Earrings are my favorite piece of jewelry to create! I love color coordinating  them with different outfits. It’s the perfect way to add a splash of color and pizzazz to your style. My Etsy Shop is full of unique Wearable Art jewelry.I hope you enjoy making these earrings, add your own spin on them, try them in sparkly gold or silver! Happy crafting!

STEP ONE:  Condition a segment of Bronze Premo! clay, roll out on the #2 setting of your pasta machine. Cut out 2 circles with a 1″ cutter.

STEP TWO:  Form each circle into a tube bead shape. Roll until smooth.

Wearable Art for your Ears

Wearable Art for your Ears

What’s on my work-table this week?  Earrings!  I love making earrings, they are practically the only jewelry I wear, other than my wedding ring.

I created a fern mold & made a few sets of these, with 14K gold findings. They are quite thin & delicate, with a generous coating of resin, to add shine & depth.

Of course, I had to make some purple earrings too, my favorite color!

These “Fairy Wing” earrings are something a bit different for me. I wasn’t sure I liked them & I almost threw them in the reject bowl (yes, I have a Large reject bowl) but I managed to tweak them a bit & they turned out quite interesting!

I made these leaf shaped earring from an old Kaleidoscope cane. I love Hot Pink & Orange together, it’s such a 70’s retro look.

Tree of Happiness Pendants in Polymer Clay

Tree of Happiness Pendants in Polymer Clay

The Tree of Happiness pendant is a new addition to my Etsy Shop this summer. I love trying new designs, and trees are a favorite of mine. Gardening is one of my many passions. We recently planted a Norfolk Pine tree, and 2 Red Cedars. The shape of these particular trees reminds me of Christmas trees!

These pendants are available in my Etsy Shop Beadazzle Me
