From The Depths Of The Ocean To You.
I like octopi. They're great. But I don't really want to take one's tentacle for my jewellery. Or buy resin to put it in. Or buy a merchant's version of an octopi tentacle on Etsy. Therefore, I decided to make my own.
These tentacles can be used for anything. Make two, and you have earrings. Put your tentacle on the end of a chain (What I recommend if you don't have pierced ears). Just have fun! That's what I did!
It says embroidery needle on the list of things you'll need, but you can easily use the tip of a pencil, the aglet (hard plastic part) of a shoelace, or some thick wire.

Start placing the dots on the cone.
I like two rows on my tentacle, but you can obviously do more or less depending on how shaky your hands are, or how pleasing it is to your eye. All up to you!
As you go down the cone, the dots can get bigger than you want them to. Just carefully take the dot off, shave a bit of the clay off, re-roll into a ball, and flatten. That might do the trick. If it doesn't, repeat.
WOOT! Look at what you've got now, a tentacle! SHWEET! Nice job, guys! If you chose not to poke a hole in the top before baking, you can drill the polymer clay once it's cool. If you want, you can sand it with a very fine grit. Or finish it with a craft gloss. Just do with it what you please!
