Let's face it, making jewelry from polymer clay is fun, so go ahead and make some! This Clay Leaf Pendant should give you some inspiration. It's an adorable little idea and if you don't like leaves, make yourself a flower or balloon!

Clay Leaf Pendant Instructions

  1. After warming up the clay and rolling it in my palm for a few minutes to soften it up, I rolled it out about 1/8 inch thick, and cut 2 rectangles. Using the smallest cookie cutter I had on hand, I cut a leaf out of one of the rectangles.
     
  2. Condition green clay, roll it out to 1/8 inch thick, cut 1 leaf shape out and insert it in the silver clay rectangle. Pretty simple. Next I just put the other silver rectangle behind. This is really not required, you could just make 1 rectangle (just make it thicker), I wanted the pendant to have design on one side and be plain on the other.
     
  3. Added a few details with a toothpick to the leaf and baked it according to the directions on the package.
     
  4. Glue jump ring to the back.
     
  5. That's it. Now you can use it any way you want. I made a matching necklace out of labradorite and green garnet stones.
