Rainbow Stacked Necklace 🌈

rainbow clay necklace 8


Saturday was London’s Pride parade, so in honour of all things rainbow wonderful, we thought we would make this little polymer clay necklace. Its made from stacked polymer clay and, like everything I ever do, it’s really easy!

You will need:

  • Pink, blue, yellow polymer clay (e.g. fimo)
  • metal fork/spoon
  • tin foil
  • cocktail stick
  • 80cm pink, yellow and blue embroidery thread
  • needle

1. Begin by rolling each piec of clay out between two sheets of clingfilm (this will prevent the clay from sticking to our rolling pin/worksurface, keep it nice and clean, allow you to move it about  and see the thickness more easily. Boom). Cut small strips of fimo – a piece of pink measuring 40x 5mm, yellow measuring 35 x 5mm, blue measuring 30 x 5mm. Use a cocktail stick to make a large hole in the centre of each.

I went to my meet my friend Alice last week and, knowing that she is a big fan of meringue, I thought I would have a go at making her some mini rainbows to brighten up the grey wet that surrounds us right now. The fact that I forgot to take them with me was a bit annoying! I’m now left munching my way through these little gems.
