Premo! Lotus Talisman Sautoir

Starting at $14.99

A sautoir is a very long chain necklace, often terminating in a tassel dangling from a single pendant. The pendant in this sautior was made by covering a hollow paper form with a thin skin of polymer clay. After curing, deeply textured bits of polymer were attached to the surface. After a second curing, alcohol ink tinted white pearl liquid polymer was applied to color the bead pendant. The beautiful micro-crystalline matte surface adds a bit of mystery. Assembled with a cap bead and a tassel, this necklace has a very Bohemian vibe. Design by Mari O'Dell

Getting StartedPolymer clay may stain. CLAY MAY DAMAGE UNPROTECTED FURNITURE OR FINISHED SURFACES. DO NOT USE polymer clay on unprotected surfaces. We recommend working on the Sculpey clay mat, wax paper, metal baking sheet, or disposable foil. Start with clean hands and work surface area. Knead clay until soft and smooth. For best results, clean your hands in between colors. Shape clay, pressing pieces together firmly. Bake on oven-proof glass or metal surface at 275°F (130 °C) for 30 minutes per ¼" (6 mm) thickness. For best baking results, use an oven thermometer. DO NOT USE MICROWAVE OVEN. DO NOT EXCEED THE ABOVE TEMPERATURE OR RECOMMENDED BAKING TIME. Wash hands after use. Baking should be completed by an adult.Begin by preheating oven to 275 °F (130 °C). Test temperature with oven thermometer for perfectly cured clay. For best results, condition all clay by running it through the Clay Conditioning Machine for several passes on the widest setting. Fold the clay in half after each pass and insert the fold side into the rollers first.

Apply a thin coat of the Genesis Medium to the surface of the bead. Cover with a thin sheet of well conditioned scrap clay. Make this layer as smooth as possible. Cure the bead as directed in Step 1. Allow to cool.
Make impressions from a deeply textured mold using conditioned Premo! Sculpey in Ecru.
Apply the Genesis Medium to one surface of the bead at a time, then apply the textured bits, building to cover that side completely. Continue to cover the entire bead. Finish top and bottom caps and then slide the bead onto a metal knitting needle. Configure the beading rack so that the bead is totally suspended. Create a textured cap bead. Suspend on a bead rack. Cure both beads for 30 minutes at the recommended temperature. Allow to cool.
Pour a small amount of the White Pearl Liquid polymer into a container. Add the alcohol inks by drops and mix until you get the desired color. Use a brush to paint thin layers of the polymer onto one side of the bead at a time. I do a 10 minute partial cure on each side before applying the liquid clay to the next side for the best control. The colors look wonderful layered. A final cure for the completed pendant bead is 30 minutes at the recommended temperature.
Assemble the pendant bead ,tassel , spacers and cap bead . Attach to long chain necklace and let your Bohemian spirit shine
