i have been in love with the large scarf necklaces that have been appearing since last spring. i had some extra sculpey and (as always) fabric laying around, and decided i would give it a go! i've seen a bunch of others on craftster, and i don't think that mine is nearly as lovely, but it is still fun!

the necklace on


the necklace with a quarter to show scale


i made the balls out of sculpey. and i had to sew multiple pieces of fabric together to make it long enough. it took about 63 inches of fabric.

comments and constructive criticisms welcome!

I really like that necklace. It's very art deco. But is it heavy since it's made out of sculpey?

If you want to make it lighter and still use polymer clay, just wrap a layer of the clay around a tightly-scrunched ball of aluminum foil (then bake).  Balls and other shapes of polymer clay even be made hollow, but some of those ways can get a little more complicated.... this one's easy  Grin

I have made these using  bouncy-balls in the ** cent toy aisle at walmart. They aren't very heavy.

Chelsea: bouncy balls = great idea!!!!

the sculpey isn't too heavy. i sort of like the weight. it probably weighs like half a pound. but baking the sculpey around aluminum foil is a great idea!!

thanks for the nice comments!
