Extrude approximately 30g of Persimmon Makin’s Clay® using the Makin’s Professional® Ultimate Clay Extruder® and Disc #3.
Using a photo of a Celtic knot as a reference, begin shaping your knot with the extruded strand of clay.
When the knot is complete, use a smooth flat surface (I used a piece of acrylic - but you could also use a book, etc.) to gently push down and just flatten the top of the knot.
Add to the “faux hammered metal” effect by using the large ball tool from the Professional Clay Tools® to impress indentations on all sides of the knot.
Paint the knot with gold paint and let dry 24 hours.
Add jump ring and cording, with jewelry closure, to the pendant.
