Polymer clay earrings are fun, easy, and fast to make. Make yourself a pair of these popular and trendy designs. Create custom colors and designs like modern marble, floral and botanical patterns, abstract landscapes, and arch shapes.
polymer clay in various colors
earring backs (either posts, hooks, or hoops)
flexible superglue such as Loctite Gel or Gorilla Glue Gel Superglue
parchment paper or foil
acrylic rolling pin (Don’t use the same wooden rolling pin that you use with food.)
X-Acto, craft knife, or clay slicer
clay cutters or cookie cutters
toothpick or a large needle
flat baking sheet
Condition the clay by rolling and kneading it in your hands. Take care not to trap air bubbles in your clay.
For slab designs, roll the clay out to a thickness of 1/8″, or just a bit thicker. Create a design or pattern on your slab with smaller pieces of clay. Roll flat.
Use cutters or a craft knife to cut out your earring shapes. Use a needle or toothpick to makes holes for jump rings.
Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and bake according to package directions.
Add jewelry components with flexible gel superglue.
