I love a GOOD home decor piece and I love to be inspired. This month for the Inspired by DIY challenge, I chose to create a jewelry cone and dish inspired by West Elm. My daughters had a bit of a say in this challenge, since this will be in their room. Since moving into our home I have had some type of vision of what I want for each room and this piece is totally up my alley when it comes to my vision for their space. I used oven Sculpey’s oven baked clay from my local hobby store. The one thing about this clay is that it comes in a variety of color. There were other brands as well and some metallic clay that I was interested in purchasing, but I decided to play it safe and go white.

Steps to create a jewelry dish
- Cut a piece of clay from the block and roll into a ball.
- With a rolling pin, flatten out the clay
- Once flattened to your likeness, with a cup or dish trace a circle on the clay. *I used the cup to create an imprint and tore the extra clay off.
- Once the dish is shaped to your liking, place in the oven and follow directions on package.
- Once baked, draw desired image or paint
- Once paint is dry, paint gloss glaze on and let it dry
