Personalized Tag Necklaces

We spent a day making custom personalized ceramic necklaces.

Some are for a sled dog race, and one is a custom creation. You can put any words or images on your necklaces. In this case we used the word “Mush” along with paw prints. The other necklace is the names of their three dogs along with paw prints.

I used tiny letter stamps to create the words and handmade plaster or rubber stamps can be used to create images. After the clay has been formed and dried, paint with under glazes and coat with clear glaze. Fire in kiln.

Next step is adding jump rings. See photo for the correct way to open a jump ring. You want to twist the ends sideways. Do not pull them apart. Once the pendant is on, twist the jump ring closed again.

Now string it up and wear it!
