If you shape the necklace as you see it in one piece, and then cut it apart, you'd get the size and shape of the beads right. The nice thing about the clay is that you can either mix colors of clay until you get the right color, or paint it. After you've cut apart the shapes, use a skewer to make your holes and then bake the beads until they're hardened. The directions are on the package. I made my sister a necklace similar to the one in your picture. Because I mixed the clay, the beads looks like real turquoise. Then simply string the beads and add a closure.

I was Pocahontas last year for an orchestra event. My necklace was made in about 30 seconds from the leftover fabric from John Smith's T-shirt. Here's the picture if you would like to see. My mom started making the dress 3 days before the concert! Good luck with your costume  Smiley

This is my first reply!

Styrofoam and turquoise paint. Cut in into beads with an exacto, poke a hole through it with a bamboo skewer, paint and thread.

I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now. -John Lennon

Hi, I don't know if this is a little late or not... Or if someone even suggested it yet but, you could try needle felting it (something I know nothing about but love the way it looks).  Or sewing one out of felt.  I say felt because it can hold just about any shape and it's kind of soft and light.  I dunno maybe I'm wrong.  Good luck.

hey, this is probably way too late, but I remembered your post when I came across this site. If you like making paper beads it could look really good if you haven't made it yet. Tongue

I can imagine this looking great, but could take quite a long time!
Anyway, good luck with the costume, and looking forward to pics!
