I used a faux turqouise cabochon as an accent. If you do not already have something similar to use, follow Jessama Tutorials DIY video for creating faux turquoise and make a cabochon.  

Roll brown clay to about 1/8”.  Use oval cutter to cut base for turqouise cabochon. Use Bake & Bond to adhere turquoise cabochon to brown base.  

Use Bake & Bond to mount centered on leaf textured shape.  

Roll a strand with the brown clay. Add around the cabochon. Apply gold Metallic Lustre.

Use decorative cutter to cut half a shape from brown rolled clay. Use Bake & Bond and mount to back of pendant to create bail.
