DIY Clay Doodle Pendants

Clay Pendant
I decided to try a simple clay pendant project with all the doodling I was doing in my sketchbook. I have a bit of a necklace problem (meaning I have a large collection) and feel like something is missing when I’m not wearing one. These pendants are easy, easy enough for a kid to do in fact (the adult doing the baking part, of course).

DIY Clay Doodle Pendants

Materials:
A 2 oz. package of Sculpey oven bake clay (I used white)
A black permanent marker
A straw
A glass
Clear fingernail polish
Leather cording
 
To Make:
Using half of a 2 oz. package of the clay, knead it in your hands till pliable, then roll is flat (I used the side of a glass). It should be 1/8″-1/4″ thick.
Make a circle cut-out of the clay with the glass, then poke a hole at the top with a straw.

Bake the pendants according to the clay package directions, then cool.
 
I got inspiration for doodles to draw by looking through my sketchbooks.

Then just start doodling with a black fine permanent pen.

If you want you can finish these off with a coat of clear fingernail polish. Thread with a length of leather cording, and there you have it!
