|Moroccan Inspired Tassel Pendant by Carole Monahan made with Makin's Clay®|
"Dreaming of Morroco" Pendant
By Carole Monahan
Tassels are EVERYWHERE right now. I thought I would add to the craze with my Moroccan inspired necklace.
Makin's Clay® Black 2 oz
Viva Décor Inka Gold –Platinum
Adirondack inks assorted colors
2 inch Tassel
5 Oval jumprings
Silk cord 24 inches
2 fold over cord ends
Makin's Professional® Ultimate Clay Machine™
Makin's Clay® Professional Tool Kit
Makin's Clay® Floral push mold
Waffle design plunge cutter
Pliers and paint brushes
Fill your push mold *remember less is more! Set the push mold aside to set up.
Roll out the remainder of your 2 oz of clay to setting #2 on your Ultimate Clay Machine™.
Cut out the desired shape. I used a plunge cutter. Make holes to hang your tassel and attach jump rings. Embellish the edge with the detail tool from the professional tool kit.
Add the molded piece onto the flat part. I trimmed sections from the molded piece to better fit on the background. You can use another tip from the professional tools sculpting kit to add more details and to help secure the molded item down. Let dry 24 hours.
Apply the Inka gold paste to the raised areas. I suggest a small short bristle brush to get more details.
Let the paste set and dry before adding the alcohol ink colors with a small detail brush.
Now you are ready to add the tassel with one of your oval jump rings and string the necklace as desired. I used a silver silk cord and a toggle clasp to complete the look.
