Roll out the clay – I went thin, a little under .25″.
I used my clay knife to free hand a heart. Remove the excess clay.
I then used the knife to smooth the edges by pressing the flat side up against the edges of the heart.
Using a toothpick or clay working tool, poke a hole on either side of the heart.
Place the clay onto a disposable tin pan and bake according to the directions on the box.
While your clay piece is baking, grab the thin bead wire and cut 2 pieces of wire – mine were about 8.5″ wide – your wire might be bigger or smaller depending on the size of your ankle. Fold wires in half.
Feed the ends of the wire through the spring ring clasp and bend over.
Feed the folded end of the wire through a crimping tube and slide it all the way down to the spring clasp, making sure all of the wire ends are through it and then squeeze nice and tight with pliers.
Next, attach the other piece of the spring clasp set to the other wire the same way.
Once your clay heart is baked and cool, you will insert one of the wires through the front of the heart.
Thread the wire through itself and pull tight.
Do the same for the other side. Pull both wires nice and tight.
Now you have a super stylish ankle for Summer!
