Hi readers! Who doesn't love a really easy DIY gift? If you do, this one's perfect for your BFF, mom, or sister! Really, any woman in your life who likes jewelry would probably love this. A simple gold and white color palette means this will pretty much go with anything. You could do copper and white, or silver. Any metallic will look cute, since mixing metals is on trend. I'm loving the clay right now too, so easy to work with. If you screw up, you can just start over again! That was necessary for me, in this project, to get a decent sized hole through the clay to make it a little tube. I used copper wire to carve one out, mostly just because it's what I had on hand. I'm sure there are easier tools to use, like a dowel rod, to make a more even hole. Oh well, I got through it! This particular necklace is a gift for someone I know, but I won't say who! They might figure it out though, because it's right up their alley. Hopefully they'll like it, and hopefully you all enjoy making one for yourself or whomever! Happy crafting!
