Thanks this helped a lot. But I do have one question: could you explain how you hollowed the ball? Please I tried to but it kept changing shape and I couldn't do it.

It was difficult to do, but what I did was I flattened the clay and started to make it round as well as i could. Then when it was relatively round with an opening in the front, I started the detail in the front. What you are trying to do is to flatten it so when you round it out with will already be hollow. I wouldn't try to make a solid ball and then try to hollow it out.

This is weird, but one of the things you could do to make it easier is to get something out of those small machines at things like supermarkets. The small things that come in bubbles like this (www.gumball.com/images/product… then you can use the capsule! Just cut it with sissors to make it shorter (it would be too long if you didn't) and then form the clay around it~ But you would have to remember to poke a hole at the top so you can attach the wire for the jewel and the necklace chain!~

I hope this helped! If not please feel free to ask me~ :3

How did you put on the jewel? Did you do it after spray paint

I put it on a clear string, then you poke a hole in the top if the necklace so you can string it through After you spray paint it. The jewel is one of the last things to add. You just put a little bit of hot glue in the hole you poked earlier and string the clear string through and let it cool off. Then your done! Hope that helps~~

Thankyou for the wonderful guide =)
Can i double check something!? Have you wrapped the rings around completely so that they join? or are they all seperate or half rings?

Thankyou again ^^

I made all the rings individually and just made it look like they were one continuous ring/swirl.

Thanks alot for this tutorial :3 (Either make my own or buy it on ebay for $250 - no thanks!)
I don't understand the point of the clear string though, or how do attach the ring/how to attach the chain.

♥ The clear string went through the crystal in the middle to make it look like it was floating in there (With some going through the top of the necklace)

♥ The ring is attached in 2 ways. 1) just hot glue it on OR 2) slide it down after the chain is done.

♥ The chain is attached by the extra clear string that you left sticking out of the top of the necklace. (sorry I should have showed that more clearly!)To make it sturdier you can put a little hot glue there too!

Hope this helps!

Is there any sort of paint, gel, or liquid/spray substance that may give it a shiny look?

you cant really tell in the pic but the necklace looked really shiny from the paint. But iv heard of people putting clear nail polish on it to make it shiny, I've never tried it but that may work :)

Pretty simple to understand! :)

Going to go out and buy materials tonight now! I'm going to use sculpy though, since it's a bit stronger and I can bake it. (I've had bad success with model magic) Plus it saves me the step of painting.
But thanks! The gist of your instructions were pretty good.

Aww Your Welcome~♥
Well what I did was
Day 1:
Mold it (2-3 hours give or take) then paint with Gesso or white paint
Then let dry over night (so it can harden and become strong enought to hold on its own)
Day 2:
Spray paint silver and let dry (1-2 hours depending on type of paint you get)
then put everything together (ring, jewel, chain) and that took maybe 5-10 mins
