How to make your own statement earrings, necklaces, and rings with these liquid clay jewelry making tutorials. Follow along with this video tutorial and step by step instructions using Sculpey Liquid Polymer Clay. Make some for yourself, for friends, or to sell!


A few weeks ago, we created some incredible boho-inspired jewelry from Sculpey Liquid Clay. Today, I’m so excited to work with Sculpey again to show you a brand new color they just released, Greige Granite! This new shade looks like a natural stone with subtle flecks of darker tones within the liquid clay. It really gives some great dimension to anything you make with it.

So today, we’ll be making several unique jewelry pieces to update your collection and give you a brand new set!

Before we dive into these clay jewelry tutorials, what exactly is Sculpey Liquid Clay?

Liquid polymer clay is a bakeable medium that stays lightweight and flexible after it’s baked, making it perfect for fashion accessories and other DIY tutorials. It comes in a bottle with a twistable spout, making it easy to squeeze into molds or draw with. You can bake it with your regular, at-home oven to create unique pieces in just a few minutes!

How To Use Liquid Sculpey

  1. Preheat your oven to 275 degrees and prep your Liquid Sculpey molds by heating for 15 minutes.
  2. Choose which color of liquid clay you would like to use.
  3. Remove your molds and squeeze the liquid clay to fill.
  4. Use the plastic squeegee (provided in your mold packaging) to remove any excess clay.
  5. Place the mold in your oven at 275 degrees for 15 minutes.
  6. Remove from your oven and let cool.
  7. Once the clay is comfortable to touch, gently remove it from the silicone mold. Your clay will stay pliable once it’s dried but will retain its shape.
  8. Now you can get creative and use your clay shapes to create something new!

The first of our three clay jewelry making projects is this awesome statement necklace. Using Greige Granite clay to create the center “stones” adds such an impact to the overall piece of the necklace, doesn’t it?

Necklace Supplies:

  • Greige Granite Sculpey Liquid Clay
  • Black Sculpey Liquid Clay
  • Bezel Sculpey Silicone Bakeable Mold
  • Cabochon Sculpey Silicone Bakeable Mold
  • Industrial Craft Glue
  • Black Faux Leather

How To Make A Bib Necklace

  1. Create several liquid clay shapes using the Bezel and Cabochon Silicone Bakeable Molds. I used Black Liquid Clay in the Bezel mold and Greige Granite in the Cabochon mold in all three sizes.
  2. Squeeze a small amount of industrial craft glue into the Bezel shape and gently press the coordinating Cabochon shape inside. Repeat for all of your Liquid Clay pieces.
  3. Now it’s time to get creative! Take a piece of black faux leather and begin experimenting with the placement of your clay shapes on it. Play around until you find a layout you like.
  4. Use your glue to secure your pieces in place directly onto the faux leather.
  5. Once your glue is dry, use fabric scissors to trim along the outside of your new necklace. Be sure to leave about 1/2″ at the outside edges to make holes for your jewelry chain.
  6. Punch small holes on either outside edge of your new bib necklace.
  7. The final step is to attach your jewelry chain to the small holes on either side of your statement bib necklace. Try it on and admire your awesome new jewelry piece!

How To Make Liquid Clay Earrings

  1. Create two sets of liquid clay shapes using the round Bezel and Cabochon Silicone Bakeable Molds. I used Black Liquid Clay in the Bezel mold and Greige Granite in the Cabochon mold in the two smallest sizes.
  2. Once your clay is cooled and removed from the molds, gently squeeze a small amount of industrial craft glue into the center of your Bezel shape and press the coordinating Cabochon shape inside. Repeat for all of your Liquid Clay pieces.
  3. While your glue is drying, squeeze some Black Liquid Clay into the arrow-inspired strip in the Boho-Chic Sculpey Silicone Bakeable Mold. Use the plastic scraper (provided in your mold packaging) to remove any excess clay before baking.
  4. Once your black strip is cool, remove it from the mold and use scissors to cut the strip in half. This will become the link between your two statement earring pieces.
  5. Squeeze a small amount of Industrial Craft Glue on either end of the backside of your black clay strip.
  6. Attach one end of the black clay strip to the backside of one small Bezel Clay Piece and the other end to the backside of your medium-sized Bezel Clay Mold.
  7. Secure a stud earring blank to the smaller Bezel Clay mold to complete your drop earring before repeating steps 5 and 6 to create a matching earring.
  8. Let the glue dry and try on!
