Glistening Sea Necklace | Swarovski Ceralun

Step 1

Mix a small part of the Ceralun according to the instructions. The amount of clay you need will depend on how raised you want the finish to be.  To make a domed piece as pictured, you will need a (mixed) ball about the size of a 20p coin.

Step 2

Roll the clay into a ball and gently press into the middle of the circular bezel.

Step 3

Using the flat pad of your finger, gently tap and press the clay evenly until it reaches the edges of the bezel.

Step 4

Continue to smoothen the piece, creating a flat & even surface.

Step 5

Decide on what design or pattern you want to achieve, choose your Swarovski crystals and begin to press them evenly into the clay. Make sure the back of the crystal is completely submerged below the clay so that the line edge fits flush to the clay. 

Step 6

Once your pattern is complete, dampen a cotton bud and gently wipe it across the surface of the clay for a soft shine. 

Step 7

After the clay has fully hardened (up to 72 hours) thread the pendant onto a length of chain and attach a clasp to the end using jumprings. 

Step 8

At different intervals down your necklace attach your shell charms using jumprings. 

Step 9

Take an eyepin and thread on 3 of your Swarovski bicone beads. Trim and loop the eyepin.
Create 4 of these eyepins and attach them at intervals down your necklace. To do this, cut or open a link in your chain and attach the eyepin into the gap.
