how to make clay necklace pendants

I never considered myself a DIY’er or a crafter but since I started some crafts for this blog a while ago, I can’t seem to stop.  It’s so addictive.  My latest crafting obsession is making stuff with home bake clay.  Oh the possibilities!  My first DIY clay project was making clay necklace pendants for kids. We chose moon and star shaped pendants but you could go any any shape you like.  Here’s what we did:

Felt sweeties…

March 11, 2013

"felt necklaces for girls"Being Indian, I visit India often as I have loads of family there including my parents.  For me, shopping and eating are always at the top of the agenda in India because I love doing both.  As far as the shopping is concerned, I never really indulge in expensive stuff but instead it’s always about picking up unusual little trinkets and treasures for the home or to wear.  The one thing I never leave India without is a load of bangles, bindi’s and necklaces for my daughter Anya.  She absolutely loves her accessories and will often load up her arms with 20-30 bangles at a time!  Last time we were there we picked up a gorgeous fabric necklace for her which has now become an absolute favourite of mine and Anya’s.  India is a great place to buy colourful and unusual jewellery for kids but since I don’t live there I’m always looking for other avenues too.  And my latest finds are these super sweet handmade necklaces, hair clips and hair ties by Homako.

"pastel hair clips girls"Based in LA, Yoko hand makes all these gorgeous accessories with a definite Japanese vibe to them which isn’t surprising as Yoko is originally from Japan.  I love the soft pastel colours which are perfectly complimented with dark stripes and little unexpected details like the pearls and baubles.  The necklaces are strung on ribbons finished with little coloured felt dots that are such a pretty addition.  Yoko makes jewellery for adults as well but a lot of the kids’ range is designed for mum and daughter to share.  You can get these sweet necklaces and hair accessories at Homako but Yoko has also created an exclusive and beautiful range for the lovely online boutique Minikin which is also very worth checking out.

I am truly besotted by this new collection of kids jewellery by Bloesem.   Featuring pretty necklaces and bracelets in bold colours, each piece has a fun element making it perfect for little girls.  Simple styles with subtle embellishments {like the apple} make this collection unique.

I’m loving the bright neon cords used in many of the necklaces especially the leather flower one and the one with the adorable mickey mouse pendant.  The classic pearl makes an appearance too but it’s been given a playful and modern twist with the addition of things like a wooden mini squirrel or some tiny charms.

The jewellery is all handmade by the talented Irene Hoofs {a mama of 2} and comes in extremely limited quantities so if you want one I guess you’ll have to be quick!  And mama’s if you’re tempted, I’m excited to tell you that there’s a ladies collection too including a couple of DIY kits.  To browse these beautiful pieces visit Bloesem wears where you can see the entire collection.
