An easy & quick necklace with a lot of intricate looking details
Japanese inspired paper clay canes are very popular now-they are used for cute kawaii cell phone cases, miniatures and adorable jewelry found on Etsy. But, I have not seen them used like this, only with 'whipped cream' clay and rhinestones, or used for tiny dollhouse miniatures. I made one of these for myself and got so many complements, I sold a couple to friends and family. Now, I've made 7 or 8 in all different designs, the possibilities are endless.

  • How to make a beaded necklace. Fruity Pendant Necklace - Step 1
    Step 1

    Try to come up with a design in the pendant first before glueing. (here are all my canes, I bought a lot on ebay for all of them for $!0!)

  • Step 2

    First, spread some of your glue on the inside of the pendant. Using your fingers, tweezers or a toothpick, lay down an outer ring of one cane design.

  • Step 3

    Add more glue, repeat, this time only filling inside of those canes.

  • Step 4

    Keep repeating this step until the entire pendant is filled.

  • Step 5

    Set it aside to dry, and if you want, thread half of the beads onto your chain or ribbon.

  • Step 6

    Thread on the pendant, and the other beads. Tie the ends together or add a clasp.
