DIY Doily Necklace: A Tutorial

Sorry I missed a(nother) post yesterday! I wasn’t feeling great, but I feel much better now, and I have a super cute and easy tutorial for ya’s! You may know how much I love polymer clay from my many many other polymer clay posts. I especially love making jewelry with it. I saw this picture a while ago, and really loved it. It was a doily imprinted necklace but made of metal, and not to mention, I couldn’t afford it. So when we got these cute tiny doilies at work, I knew exactly what I’d make with them! I had some silver polymer clay left over from when I made my fingerprint necklace, so I used that, though it would be cute in different colors too!

These are the little guys I picked up from Michaels! I got them for less than $4 and used a coupon.

 

Using a little rolling pin, I flattened out the clay a little bit.

 

I centered the doily and using a flat object, I pushed down to flatten and imprint it onto the clay.

 

I poked a little hole through the top with a toothpick (which I didn’t take a picture of) and baked according to the directions. Once it cooled, I put a jump ring and chain through it.

 

Love this necklace! πŸ™‚

**Have a project you made using one of my tutorials? Show it off! I, along with all my followers, would love to see it! πŸ™‚ I’ve started a new page on my blog called “Your Pictures!”, located right next to the “About This Blog!” link at the top of my blog.

Until tomorrow!!

  2. I really like this. Haven’t worked with polymer clay before because everything I saw was too cutsy and not my style. But this definitely is. Thanks for sharing.
