|Dragon Egg Jewelry by Irit Shalom|
This month Makin's Clay® challenged it's Design Team members to select a Pin from our Tutorials & Techniques Board or our Polymer Clay Inspiration Projects Board and create a project using Makin's Clay® based upon the chosen pin.
Hello my dear crafty friends! Irit is here today and I will show you how to make a fancy jewelry set using Dragon Egg Pinterest tutorial inspiration.
This is my own version of this technique. The original tutorial features foil over the polymer clay. I don't have any foil, or even a scalloped polymer clay cutting wheel. So I worked with metallic leafing and a scalloped clay cutter, but the result is very similar.
Oval clay cutters
Globecraft Enamel and embossing powder adhesive
Gold and silver metallic leafing
Jewelry findings and gold waxed string
Roll half package of black clay with the clay roller to about 1/8" thick.
Add another layer of enamel adhesive and fill with a mix of copper, red gold, and gold leafing as shown. Let the adhesive dry, but do not wait until the clay is dry.
Use the scallop clay cutter, or a scalloped clay cutting wheel, and make a few scalloped strips from the metal covered clay piece.
Roll another piece of black clay and use the Makin's® round clay cutters and two sizes of oval clay cutters to make all pieces shown that will make all three jewelry projects.
Cover the ovals with any glossy glue and use all the scalloped pieces to cover both sides of the ovals.
Arrange the necklace using the largest oval piece, larger circles and smaller round beads.
Make the earrings with smaller ovals and small circles as shown. Now arrange the key chain with the last two beads.
