I love that all things arrowhead and southwest inspired are trending right now (naturally). While you could spend hours searching in fields for an arrowhead or simply buy one, I decided to create this faux arrowhead necklace out of Souffle Clay from Sculpey. Now before you begin to panic with horrible memories from art class clay, stop! Sculpey’s Souffle Clay was so easy to work with especially with the tool kit. The clay isn’t sticky or too hard, it’s easy to handle and requires very little clean up.

Start by warming up the clay with clean and washed hands, you will want to work with it on a clean disposable surface like wax paper or foil. I flattened my clay with my hands using finger prints to add “arrowhead texture”. Once your clay is about 1/4 inch thick, cut it into a proper shape – don’t worry about the straight lines, these can be fixed with your fingers for a rough edge.
Take your O Ring or Jump Ring and push in a hole for the clasp and remove, you will glue this in once the arrowhead has hardened. Bake the clay in the oven for 30 minutes at 275 degrees on a glass or metal surface. Then decorate!
Apply a layer of gold to the edges, add glitter to the center with Mod Podge and glue in the ring for the chain. Allow everything to dry completely, letting the necklace dry overnight is best. Then it’s ready to wear! Be sure to check out Sculpey on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.
