came to your mind. This fun necklace is inspired by a $400 Lanvin design, which has since been knocked off far and wide. But none of the knockoffs will look as cool as your own DIY version of the trend. This is definitely one of the quirkiest clay jewelry ideas you will come across, so have fun with it and read on to create!
Clay Jewelry Ideas DIY Lips Necklace Supplies:
- Sculpey Clay
- Chunky Dark Chain (With a lobster claw connector or use ribbon)
- 12mm Pearl Beads
- 8mm Pearl Beads
- Red Acrylic Craft Paint
- Mod Podge
- E-6000 Glue
- Black Ribbon and Two Hematite Jewelry Connectors (optional)
Step 1. To begin, create a template. I have poor sculpting abilities, so after several lip fails, I looked online and found a lot of lips templates for a photobooth. I traced one directly off my iPad screen onto a piece of paper and cut it out.
Step 3. Before you bake the clay, try out your pearl teeth for fit. You will probably have to open up the “mouth” a bit. You want the pearls to easily fit in the space.
Step 5. Paint your lips red.
Step 6. Apply a sealant.
Step 8. Glue the chain to the back of the necklace
Step 10. Wear a permanent smile.
