geometric clay dangle earrings

You will love working with this smooth and soft polymer clay. Bend, slice and shape the clay into beautiful jewelry pieces; then place on parchment paper. Bake in the oven for a maximum of 30 minutes at 230°F (110°C).
Step 1

Slice a piece of black, white, Pacific Blue, Cherry Red and Tangerine clay from each block.

Step 2

Knead and condition until moldable.

Step 3

Add a little black clay to your conditioned Pacific Blue clay to make navy.

Step 4

Roll out each color into different thicknesses of snake shapes, lay them next to each other, vertically, in the following order: white, Tangerine, Chery Red, navy and white. Use an acrylic roller, or clay machine, to flatten and blend as shown.

Step 5

Roll out more navy to about 1/8" [0.3 cm] thick and cut two semi-circle shapes.

Step 6

Use a small stylus tool to create a hole in the center towards the top of the hexagons and the bottom, flat, side of the semi-ovals. The holes should line up, as shown.

Step 7

Bake for 30 minutes at 230°F (110°C). Remove from oven and set aside to cool.

Step 8

Use a jump ring to attach a hexagon to a semi-oval.
TIP: To open and close a jump ring, simply grasp the jump ring on both sides with chain nose pliers and twist the ring open, from side-to-side. Never pull the jump ring which can cause distortion.

Step 9

Glue an ear port to the back and let dry.

Step 10
Repeat Steps 9-10 for a second earring.
