Polymer & Paper Clip Necklace

 Polymer clay pressed into the round paper clip and cured in the oven.  Quick and fun.
Above are the round paper clips I purchased at Office Max.  Below-after you make a loop and twist it sideways, press the polymer clay into it and bake. 
I've been laid up with a left sprained ankle since Saturday, April 28 when I missed a step and fell.  Saw the orthopedic surgeon who recommended a semi-cast with a boot and in a wheel chair for two weeks to see if I can avoid surgery. The wheel chair is also to help my right knee heal from the fall.  I can create with polymer, but the hubby has to load and unload it from the oven located in the garage because I'm in the wheel chair.  He hasn't complained once. How sweet is that?
