- Pardo jewelry clay
- A knife
- 1 small leaf cookie cutter
- A rolling pin from the kids' Play-Doh bucket
- A 9 mm jump ring
- A drop of Gorilla glue
- 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.
- 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.
- Added a few details with a toothpick to the leaf and baked it according to the directions on the package.
- Glue jump ring to the back.
- That's it. Now you can use it any way you want. I made a matching necklace out of labradorite and green garnet stones.
