I like to change jewelry everyday, it’s a fun way to complete any outfit! For spring and summer time it’s always nice to wear a touch of color. I already made a few jewellery items using polymer clay. I have to admit that it’s one of my favorite material to work with because you can easily create a lot of different shapes. Today tutorial will show you how to make feather pendant. It’s simple to make, and you can create various color feathers to combine them with the outfit of the day.
Material you will need to make feather pendants: Various colors of polymer clay, a cutter, a toothpick, a sharpie, some jewelry rings, an oven dish.
Take a small piece of clay and make a small ball with it. Use the sharpie to extend the clay.
With the cutter, cut a feather shape into the clay.
Use the unsharp side of the blade to draw a vertical line and a few oblique lines on each side.
Give the finish touch to the feather shape making small triangles cuts on each side.
To be able to pass a small ring through the feather, use a toothpick and make a small hole on the upper part of the feather.
Have fun using different colors and making as much feather pendants as you like. You can also vary the feather size, it will look nice if you decide to wear several feathers at once. When you are done, place all the pieces on an oven dish and bake for 30 minutes at a low temperature. The baking time may vary from one polymer clay brand to an other, so I will suggest to read the packaging instructions for detailed information.
Once baked, take the polymer clay out of the oven and let the pieces cool down. Then use pliers to pass a jewelry ring though each feather. And done, grab your favorite chain and slide one or various feather pendants through it! Have fun trying different combinations.
