Preheat oven to 275 °F. Test temperature with oven thermometer for perfectly cured clay. Condition all clay by kneading until it’s soft and smooth or 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.
Squeeze a small amount of the Aleen’s glue onto a make-up sponge. You don’t want to have too much on the sponge since you only want to add a tin layer. Gently dab some of the glue onto the top of the clasp, make sure you cover the entire top surface of the clasp, but be careful not to get it around the sides of the clasp. Once you have the glue on set the clasp to the side.
Condition equal parts Gold and Pearl clay; about ¼ block of each color. This will yield a lighter/brighter shade of gold which will better match the color of the clasp.
Condition a very small amount (about the size of a lentil bean) of the Alizarin crimson Hue into ½ of a block of Pearl. Alizarin Crimson Hue is a very intense/saturated red so a little bit goes a long way. If the color is too light you can add more of the Alizarin Crimson Hue and if it is too dark you can add in more Pearl.
Roll a medium thickness (#3 setting) sheet of the gold mixture. Cut a circle out using the 7/8” diameter cutter. Center the circle of clay on the top of the clasp and gently press into place. Make sure that you get the edges of the circle pressed down all the way around. You don’t want to have any gaps around the edges.
Bake the clasp with base layer of clay attached per package instructions. Allow to cool completely. Tip: With a project like this it is a good idea to bake in stages; doing so prevents you from ending up with dents and fingernail marks in the base layer as you add more embellishment pieces.
Roll a medium thickness (#3 setting) sheet of the pink mixture. Using the heart shaped cutter, cut out 4 hearts.
Position the four pink hearts on top of the clap so that the points of the hearts are facing into each other and just barely touching. The pattern will look a little like a four leaf clover.
Bake the clasp with the clay attached per package instructions. Allow to cool completely.
Pinch off a small amount of the gold mixture of clay and roll a small ball that is about 1/8” – 3/16” in diameter. Gently place it into the center the points of the hearts, and lightly press the top of the ball flat. Pressing the top of the ball flat will make it easier to position the iron-on crystal.
Using the tweezers pick up the iron-on crystal and set it into the middle of the flat top ball of clay. Once you have it in position use the cut end of your acrylic roller to press the crystal into the clay just a little bit. The end of a roller, or flat back end of a tool, makes it easier to apply even and level pressure when adding crystals.
Bake the clasp with the clay and crystal attached per package instructions. Allow to cool completely.
If desired you can paint a thin layer of glaze over the surface of the clay, but try to avoid getting the glaze on the crystal.
For variations try making these using different metal tones and shapes of the clasps, different colors of clay, other shapes of cutters, and different kinds of iron-on embellishments (crystals, pearls, nail heads).
