Do not use unbaked clay on unprotected furniture or finished surfaces. Start with clean hands and work surface area. Good work surfaces include wax paper, metal baking sheet, or disposable foil. 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 15 minutes per 1/4" (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 dedicated pasta machine several passes on the widest setting. Fold the clay in half after each pass and insert the fold side into the rollers first.
Using the Clay Conditioning Machine, roll out a bar of Tranquility on the #1 setting. Then set the machine to the #2 setting and run the sheet through again to make a thinner sheet.Place the sheet of the clay on your work surface. Lightly mist the texture sheet with water and press it into the clay sheet. Repeat until you have enough textured area for 13 circles to be cut out.
Use the round cutter to cut 13 round discs. You will need 11 circles for the necklace and 2 for the earrings.
Use your finger apply the Copper metallic powder to the top surface of the textured discs with your finger. NOTE: A little metallic powder goes a long way. To avoid using too much rub your finger on the inside of the lid to use up that powder first. Repeat for all the clay discs.
Next, add some complementary color highlights with the light green metallic powder. Apply sparingly to give the textured discs a little pop of color.
Use the Sculpey needle tool to make the holes in the top of the discs.Bake the discs according to the directions above.
While the discs are baking, thread an accent bead on a T-pin, trim off the excess wire with the wire cutters, but leave enough to create a small loop with the round nose pliers. Make enough to put one between each of the discs on the necklace and 2 for the earrings.
Once the discs have baked and cooled, place a jump ring through the hole of each disc and position 11 of them close enough that they slightly overlap on another with an accent bead in between each disc.
Use the third earring wire to create the clasp of the necklace. Attach a jump ring to one end of the chain. Attach the third earring wire to that jump ring. Using the round pliers curl the end of the ear wire.
To assemble the earrings, place a jump ring through the hole on both earrings. Place the one accent bead on both of the eye pins. Using the pliers round the end of the eye pin to form a loop. Attach that loop to the jump ring on the earring disc. Attach the ear wire to the top of the eye pin.
Give your necklace and earrings a finished look by applying Sculpey glaze. This will also help seal in the pearlex powder.
