Clay Tags

I have always admired the gorgeous clay tags

that the lovely Ness from Marley & Lockyer makes

I finally got around to making some myself

 I worked on them a bit more last night and was so excited to share them that I used my phone to take some pics!

Excuse the quality of the photos, it was dark and I was tired.


Some are for me

Some are for gifts

I want to personalise these star ones to use as place tags for our Christmas lunches

That way everyone will know where to sit and they will have something special to take home and use on the tree next year!

What do you think?

Ness has no worries about me taking over her business

but I am happy with the way they turned out.



  1. They look great Nellie. I've just come back from the art store with some clay too...great minds think alike!

  2. They look great I've been itching to try this too.

  3. Me too, me too! I have the clay and stamps at the ready - just need the time to make it happen. I hope they turn out as nice as yours Nellie. ;-)

  4. Nellie, I love them! you are so clever! Does the clay break very easily? You did a wonderful job!
    hope you are having a great day!!

  5. Nellie, these are all just gorgeous! Were they difficult to make? I love the believe one the best :D Fabulous job. Huge hugs to you ~ Tina xx

  6. Great stuff Nellie....what sort of clay did you use? They look terrific.

  7. Well done Nellie. I purchased some from Ness. Wish I had some time to have a go. Maybe some table setting tags in the new year for the guests. You should be very proud of yourself.

  8. You've been a very busy bee. I have some clay at home and will give them a go too. xx

  9. They look great. I have some clay sitting out on my bench waiting for me to play with it. Yours look wonderful and such a special gift for your guests.

  10. Your clay tags turned out beautiful, Nellie! I love your idea of using them as place cards for the table!

  13. Hi Nellie! Believe it or not, I was surfing around the net looking for instructions on how to make those darling clay tags and I fell in to your beautiful blog! :)

    Can you tell me more about how you made them? What type of clay did you use? Do you have to bake them? What did you use for a round form? What did you use for the pretty black lettering? Do you letter it before you bake it or after?

    lol! I know....lots of questions, but I would really love to make some of these for family Christmas gifts this year. I had previously purchased some "love you" tags from marleyandlockyer and just love them to bits! But I also knew that there HAD to be an easy way of making them for myself. :)

    Any help or advice you could give me would be soooo appreciated! Thanks - and I'm your newest follower! :)

  14. They look great - it's a perfect gift and decoration!

  15. Oh way to go girlfriend :) They look fab! xo

  16. So CLEVER! I wonder if you gave them a coat of spray clear matte finish and then do the pen thing that might help? I've run into that kind of problem before too.

    Warm blessings,
