STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS
Making Ursula’s Necklace
Start with a ball of gold polymer clay, and roll it out into a long round cone shape, tapering to the end. Then gently roll the thin end up into a spiral until your shell looks like Ursula’s. It only takes a couple of rolls, as her shell is very simple. Use a craft blade to cut any extra off of the end. Then make sure it is well pushed together.
The next step is to push a toothpick through the top of the shell. Push it slowly, using a twisting motion, so you don’t change the shape. Make sure to refer to a picture of Ursula’s necklace and position the toothpick where the ribbon should pass through. Then use a smoothing tool to smooth down edges of the holes made by the toothpick. And don’t forget to add three lines on the shell to make it just like Ursula’s
Bake according to the instructions on your clay package. Baking time and temperature will vary by clay brand and the size of your project. Once your shell pendant is baked and completely cooled, carefully twist and remove the toothpick.
Next, cut a piece of thin black ribbon or cord. The length should be long enough to fit the necklace over your head, with a bit extra for the knotted ends. Then run the ribbon through the hole using the toothpick to help. Tie a knot in the end, and your necklace is ready to wear.
Making Ursula’s Earrings
Start with two balls of purple polymer clay and two toothpicks. Roll one portion of purple clay into a teardrop shape. Pinch the bottom end so it is slightly pointed. Then holding the pointed bottom end, gently twist the teardrop shape into a spiral. Use a toothpick or smoothing tool to smooth the spiral and create a few obvious shell lines. Refer to a picture of Ursula to get the shape correct. Her earrings do not have a lot of details.
Next, take the second ball of purple clay and repeat the steps. Roll it into a teardrop, pinch the bottom end, and twist into a spiral. Use a smoothing tool to make both earrings as similar as possible. Once you have the pieces how you want them, push a toothpick through the top of both shells. And now you are ready to bake the clay.
Bake according to the instructions on your clay package.
Once the pieces have baked and completely cooled, carefully twist and remove the toothpicks from each shell. Now you have a nice hole for your jump rings.
Use two pairs of jewelry making pliers to open a 6 millimeter jump ring and thread the shell on. Then use the pliers to securely close the ring. Open the loop on an earring hook, slide the jump ring into the loop and close it up, and your earring Is done. Repeat the process for the second earring, and your jewelry set is complete.
