Geometric Clay Jewellery

I love a bit of air dry clay, as you might have noticed if you’re a regular visitor (if so, sorry to be doing yet another clay project. I’m just obsessed with the stuff!) and if you don’t have access to a kiln air dry clay is almost as good as the real thing. It’s obviously not as tough or water proof, but with a good lick of varnish it can pass for a real piece of clay. So I thought I’d make some simple geometric pieces, and I love how they turned out. What I did NOT love were the pictures of me that me and Laura took to show the jewellery. I realised looking at the pics that I’m suddenly old and wrinkly with a saggy chin.  No amount of photoshopping can fix that!

This bauble garland is so easy to make. It’s a little bit of a cheat as the baubles are actually wooden gift tags – but you could easily cut baubles from card and create a similar effect. I went for a traditional Christmas palette of silver, orange, and, erm, hot pink. Mainly because this was a last minute idea and those are the only spray paints I own! Feel free to go down the more rustic look though. You could also use normal paint but spray paints are waaaaaaay more fun and satisfyingly speedy.
