You do not need a mold to get an intricate polymer clay design. Gloria Uhler of Domestic Diva Online has a snowflake polymer clay pendant tutorial which just starts of  with a printed snowflake.

Once printed, her template lets you cut out the shape which is then used to make an impression on the clay.

She also provides the cut file for the Silhouette and the SVG file for the Cricut and other cutters.  Using one of these electronic cutters means you avoid having to use scissors for the first step!

Notice the end caps on either end of her strung portion of her necklace?  Gloria has a neat tip on how to string the end caps and thus prepare for adding the ribbon. You could also use leather cord rather than ribbon.

The center rhinestone elements on the snowflake are pressed into the clay and baked with it.  Do test to make sure that they are secure. If not, add some E6000 glue.
