"Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!" -Psalm 139:23-24

I've been making these necklaces for a while now and people seem to really like them. I figured I'd do a tutorial on how I do it, so you could make one too! You will need some polymer clay, a small stamp set, something to roll the clay out with, something to cut the clay with (a knife will do), a toothpick, some jump rings, a lobster claw clasp and some chain.
Pre-heat your oven to 225 (or whatever your clay says). Roll your clay into a ball.
Roll it out to be about 1/4 inch in width.
Cut two lines in your clay.
Stamp whatever word you want in between lines.
Cut two lines to make a rectangle and poke to holes in the top corners.
Peel the rest of the clay up and you have your nameplate. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes. After the clay cooked, I added a layer of gold paint to make it shine more. You can skip this step.
Attach jump rings to the necklace and to the chain. Then attach the chain to the jump rings and to the lobster claw.
And then you have your necklace! I've done these with many many different words, you can see them in the shop. And if you don't want to make one yourself, you can always order one from us!

Anytime someone asks me why I moved to Nashville, I cringe a little. The truth is, there is more than one reason. I could get into all of them, but the simple answer is... I moved here for music. The reason I picked Nashville was because music was here. It's so hard for me to admit that that was even a factor in my decision to move. When I am asked this question, I never want to vocalize the real answer, because by the end of the conversation, I will have had to admit that I am a failure.
