Hello dear friends! One of my favorite things to make is unique jewelry. It’s a way to wear something personalized to you and that looks beautiful. It’s also something you know no one else has and that can be kind of fun too! I can’t wait to show you how to make these very pretty Ink Transfer Jewelry Clay Pendants. These are simple to make and totally customizable!

MAKE CLAY PENDANTS:
First, prep your space by using a piece of parchment paper over your work surface. Inside the Envirotex Jewelry Clay Kit is a pair of disposable gloves, full instructions, and two containers, one part A and one part B. To make the pendant you’ll take equal amounts of A and B, rolling them into a ball helps you to determine if you have an equal amount. Make sure you are using your gloves! You’ll then combine the two by kneading them together until thoroughly mixed.
Next, shape the jewelry clay into the pendant shape and size that you want. I split this into two different pendants and wanted to make them a little different to show a few things you can do with this product.
If you choose to dye your clay you will use some pigment coloring. You just add a few drops and knead it into the clay until it is a solid color. I may have used a little too much blue in mine, but I do love the color.
ADDING INK IMAGES:
Place your laser printed images onto your clay while it is still quite sticky. Don’t press too hard because you don’t want the paper IN the clay, you just want the image on it.
Let your pendants cure for at least 12 hours.
COMPLETE INK TRANSFER:
Now that the pendants are cured, run them under warm water and slowly rub off the printer paper. The paper will peel off and the ink will remain in the clay. That’s how to do the ink transfer!
The final step is to spray the pendants with Resin Spray. This will give it a nice shiny coat and seal up the pendants.
Let dry, then add jewelry hardware as you prefer!
