Roll white Makin’s Clay® with clay roller to about 1/8” thick.
Place one floral texture sheet over half of rolled clay, gently press and roll with roller to transfer texture. Repeat on other half with a different floral texture sheet.
Use 60mm round cutter from 4 piece set to cut 1 circle. Cut 2 with 40mm round cutter from 3 piece set. Cut 2 using 30mm round clay cutter.
Use 40mm cutter to cut center from largest circle, offsetting from center of circle as shown.
Use 20mm round cutter to cut offset centers from remaining circles.
Cut one side of four smaller circles.
Paint large circle with pink glass paint. Paint two medium circles with orange, and smallest with yellow glass paint. Let dry. Paint opposite sides of each circle. I only applied one coat as I wanted it to remain somewhat transulcent and highlight the floral texture.
Arrange circles with orange circles interconnected with large pink, and yellow circles interconnected with orange circles.
Roll small amount of white clay again, cut small strips about 1/2” x 1/4”.
Wrap small strips around cuts in circles to rejoin. Add a touch of 3-in-1 Adhesive to glue end in place.
Paint each connector piece with matching color paint.
Add a touch of 3-in-1 Adhesive to the top of each connector and mount beneath the adjacent ring.
Add satin cording and closure.
