Salt dough – 2 cups flour, 1 cup salt, cold water. Mix until has consistency of play dough. bake at 250 for 2 hours, then cool and paint any color….good recipe for thumbprint pendants.
DIY? I think so. Top: spray painted salt dough hearts just posted here, bottom: K’ien $99 Arc de Trio Necklace made out of Silver Plated Brass here. I’d use Fimo or Sculpey (on sale 4/$5 at Michaels this week), paint them, etc…
