Glow in the Dark Jewelry

Kate Pullen

Glow in the dark jewelry is perfect for Halloween. It is easy to make your own special glow in the dark jewelry using glow in the dark polymer clay and rubber stamps. Glow in the dark polymer clay looks just like any other polymer clay until it is dark, and then the full spooky greenish glow is revealed! Glow in the dark polymer clay gradually loses its glow, however it can easily be 'recharged' by placing it in front of a strong light for a while.

Glow in the dark polymer clay is easy to use. It can be used in the same way as any other polymer clay. The best type of stamp to use is a stamp with a strong image which can be stamped in a single color. Use a permanent ink such as StazOn as this will not smudge or smear.

Supplies Required

  • Glow in the dark polymer clay
  • Craft rolling pin (or pasta maker) and sharp knife
  • Rubber stamps and inks
  • Ribbon, cord and earring findings as required
  • Pliers to fit findings if required

Instructions

  1. Condition the polymer clay (see How to Condition Polymer Clay for more information)
  2. Roll the polymer clay into a sheet of about 1/4" thick
  3. Cut shapes from the polymer clay to make pendants and earrings (you could use cookie cutters to cut shapes of a consistent size)
  4. Pierce a hole so that the shapes can be attached to earrings or a pendant cord
  5. Bake the polymer clay according to the manufacturers instructions
  6. When the clay is cool, stamp an image
  7. Attach findings or thread a cord through the necklace and enjoy!
