As avid crafters, we’re no strangers to the fun of making friendship necklaces! Throughout the years, we’ve made our best friends all kinds of fun matching or coordinating jewelry to celebrate our relationships. Recently, however, we decided to nostalgically make some friendship pieces for fun and we wanted to try something other than the classic woven embroidery floss designs we’re used to. We also wanted to learn a new technique and work with a new medium, so we turned to working with polymer clay! Of course, you can make endless fun designs from clay because you’re working from scratch, but one of the most interesting things we found in our search for friendship based ideas was that jewelry shaped like adorable kawaii foods is a huge trend. Of course, with an idea so cute, paired up necklaces weren’t the only food designs we found; you’d be surprised how many adorable clay food accessories there are out there, ready for the making.
Just in case you’ve been looking for a new technique and a fun, friendship based project too, check out these adorable DIY jewelry pieces shaped like tiny foods!
