DIY: triangular clay pendant

So, I'm not usually a big jewelry person.  I generally only wear earrings for special occasions, or just to make sure my holes don't close up.  Necklaces only go with certain outfits, and I hafta be in the right mood to put on a bracelet.  When I make jewelry, I usually just give it away.
But with this necklace, it's a TOTALLY different story.  I would probably wear this every day of the year if I had the choice.  But since it only goes with one shirt in my wardrobe, I come up with every excuse to wear that shirt:)
I considered doing a tutorial, but it's just too simple.  Pretty much cut triangles out of three different colors of clay, use a toothpick to poke a hole through one color, bake according to instructions, glue together (make sure it's a glue that works with clay), and attach to a chain somehow.  I just wire wrapped the hole, and then slid it onto my chain.
The best part is, this necklace doesn't have a front and back.  It can go either way!
