I’ve been having so much fun with clay lately. I will definitely be posting some more pictures once I’ve finished all the treats that I’ve been making this week.
It was Christmas last year that I started making jewellery with clay. I wanted Christmas-themed charms for my jewellery, and I couldn’t find anything. I decided to try to make my own, making Christmas trees and stockings, and they turned out pretty good. I wanted to branch out and do a little more this year. I made some a few weeks ago, but I don’t have any left, because I sold them all at the market. I made a few more this week. Here’s the first one:
I’ve been selling the earrings and hair clips on my card, so hopefully more people with check out the facebook page or this blog.
And here’s a close up:
I wish I would have taken pictures step by step to show you how easy it was to make these. I can try to explain though.
Step 1: Soften your clay by kneading it and rolling it in your hands.
Step 2: Make the inner bud by taking a small ball of clay, and smoothing it out to an oval shape. Then wrap to get the rose bud. Here is where I inserted the head pin for the earring.
Step 3: Continue to wrap petals around the first bud until you have reached the size you want. Bake according to package directions for approximately 15 minutes.
Once cool, add a crystal (if you wish) to the pin, and make a loop. Open the loop of the earring, and connect them all together. Enjoy your new rose earrings!
