DIY neon clay beads to make this fun necklace. Tutorial at ThinkCrafts.com

Geometric shapes are very popular in jewelry right now. This multifaceted  bead is easy to make and a great summer project for the teens in your life. These can be made in a half an hour and by using the nylon coated wire, the beads string themselves. Use neon colors of clay and you’ll be right on trend.

 

Supplies:

Start by cutting a square of clay right off the block. Start making cuts to create the multifaceted look. Once the shape desired is complete, use the nylon coated wire to pierce a hole in the bead. Continue making beads in this fashion.

I placed the beads on the wire in the finished pattern and spaced them out the way I wanted the finished necklace to look. Then I cut the wire and place the entire necklace, wire and all into the oven and baked according to the instructions on the package.

I found that the nylon melted a little and holds the finished beads in place.

Once the necklace is cool, I used crimp beads to attach a jump ring and lobster clasp to finish the piece.

    I would have never thought to cook the clay right on the wire. Great idea!
