Description :

Navratri the season for all things colourful and vibes that are filled with fun and grandeur. Here is a necklace that we have made with resplendent shades and hues. A great DIY that you can make and customise it perfectly with your outfits for Navra

STEP 1 : Prepare the base

Take paper canvas and cut it into a crescent moon shape, make two such forms. Stick them back-to-back with Fevicryl Fabric Glue so that it is firm and sturdy.

STEP 2 : Start developing the necklace

Take colourful paper threads & woolen strands and stick them close to each other, filling the crescent shape completely. Use Fevicryl Fabric Glue for sticking.

Leave some gap towards the base & top curvatures for pom-poms to be sandwiched in between later.

STEP 3 : Giving a good finish

Cut off any excess thread strands to get a good and even finish.

STEP 4 : Complete with threads

Once the threads are stuck the base of the necklace would look like this.

STEP 5 : Make pom poms

Take the colourful woolen threads and make a few pom-poms with extra threads towards each end to fasten onto the necklace later.

STEP 6 : Sticking the pom-poms

Take the pom-poms and start sticking them on the two curvatures using Fevicryl Fabric Glue.

STEP 7 : Prepare the dough / clay

Take Fevicryl Mouldit – resin base & hardener, mix well to form an even soft dough.

STEP 8 : Clay slab technique

Roll the dough to make a medium thick slab using a rolling pin.

STEP 9 : Making the clay enhancements

Mark & cut a square from the clay slab to make small ornate enhancements on the neck piece. Use a paper cutter / clay carving tools for ease.

STEP 10 : Ornate pattern

Take some clay and by the coiling technique make an ornate pattern on the square base of the pendant. Stick using Fevicryl Fabric Glue.

STEP 11 : The clay ornate pieces

Make around four clay ornate pieces for the necklace.

STEP 12 : Painting the clay elements

Start painting the clay elements in an antiquated silver effect using Fevicryl Acrylic Colours - Black 02 & Fevicryl Acrylic Colour Pearl Metallic - Silver 351. This would give it an oxidised look. Enhance the centre.

STEP 13 : Sticking the clay elements

Place and stick the ornate clay pieces on the base of the necklace using Fevicryl Fabric Glue, just like you see in the image.

STEP 14 : Assembling and final look

Stitch the jewellery thread / cord to the two ends of the necklace. Your stunning Navratri neckpiece is now ready to be worn.
