You can create this fun necklace using the same techniques you have learned from this project. The largest oval cutter in the set was used for the oval pendant and to cut the football-shaped bead as well. Three jump rings are added to the pendant and two to the bottom edge of the football bead. A horizontal hole runs through the top edge of the football-shaped clay bead. The irregular-cut red rock beads are purchased glass beads strung on nylon-coated beading wire. An antique gold barrel clasp was added to the necklace ends.
This link-style bracelet will introduce you to tinted liquid clay with alcohol inks. It is also a good beginner project for carving baked polymer clay. The tool is inexpensive—just a small "V"-shaped linoleum cutter. You can create a custom sheet mold, or carved designs can be backfilled with soft clay (see "Mosaic Lapel Brooch" on page 106).
