Ok sorry it wasnt up right away, full time work and school has got me swamped in "to do" lists. Anyway, I'll try and make this tut as clear as I can, it's a fairly simple project once you got the hang out it.

Things you will need

-printer or small cut outs from magazines, etc.
-sculptys bend and bake clay
-pasta machine or a rolling pin
-razor blade
-sharpened pencil, safety pin, or pen
-mod podge
-credit card or some sort of flat cardboard surface
-clear acrylic sealant
-jumprings, lobster claws, pliers, wire cutters, loose chain, and beads (basically have your jewelry box and tools ready)
-oven
-baking sheet and tin foil

ok first, print up some images and cut them out to a desireed shape, remember to print small, unless you want to make some serious bling.

By cupcakecult
this is a pasta machine, a rolling pin can flatten out the clay just fine, but can get lumpy, so i prefer using the pasta machine.

By cupcakecult
Warm the clay by kneading it in your hands until it's nice and soft, then run it through the machine

By cupcakecult
then lay down your pancake of clay on a baking sheet covered in tin foil (unless you have a special clay only baking sheet, then no tin foil is necessary)

By cupcakecult
take your cut out design

By cupcakecult
lay it flat on the clay like so

By cupcakecult
now use a razor blade to cut out your design

By cupcakecult
when you're done it shoudl look something like this

By cupcakecult
heart shapes, ovals, and sqaures are easy if you have a tough time cutting them out exactly. you can also use cookie cutters if you dont plan on using them on cookies ever
next, add little holes where your charm will attach to the chains of the necklace

By cupcakecult
get a nice sheet full of them made and bake as directed

By cupcakecult
once they are done baking and have cooled, it's time to mod podge your images on them.
lay down a brushfull of mod podge on the charm

By cupcakecult
lay down the paper design

By cupcakecult
then use a card to smooth out the air bubbles

By cupcakecult
now allow that to dry for a few minutes, then come back and lay a very thin coat of mod podge over it (too much and you will smear your design)
then when that first layer dries, give it more mod podge layers, and finish with a layer of clear acrylic sealant.

By cupcakecult
beware of dirty hands duyring mod podging, things like this can occur when you place down the design

By cupcakecult
then once your charms are ready, add them to lengths of chain and beads in a nifty design, if you dont know how to link chain and beads, here is a crummy paint tut using jewelry wire
purple=chain green=beads, black=jewelry wire

By cupcakecult
just make loops out of jewerly wire to attach the bead in the center to lengths of chain. twisting them off at the end will make them more sturdy.
adding rinestones like the red ones on this necklace to your completed charms adds a cute touch as well

By cupcakecult
good luck in your crafting, hope this tut helps!

Hi all,   this is a brilliant idea, but,   ----does it have to be on bendy clay or will it work on normal Fimo etc.??

I love this idea. I've just started making jewelry and I went and bought some 2part epoxy resin to make some pendants and things, but this seems way easier and better for being creative. Thanks.
