I’ve had a few requests for this after I posted a picture of my Captain America necklace on my 4th of July post.
So, I have made a new one and taken pictures at all the steps for those who would wish to learn, those who have the time and those who have the clay.
Let us begin:
Red clay, blue clay, white clay and a hard, flat surface.
Pinch off 2 small balls of red clay and one small ball of white clay. Roll them out into thin logs.
Pinch off 5 very small, white balls of clay. Shape them into diamonds, but do not squish them flat.
Stick the diamonds together into a star shape.
Now, that’s not a perfect star, so at this point, we need to do a little molding. Make sure not to squish it too flat, but shape it until it looks like a star.
There. That’s a little better. But, while I was making this, I realized I’d made the star too big for a reasonable sized necklace. So, some trimming was in order.
Behold my final star.
Pull off 5 little nibs of blue clay and mold them into very wide triangles. Once again, please don’t squish them flat.
Stick the blue triangles in between the points of the stars, making a circle. It’s okay to squish a little at this point, to keep the blue and white clay together.
Wrap the logs around the star circle, trimming them off after one wraparound. Wrap them in the order of red, then white, then red again.
Poke a hole through the top edge big enough for the thread that you’re using.
Then stick in the oven to bake.
I’m using Sculpey clay, so this went in for 15 minutes at 275*F.
Thread your thread of choice through the hole and knot it off. I used embroidery floss.
Yay! Your Captain America necklace is done! Enjoy, and wear proudly. 🙂
And, if you don’t have the time or the clay, the necklace that I made in this tutorial is on Etsy.
Yes, you could wear that exact perfect little necklace!
Or make it yourself. Whatever you prefer.
Tell me how it turns out!
Please comment with any questions!
