Clay Keyring Tutorial

By on February 20th, 2013

Suspense is going over today! I am sharing  the tutorial of that sneak peek image about which I’ve shared before in my last post..So Have a look and let me know if  it is a cool reuse of any broken stuff..?

keyring making

KeyRing with clay/dough & some bling..actually I use some broken pieces & made something New.. after all some break ups are always good? agree..? let’s see how..,


Here it is my metal hair catcher which I broke suddenly while playing with it…hehe but really! but I was not in a mood to throw away these little pieces of butterfly.. so I saved this & after a couple days I create something fact useful from something useless.. Have a look at its Tutorial now!

You will need to have a piece of polymerClay/Dough, Modpodge extreme glitter & sparkle.a brush.. & the most important thing some bling stuff like rhinestones etc. (or you can follow my act of  breaking a beautiful accessory by chance..hehe)

clay keyring making

First I cut a dough piece(tutorial of  homemade dough..I use the same dough which I have made about two months back) & then place it over a non sticky surface.(make it no sticky by using vaseline) then press it a little & make a hole for passing any loop/jump ring through it. Then apply the modpodge sparkle over it & fix the metal pieces over the dough. & press with your careful about the rectangular shape to not to be disturbed.

Then again apply a coat of modpodge sparkle over the whole piece. and let it dry for about 10 hours. after getting dry, it will look a little dark in color.and more shiny too..

The next day I saw the dough piece was totally dry & shiny too..and ready to work on now.. If you would like you can enjoy this as a necklace too.. but as I am not much interested in wearing necklaces(although I have shared the making of many necklaces at my page), so I am making this as a keyring/key-chain..

And I just fix the jump ring into the hole & made it a keyring..

Beautiful Clay Keyring Tutorial

Here is a fun fact..I dont have any keys in use..really! I never have locked my room/closet/cupboards..I only did once my craft room during the wedding events of my brothers when there were many kids all around & were curious about my craft I did that time only.well yesterday when I was going to take pictures for this keyring, I was searching keys..but later I ask my mother & she gave me these keys of any drawer..hehe..

Have a Wonderful day!

I can imagine that people around you would be sharing their precious but broken jewellery or related stuff with you. Because you are the person to transform that stuff into ‘crafts in a very creative manner.
Thanks for sharing your awesome ideas and making this world a more beautiful place by recycling.
