This shell and shark pendant is a great example of how Jewelry Clay can be used as a dimensional glue.
I have showed you the new Jewelry Clay in molds, as a transfer technique, as a stampable surface and so much more. You may not think of it as just a super dimensional glue for your project creating tool box.
A tiny bit of clay placed on the base of the shell was all I needed to hold my shark bead in place. I just pressed my shark into place. The clay allows me to create my 3D effect in a way I could not achieve with regular glue.
I brushed the surface of the clay with sky blue Pearl-Ex. Pearl-Ex clings to the clay surface and cures in place.
You can also embed objects with ease. While my clay was still moist I pressed in some Preciosa crystals. These also cure permanently in place. No more re-gluing the crystals later.
Best of all, the clay air dries!
Here is another Sharknado pendant, using the same techniques I made earlier this summer.
This post was designed, photographed and written by me.
