Air Dry Clay Bird Pendant

by Jennie McIntyre. (Rochester UK) This was made from air dry clay. I then used acrylic paints and finally sealed for durability.

Adjustable Neckwire for Pendants (Tutorial)

by Rena Klingenberg. This adjustable neckwire is an artistic, alternative way to wear a pendant.
