'Rose Garden' Necklace
To create a basic Rose shape using clay, first take a pinch of clay (pea sized). Flatten the clay with your fingers and mold into a 'C' shape. Gently press one end of the 'C' together. This will form the centre of your rose.
To create more petals, repeat the first step without creating the 'C' shape. Gently press this flattened clay onto the centre petal created in Step 1 and build up your rose. You may want to slightly vary the amount of clay used for each petal and slightly manipulate them to give a realistic appearance. Push the completed roses onto a flat surface gently, then trim excess to create a flat surface on the back of the rose.
To create the leaves, take approximately 5x5cm of green clay, and flatten using your hands or a rolling tool. Use scissors to cut leaf shapes and place behind the Roses you have created. Use a blunt knife to create leaf detailing. You may wish to use a thin but flattened strip of green clay to hold the roses together at the back of the necklace.
