Materials and tools
• Polymer clay – blue, white
• LC Machine or any other pasta Machine
• LC Czextruder
• LC Disk 5
• LC Slicer or LC Slicer Blade
• 2 Cookie cutters
• Texturing sponge
Condition polymer clay, mix some blue and white to make 2 different light blue shades.
Prepare your Czextruder and disc with rhombus shape from LC Disk 5. Extrude blue, white and 2 light blue shades of clay you mixed before. Cut the extrusions in pieces approx 5 cm / 2” long.
Let’s make the pattern. You will have to work with rows. The bottom row: Dark blue rhombus, light blue rhombus. The top row – light blue rhombus (different shade than in the first row), white rhombus. On the top and bottom, put the blue “cover” – dark blue rhombus. Slice using LC Slicer. Cut the excess to get rectangles.
Put slices together to make a big pattern. Smooth it – gently roll over with a roller. Cut with a cookie cutter.
Run conditioned polymer clay of 2 blue shades through the machine, then put the texturing sponge on it and roll over the sponge with a roller. Using a big cutter, cut a shape from both sheets. Experiment with cutters and cut different shapes. Choose the best parts to make a pendant.
Arrange the parts as you like, bake and the jewelry is ready.
