TUTORIAL
The fruit salad itself is very easy to create. All you need to know how to do is make cubes, spheres and oblong shapes. 
Take 1 part of the colored clay and mix it with 10 parts translucent clay. Roll the green clay into a ball and then roll it into an oblong shape. Take the red clay and roll it into a perfect ball. Flatten out the orange, yellow and white clay and cut it into cubes. Place the fruit pieces randomly on top of the bowl.
Add scented oil with a paintbrush. 
Bake for 25 minutes at 275 degrees.
Take the clay straight out of the oven and dunk it into ice water to bring out the translucent effect.
Pat dry
Coat with two coats of glaze
Let the charm dry completely before adding jump ring.
That's all! I hope you had just as much fun making this fruit salad just as much as I did! Let me know how your charm turned out in the comments section below.
