Make Your Own Polymer Clay Cartouche Necklace

Ancient Egypt has long fascinated me. I love the history, the stories, the Biblical events … everything.  When my husband and I journeyed to New York City in 2010, we went to the King Tut exhibit. One of the things I have always wanted was my own gold cartouche. Sadly, with the price tag being well over $200 there was no way I could afford it. But as always, polymer clay to the rescue … with an awesome DIY polymer clay cartouche tutorial so you can make your own pendant too!

This project is so much fun you might even end up ‘walking like an Egyptian’ before it’s completely baked.

Natasha Beaded Keychain Polymer Clay Projects Tutorial by KatersAcres

Polymer Clay Projects Requested

I love it when my fans & readers have specific polymer clay projects in mind.  I have had several requests lately for a fun beaded project tutorial.  As many of you know I’m not really a jewelry person, not because I don’t like it, because I most certainly do, but rather because I’m not a person that tends to “accessorize.”  I wear a wedding ring & my earrings and that’s it.  Sometimes you’ll catch me wearing a watch, but other than that … nadá.  So while I love to make beads, since I don’t wear jewelry (or sell it in my Etsy shop), I’m never sure what to do with the beads.  So for those of you who are like me, here’s a really fun handmade Natasha Bead Keychain.  Let’s get started, shall we?
