SIMPLE TERRACOTA JEWELLERY SET

Hello Friends, Today am posting a simple terracota jewellery set that can be worn with salwars and kurtis. This design is inspired from pinterest. I am happy in getting a good response for my previous terracota jewellery tutorial which encouraged me to do more of them.


In this design I have used cone shaped clay beads, round beads and flat disc shaped beads.  As I have already posted photos on making rounded beads in my previous post,  ( you can see the link at the end of this post) here am posting the making of cone shaped beads and flat beads. They are very easy to make but needs a little practice to get it perfect.


CONE SHAPED BEADS:




If the beads crack, add some water to make it smooth. 

DISC SHAPED BEADS:


Press the bead evenly on all sides using thumb and index finger to get the disc shape. 

PENDANT:


Flatten the clay using a pen and draw the design of your choice using a pen knife and cut it. Carve designs using microtip pencil . Attach eye pin at the top of the pendant. To make the bead hanging at the bottom of the pendant use two eye pins.


FINISHING THE NECKLACE:

While making the beads make sure that the bead goes into the rope else make the hole bigger using a toothpick. It is easier to adjust the hole when the clay is wet. Take a jewellery making rope and insert the pendant at the centre. On both sides of the pendant add the beads. At the end of the last bead make a knot .


Make a bead having a bigger hole such that rope of both sides can go through it(Orange bead ). This bead is for adjusting the length of the necklace. At the end of the rope make knots so that the adusting bead does'nt come out.


Make earrings similar to the pendant.


Colour the necklace and earring using metallic colours. Here I have used a mixture of antique gold and black as the main colour and orange as the contrast colour. The necklace and earring display are handmade by recycling cereal boxes. I will post of the tutorial of them in my next post.


Have a great weekend!! Happy Crafting!!
