All About Allsorts:

Do you like making things that resemble food?  Me too!

Try your hand at making this Licorice Allsorts Necklace.  It is made from polymer clay.   The Licorice Allsorts Necklace makes a fun colorful neck adornment.   Keep it for yourself or give it as a gift.  You may need to fend off any sweet tooth’s who try to eat it though.

The licorice beads are medium level difficulty.  For a good result, you will need a steady hand and a light touch. Some might find this a bit of a challenge. If you have any licorice bead failures don’t despair, use the clay to roll onto spherical beads to get a nice marble effect.

Kids will have a great time rolling off cuts into beads to use to make their own necklaces.  My kids aged 3 and 5 made the spherical beads pictured.

Licorice Allsorts Necklace, What you need:

  • Polymer Clay in bright yellow, hot pink, black and white. Try Sculpey or Fimo.
  • Colorful chord to use for necklace
  • Ruler
  • Very sharp cutting implement, I used a Sculpy blade, you could try a box cutter.
  • Clay roller – you need something hard and smooth, try the side of a glass cup.
  • Needle tool, you could use a toothpick or skewer.
  • Baking tray
  • Oven
