I have been playing around with salt dough and a cookie cutter.  These are big and chunky at about 3x2 inches give or take.

How hard did these end up? Do you think they will last as jewelery?  A cool idea either way.

They seem to be rock hard but I haven't tried snapping one in half. I kind of figure that I wouldn't buy a piece of jewellery and then try to snap it in half.  Besides which this is just meant to be a fun project for kids to make. The first few that I made I baked in the oven but they kind of bubbled up and blistered.  These ones I have spread out in front of my log burner and turned them over frequently. It does get very hot on the hearth so I think they have 'cooked'.  I intend to make a big batch of them and once they are dry they will make great crafting resources for the kids to paint or stick things on.
