Inverted Rainbow Necklace
I’ve had this image of a chunky rainbow mini-bib necklace for a while; a mini many-hued statement necklace the likes of which Cleopatra might wear and today I finally made that a reality.
I’m not feeling super talkative today so let’s get straight to the craft!
- 7 colors of oven bake clay (all fimo pictured but I forgot purple which I used a sculpey block for)
- Sculpey Glue
- 2 Jumprings
- Needle-nose Pliers
- 2 Metal flat bracelet ends
Step 1: Use your extruder to make a tube of each color. Make them all about 6 in. and you’ll cut them down later.
Step 2: Layer the colors together side by side. You can apply a little bit of sculpey glue to keep the pieces together.

Lay your piece on the surface you’re going to cook it on. Use a tape roll or something similarly round to form the arch shape. (I had to reshape my arch when I moved it to my pan, whoops!)
Trim the ends of the piece.
Step 3: Bake according to the instructions on your packaging.
Step 4: Once your rainbow has cooled down, use your jewelry pliers to attach your metal endings.
Then use your jump rings to attach one end of each piece of chain to the metal endings. Then attach your closure pieces to the opposite ends of the chain.
I really like my new necklace and think it’s an original piece that goes great with my new star blouse I paired with it above. If you want to check out more easy and stylish tutorials browse the Jewelry section of my Project Gallery.
