A Valentine’s Day Necklace: "Bead My Valentine"

Valentine's Day NecklaceThis was a fun little Valentine I gave to Grace. Though you would think that a Valentine’s Day choker would be a bit counter-intuitive she liked the idea enough to make one for her friends as well.

Using Sculpey clay (or another brand of clay that hardens when you bake it) roll out a piece of clay into a string as thin as you can make it and about six or seven inches long.

Roll up the string of clay at both ends toward the middle then pinch it the middle point into a heart shape and bake according to package directions.

Valentine's Day NecklaceOnce it’s hardened string a ribbon through the holes to make a pretty little choker (you could also use a chain or natural fiber for different looks). The beads would also make a pretty charm for a bookmark.
