Gothic Salt Dough Pendant

Salt dough (or play dough as it was called when I was a kid) isn’t just for children, you can make all sorts of funky things with it, including jewellery! Just shape it, bake it and decorate it, it’s that simple.

There are a gazillion salt dough recipes out there (thank you Google), but most are just equal quantities of plain flour and salt mixed to a dough consistency with water.

There’s no great mystery to this pendant, it’s exactly as it appears.

I rolled out the dough, cut the cross sort of shape, put a hole in the top with a chopstick and baked for an hour at 140 degrees Celsius.

A little bit of sanding removed a few rough edges, then some copper coloured acrylic paint on both sides.


Then a few plastic gemstones in gold and green colours glued on the top.

A large oval jump ring and some black ribbon, and it was done.




It looks great against my hand dyed green tee shirt, and with some jeans, black boots and a black cardi, was perfect to wear to work!
