parchment paper (to avoid staining surfaces)
rolling pin or glass jar
small salt bowl or dish

Step 2: Interlace Colors
On top of a piece of parchment paper, press firmly on your clay rope, further integrating the colors into each other. Twist and turn the rope and fold on top of itself, mixing and swirling the colors together.
Step 3: Flatten the Rope
With your hands, roll rope into a ball, and roll out with a rolling pin or glass jar until approximately 1/4-inch flat.
Step 4: Bake Clay
Preheat oven to 275 degrees F. Using a small oven safe bowl (about the size of a salt dish) trace and cut out circles from clay using an X-Acto knife. Place the clay circle inside the oven safe bowl, and bake for 15 minutes.
Step 5: Paint Trim
Once completely cool, remove clay from bowl and paint the rim for detail. Place your favorite jewelry inside.
