Odds 'n Ends Brooch

By:

DIY jewelry crafts can make a huge statement at a low cost. In fact, if you use beads, buttons and other embellishments you already have, you can save a bundle. Make an Odds 'n Ends Brooch from Candace Jedrowicz and show off your wild and crazy personality.

Materials:

  • Polymer clay
  • Aleene’s Platinum Bond Super Glue
  • Beads, jewelry bits, coins, buttons and whatever else you want to add
  • Micro Beads
  • Metallic paste
  • Sealer
  • Pin back

Instructions:

  1. Roll a small ball of clay and flatten until it’s the size you want.
     
  2. Begin adding the the larger beads and elements, pressing them into the clay.
     
  3. Add smaller pieces to cover the clay.  There may still be gaps, but that’s okay.
     
  4. Remove the pieces before baking, remembering where you put them.  Bake the clay according to the package directions.
     
  5. After cooling, glue the pieces on.
     
  6. Gather even smaller pieces.  Add sealer to the exposed clay and drop the little bits on.
     
  7. Sprinkle micro beads on to fill in the rest of the clay.  Allow the sealer to dry.
     
  8. Dip your finger in the metallic paste and rub on the edges on the brooch and some of the beads.
     
  9. Glue  the pin backing in place.
