How to Make Best Friend Clay Necklaces

Did you own a best friend necklace as a kid?  One of my friends recently bought a pair for her daughter and best friend.  (They were groovy mood ones.  Girls' jewelry has definitely gotten cuter since I was a kid.)  I was so inspired by the cute necklaces that my son and I made our own clay friendship necklaces.  Aren't they fun?

(And even though these were made for friends, this would be a great gift to make for Mother's Day or Valentine's Day too!)

Let's Make Best Friends Necklaces:

  • Open your Sculpey clay and work it with your fingers until it's malleable.
  • Mix desirable colors to get a lovely swirled effect.
  • Roll and flatten your clay.  
  • Cut out a heart shape.
  • Use a pair of scissors to cut the heart apart in a zig-zag manner.
  • Use a skewer to push holes into each piece.

  • Once your pendants cool down, string them onto a piece of colored yarn.  (Roll masking tape onto the ends of your yarn to help string on beads.)
  • String on extra bling bling beads.
  • Tie your necklace on and wear it with pride  


Aren't they so, so pretty?
