Prices may vary instore and online.
Step 1

Slice a piece of black, white, Pacific Blue, Cherry Red and Tangerine clay from each block.

Step 2

Knead and condition until moldable.

Step 3

Add a little black clay to your conditioned Pacific Blue clay to make navy.

Step 4

Roll out each colour into different thicknesses of snake shapes, lay them next to each other, vertically, in the following order: white, Tangerine, Cherry Red, navy and white. Use an acrylic roller, or clay machine, to flatten and blend as shown.

Step 5

Roll out more navy to about 1/8" [0.3 cm] thick and cut a medium-small circle.

Step 6

Roll out more Tangerine to about 1/8" [0.3 cm] thick and cut four small circles.

Step 7

Use a small stylus tool to create a hole in the centre towards the top of the hexagon and small circles; then on two sides of the medium-small navy circle, as shown.

Step 8

Bake for 30 minutes at 230°F (110°C). Remove from oven and set aside to cool.

Step 9

Use a jump ring to attach the hexagon shape to one of the holes in the medium-small navy circle.
TIP: To open and close a jump ring, simply grasp the jump ring on both sides with chain nose pliers and twist the ring open, from side-to-side. Never pull the jump ring which can cause distortion.

Step 10

Cut a piece of chain to desired length.

Step 11

Add a jump ring to one end and jump ring with a lobster clasp to the other end.

Step 12

Find the centre of your necklace and add the hexagon pendant to the centre with a jump ring.

Step 13

Use jump rings to add two Tangerine circles, evenly spaced, to each side of the hexagon pendant.
