DIY Pendant Instructions

  1. Condition your opal colored clay. 

  2. Press your conditioned clay into a silicone mold to the shape and size that you would like. 

  3. Take your already sheeted rose gold piece and gently tap your opal, shaped clay into the rose gold sheet. 

  4. Roll a small ball of the rose gold clay and push into place at the top of your opal pendant thus far.  

  5. Using your 5-in-1 clay tool cut around the outside of the opal leaving a small amount of room to give the illusion of a bezel. 

  6. Gently go around the edge and push the rose gold in to frame the opal clay. 

  7. Use a pointer tool to poke a hole through the top of your pendant. 

  8. Bake at 275 degrees for aboult 30 minutes. 

    *Use a glossy glaze to get a nice shiny finish if you would like.

Cheryl words are mine exactually . This opal pendant is stunning and who would have thought it was made out of primo. I also thought this clay was something for kids but never knew it makes some lovely jewelry. I have got to make some for myself and some gifts for family and friends for birthdays,Christmas and even Mother's day or grandparnts day. Love this and the video and tutorial is done so good that anyone can follow it to make this stunning opal pendant.

Wow oh wow, I love this Stunning Opal DIY Pendant! I have never worked with Premo Clay before, and after watching this how to video I so want to try this. I have seen the clay in the craft store and thought it was for kids. Boy was I wrong! LOL. I know what I'll be buying the the next time I go to the craft store. The video make this look so easy to make and it's came out beautiful. Thank you so much for turning me on to a new craft!

You make it look so simple! I want to do this. #NationalCraftMonth2017

#NationalCraftMonth2017 very cute!

#NationalCraftMonth2017 Amazing clay craft! Looks beautiful!

I am always amazed at what can be done with clay. This project is no exception. This pendant is absolutely stunning. I have to go to the craft store anyway. There's a good chance I'll be bringing home clay and some tools. Has anyone used the gloss glaze mentioned? I'm curious how it dries and what the overall look would be.

Wow, I cant believe this pendant is clay! It definitely looks like the real thing.
