***THIS IS A DIGITAL PRODUCT***
In this workshop, I’ll begin by sharing how to easily create a tube bead necklace, with a custom dimensional clay bezel. Then the real fun begins - I’ll be showing you how to make five different succulents to fill your bezel for this very unique piece of jewelry.
Why succulents? Succulents really are on trend right now - they are popping up everywhere - not just in home decor and gardening centers - but in jewelry and fashion also - bracelets, necklaces, headbands, barrettes, earrings, and even rings. Big, bold pieces packed with succulents. Especially on wedding jewelry. On sites like Pinterest, you’ll find a wide assortment of jewelry made with real mini succulents, that the wearer can plant after the event. There are a few polymer clay options out there also. I wanted to design something that was a bit of a blend between the real versions, and the polymer clay versions I saw, and this mini succulent garden necklace was the result.
Not interested in creating a wearable succulent garden? These tiny succulents would also be fabulous for embellishing boxes, frames and more. The techniques you’ll learn can be used to create life size home decor pieces too - made entirely of clay. Just alter your sizes as needed and let your creativity take care of the rest. I use a no-bake clay in the video, but you can substitute your favorite oven bake clay as you wish. The techniques will be the same.
