Pumpkin Moon Pendant

This is a mixed media pendant that I made for a reader challenge in Cloth Paper Scissors.  It wasn't chosen, but I learned a lot in the process of designing and making it.
The first step was creating a hinge and clasp from copper wire.  Then the polymer clay pumpkin was formed around the wire frame.  The little paper clay moon was polished with Perfect Pearls and nested in a bed of the beautiful yarn that I used for the necklace and detail.
The pendant measures about three inches long.  I so love a challenge!


  1. Love how you made your own hinge! I have been searching everywhere for small hinges to include in a polymer clay piece floating around in my head, but I never thought to make one. Thanks for sharing!
