Rare Rose Necklace

By:

This Rare Rose Necklace by Pattie Donham-Wilkinson for I Love to Create is the coolest craft since sliced bread. That is because it uses sliced white bread to make the clay for the roses. Such an easy jewelry idea is hard to find, but a piece of cake to make.  A do it yourself necklace is something to be worn with pride, especially when it only took you an afternoon to make. Jewelry is the best thing to make with clay because you can mold it however you want to express your uniqueness.

Rare Rose Necklace


Materials:
 

  • Aleene's® Original Tacky Glue™


Miscellaneous

  •           Needle nose pliers
  •           Slice of white bread
  •           Jump rings, clasps
  •           Decorative paper clips in spirals, flowers, hearts
  •           Acrylic paint (for colored clay)
  •           Plastic bags
  •           Craft stick
     

 Instructions:

  1.     Remove crust from the bread slice, and discard crust.
  2.     Tear bread into small pieces and put into a disposable cup or bowl.
  3.     Add 1 tablespoon of tacky glue. Mix with craft stick until well blended.
  4.     Divide into thirds to make three different colors.
  5.     Add a few drops of acrylic paint to each batch. Mix with craft stick, and then knead in your hands until it becomes the consistency of fine clay. Keep bread dough in plastic bags to keep it from drying out while you make the project.
  6. Take a pinch of dough and roll it into a ball. Flatten the ball into a flat circle. Roll the circle to form the center of the rose.
  7.     Take another pinch of dough and roll it into a ball. Flatten the ball into a flat circle. Shape the circle into a petal. Press the petal to the center of the rose.
  8.     Continue to make petals and add to the rose until it is the size you desire.
  9.     Pinch any excess clay from the bottom of the rose. Roll the excess clay into a ball and flatten it. Press a spiral paper clip into the clay. Place the clay rose over the paper clip and press it gently into the excess clay to encase the clip. Set aside to dry.
  10.     Repeat the process until you have enough roses on clips to form a bracelet or necklace. Let the clay roses dry overnight
  11.     Join the rose clips together with jump rings and add clasps to complete.
