Chevron Ombre Clay Pendants

While I'm enjoying some break time, I wanted to share this tutorial with you.... I figured I'd add another trend into the Striped Ombre Clay Pendants I made - and it would let me play with more clay and make more shades and tints (which I love). So voila - the chevron ombre clay pendant!

Basically, you start out just like the other pendants (the Striped Ombre Clay Pendants), but instead of cutting out a circle or whatever shape for your pendant and then making a hole for a jump ring, you're going to make two cuts like this. 

(The middle triangle is the extra clay that you'll set aside and I'll share some projects for what I did with that extra clay, but you can make that a pendant like the other ones I've shared or do a number of things with it.)

Then, line up your two angled side pieces and sort of smoosh them together (#1). Then, put some parchment paper on it and rub the clay (#2) so the stripes are melded together pretty well (#3). Then, use a cookie cutter or just a knife to cut the pendant into the shape you want (#4). 

Then, use your toothpick or pick or whatever and poke a hole for a ring so you can make it a pendant. Bake according to the instructions for your clay. 

Add a jump ring or spring ring and string onto some kind or cord or chain and it's a necklace!

A sort of side view - you can see the pendant is pretty thick. I like making my stripes and pendant pretty thick, but you can play around with that and make a few pendants!

I LOVE this project and the pendants I've made this way... I just think they're so pretty and visually interesting. Hopefully I'll get to be fascinated by some pendants you make! 

Also, I have to give big credit and thanks to Lucy of Craftberry Bush for her tutorial on chevron clay pendants because I used that to figure out how to make these (though I still can't figure out how to make a black and white clay pendant without a lot of gray clay).

I'll be sharing this project at some of my favorite parties...
