Teracotta Jewellery

Dear friends,

My today's post is on Teracotta jewellery. I thought making these jewellery would be tough and haven't tired it for a long time. 

Just thought of trying it myself and bought air drying clay from Itsy Bitsy and tired with my hands. It is so easy and i remembered by childhood days making toys using clay. It is the same method.

Here is step by step tutorial for making a teracotta jewellery.(Clay jewellery tutorial)

  1. Take a few portion of clay - may a lemon size.
  2. Knead the clay well like we make dough for chapati, but don't add water. you can do this on a plastic sheet or on a metal surface.
  3. Once the clay is soft to mould, you can into any shapes by touching water( like we make shaped chapattis for our kids) Hope now you got a idea.
  4. Pls use tooth pick to make holes.
  5. If you want to use eye pin for earring , insert it while designing(wet condition)
  6. Allow it to dry for 24 hrs
  7. Coat the dried piece with black acrylic paint(fabric paints) and allow it to dry and you can coat it with your desired colours.
  8. Once they are dried completely, it can be varnish with any type of varnish for glow and to seal the paint

My first teracotta earring is here. I haven't used any mould, so shapes won't be appropriate and have used fun paints to colour.

Hope you like it.

My Special set

Hi Friends,

Creating something for yourself, isn’t it special. Whatever i create either i have gifted it or have sold it. 

I have never made a quilled earring for myself. This month is very special to me -i will be 31 on 31st October. This is my special birthday and i would love to gift myself with a set made by me.

Didn’t spend much time on choosing a colour, yes it is pink - Then to design – As i am big criticiser of my own creations, creating an unique creation to win my heart was a tough job. Tried many designs and finally ended with this design. Decorated it with pearls and ghungurus.

This was my first try to convert Paper Jewellery into Fashion jewellery. Hope i have done it to some extent. 

Here it is

Materials used

Paper strips - Itsy Bitsy
Pearls, loreals, jewellery findings - local shop

Would love to have your real feedback.
