It was a cold day at the beach, I really did not feel like going out and freezing my behind off. Instead I decided I would make a cup of hot tea and create a few new pieces for my Etsy boutique. I had purchased five rainbow moonstone cabochons, five omega silver chains and silver polymer baking clay a few weeks ago. They had all coincidentally arrived earlier that day. I had a plan to put all these elements together in a way I had not tried before. I have done tons of beading, chunky silver pieces and such. These piece were all so beautiful on their own. I wanted to create something more simplistic, a minimalist style piece. I decided I would bake the stone onto the omega silver chain, as if it were floating.

     I set the oven at 275ºF and grabbed my omega silver chain, a small piece of the silver polymer baking clay and a stone. I laid my chain out straight and found my center (I double checked my center later on). I took my small piece of clay and pressed it onto the back of the rainbow moonstone cabochon. I evened out the clay to only stay on the back of the stone and not go over the edges. Once I did this, I picked up my chain and checked the center again and pressed the chain into the back of my stone. I pinched the clay over the chain and evened it out. Once I was satisified with the results I placed it on my cookie sheet with the stone facing down. I made four more the same way and placed the cookie sheet in the oven for 15 minutes.

     Once I took the cookie sheet out I let cool for a few minutes. I then grabbed a 4 in 1 nail block you would use to shape, smooth, buff and shine your fingernails with. I shaped the hard clay and removed any excess around the edges. Then I smoothed it out, buffed and polished. Lastly, I took my glossy spray sealer and gave the hardened clay a protective layer against moisture and a glossy shine.
