Clay earrings diy

Several years ago, I discovered the beauty of polymer clay crafts. I started with some cute flowers that become earrings.  Making your own jewelry is fun. Unfortunately I don’t have any pictures with them to show you, but I make up for it by teaching you how to make them. This clay earrings diy tutorial will help you have a smooth start and beautiful creations. It is very simple and there’s no need for advance tools.

If you prepared the tools then let’s get to the actual work! If you are familiar with clay some of the steps may seem not necessary. I added them for those of who are not familiar with clay as a measure of creating similar shaped items.

If you like this earrings and want to add a bit more flavor to it this tutorial should be next on your to do list.

Step 1:

For creating your clay earrings you have to mold the clay into a cylinder and cut 10 slices out of it. Take your time wile cutting the slice in order to be equals. Each slice will be a petal. This way all the petals of the flower will have same dimension.

Step 2:

You have to create balls and then squeeze them into your fingers to obtain a circle. This way it is easier to have equal petals. Of course you can make a sheet and then cut the circle with a mold. It’s all on how confident you are on working with clay. Personally I don’t fill that the presented method is better since you don’t invest extra time in smoothing the edges.

Step 3:

As a next step you take the circles and for each of them unite half letting outside the other half. Take as reference the following photo. It should result the petal.

Lately I’m in love with vintage jewelry. So, I created a contrast with some gold powder. I didn’t insist much on the edges to create that erasing effect that we find in antique jewelry. What do you think? Aren’t them pretty?
