Introduction: Polymer Clay Earrings

Using wire and polymer clay to create earrings and pendants

Step 1:

Watching the video can help you to better understand some steps

Step 2:

wrap the wire around the crochet needle (or other cylinder shape)

Remove it from the needle and press the wire spiral with a plaque.

Adjust the wire to the shape you want.

Step 3:

Using 2 cookie cutters, with 2 different sizes, make a moon shape with the polymer clay

Place the wire frame over the edges and press it lightly

Cover the wire frame inner side with a roll of polymer clay and create some decorations. This will also help to keep the wire in place.

Step 4:

For the flowers choose the colors you want and mix them with white polymer clay to create gradient effect.

Place the bigger flowers at the center and distribute the smallest ones all the way around

Make a second pendant for the earrings and bake them in the oven, during 30 minutes at 110°C/230°F (I use Fimo in this project. If you use other brands verify the recommended time and temperature)

Step 5:

After baking apply a small chain and a fish hook earring and it's done!

You can also use this pendant on a necklace and apply other elements, like beads, crystals...
