Introduction: Indian Polymer Clay Jewelry
Polymer Clay is used for many purposes one of which jewelry. From classic to modern designs all can be done by polymer clay. So I have planned to prepare a jewelry based on Indian design.I preferred some shiny colors. I selected Gold which is very much needed and rose. One of the shiny shades of rose is Fuchsia Pearl.
Step 1: Materials Needed
1. Polymer Clay - Black,Gold,Fuchsia Pearl
3. Round Cutter-2 different shapes
4. Polymer Clay gun
6. Beading Wire-Black

6. And additional to it as shown in the design cut out the part which is needed with the cutter.
7.Place it above the place circle and lightly press without changing the shape.
8. With the help of polymer clay gun extract gold color in round shape.
9. Cut it with a blade.
10. Place it in a arc near the rose color.

12. With the help of toothpick put holes near the arc.

Step 4: Preparing Earrings
Follow the same procedure as the pendant for the earrings except the following

3. Instead of eye pins use head pins and attach it from the bottom.

5. Follow the same procedure for black and gold.
6. Make 30 black beads and 12 gold beads.
Step 6: Baking
Place the pendant, earring and beads in a tray and bake it as per the instruction of your polymer clay.
Step 7: Earrings Ready....
1. Now take the earring and turn the head pin in front
2. Cut the excess wire and roll it in with round pliers
3. Now take a jump pin and connect both the earring and fish hook.
4. Follow the same procedure for another earring
