Sister Necklace Pendants

I wanted to make matching necklaces for me and my sisters. So in my last metal clay jewelry class, I did just that.

Silver Sister Pendants

My hope was to have pendants that all matched, but were all just a little different, like me and my sisters. So I made a mold using polymer clay by pressing a rounded end of a tool in it to make a bit of a wavy texture then pressing a small heart charm into it three times – one for me and each of my sisters.

After the polymer clay was baked, I took it to class and used it as a mold for the silver clay. The circle was cut slightly different for each one, creating the slight variation on each pendant. The photo shows the results, and I was super excited about how they turned out.

My jewelry teacher suggested making little bags with anti-tarnish material as the lining for giving the necklaces. Brilliant! I found the material on Amazon, and apparently Joann carries it, too. I’m sure other places do as well, but I just went with Amazon.

Jewelry BagsAfter finally figuring out how to use my sewing machine again after not using it for a few years, I made bags for each of the necklaces. I love how they turned out!
