Making Morrigans Necklace (Tutorial + Update)

Hello curious elves!
So the last week or so i’ve been working away on Morrigans necklace which I’m so proud of myself for. I feel I really accomplished something that I envisioned quite well for my skill level. So I decided to share how I went about it as after scouring the interwebs for tutorials myself, I couldn’t find any that suited my materials and abilities!

STEP 1: SCULPTING

PENDANTS

– Sculpt pendants from air dry clay (If you have a hot dollar near you you can get 1kg for $4)
– I did this using wooden hand tools you can buy for like $8 at hot dollar.

BARS + PEARLS

– Sculpt bar shape + pearl shapes.
(Pearl shapes are just rolled up balls and use a sewing stilleto or thin item to poke in the bead hole)
– Place a few in plaster cast (ONLY DO THIS FOR THE BARS, THE CIRCLE ONES ARE EASIER TO MAKE JUST BY ROLLING IN HANDS)
– Once dry, use air dry clay and press into mould, and pull it out immediately. then use tools to cut down excess and smooth. ย (this was VERY tedious)

STEP 3: PAINTING
– Undercoat in white
– Paint darker areas / black areas first
– paint top coat / base colour
– paint shading
– gloss varnish (optional)

STEP 4: Pattern ,ย Mounting + Closure
– I drew up a neck facing pattern, (you can do this by using a neck facing pattern from a prevought pattern of a high necked top or dress )
– I cut out the pattern in vinyl leather and laid out the bars and pendants the way I wanted them to sit, and then super glued them. (If you used acrylic paints like I did, be wary of any peeling and make sure to glue any tears in the paint underneath back down to avoid losing any).
– I used eyelets for the closure, i had some lying about. If I could use snap closures I would.
