DIY CLAY JEWELLERY DISHES

Okay, so I have a bit of an obsession with Sculpley Clay. After making clay keyrings and a heart hanger I decided to create these jewellery dishes. Aren’t they wonderful?!

These little dishes (although you could use the same method to create larger ones) are perfect for jewellery on a bedside table; great for yourself, a handmade gift or as a thoughtful touch in your guest bedroom.

All you need is:

Sculpey Clay(I used Pearl White and Elephant Grey)

Rolling Pin

Bowl/something round

Sharp knife/scalpel

A chopstick, rubber stamp or something textured if you wish

Start by warming the clay in your hands to create a ball. For the marble effect I added small chunks of the grey into the white.

Roll it with a rolling pin (to around 1/4 inch thickness).

The next bit is a little fiddly but the great thing about this clay is that if you need to you can simply start again and re-mould it.

Take a bowl in the size you want your dish to be (I used a mug and a votive candle holder) and place it upside down on top of the clay, then using a sharp knife or scalpel cut the shape.

For the plain white dish I used a plastic chop stick to make little dots but you could use anything textured to personalise it. I used a rubber stamp to add a pattern to the heart hangerfor example.

Using your thumb, make dents around the edge then lift up and mould to create the flower-like effect.

For the smooth-edged dish I placed it inside a bowl to create the shape.

Place on a baking tray in an oven at 130 degrees celsius for around 15-25 minutes depending on the thickness of your clay.

Once cool, they’re ready to use or gift-wrap. It’s as simple as that!

Wouldn’t your loved one be over the moon if you handmade them a dish and then gave it to them with a piece of jewellery inside? The perfect gift and so thoughtful too.
