Amazing Polymer Clay Peacock Necklace Tutorial

By on Sunday, December 06, 2015 3 Comments

It`s not surprising polymer clay is popular with the artistic crowd especially those with a talent for sculpting.  Designs can really wow with this material.  One amazing tutorial for a polymer clay peacock necklace is by Christi Friesen over on Fire Mountain Gems.  Her complex Peacock Pizzazz design appeared on the cover of their catalogue some years ago.


The necklace is basically strung together once the various components were completed. There are many steps.  I noticed she used armature wire to support the largest piece.  She also pre-attached crimped beading wire to the clay so she could add beaded strands later. I also loved how she used bugle beads for the bird`s crest!

A masterpiece!
