Ribbon Necklace

I’ve fallen head over heels with ribbon necklaces!  Had I known how easy they were to make, I’d have been making them a long time ago.
supply list
. Wide Decorative Ribbon
. Narrow Ribbon (I used Baker’s Twine)
. Polymer Clay
. Jewelry Clasps
. Jewelry 2″ Eye Pins
The polymer clays I choose were so simple.  I pulled off small chunks and rolled them into balls with my hands.  Here is the basic layout I decided upon.
My clay required the oven at 275F for thirty minutes.  Be sure before you bake your beads  that you have “pre-holed” them.  That’s my technical term for make sure you’ve added a hole to eventually hang your beads with.
After the beads had cooled, I pushed the 2″ eye pins through and using jewelry pliers made a very small loop at the bottom to keep the beads from falling off.
Once all you beads are on the 2″ eye pins, you can add the ribbons!  I tied one end of my decorative ribbon and my baker’s twine to the jewelry clasps.  This creates the necklace shape.
I just love the ribbon look in the back.


Well, I’m ready to start cranking these beauties out in every color now!  What’s your favorite color combination?
