diy: glitter and clay earrings

We love love working with clay and have loved working with Premo Clay on these earrings. This stuff is so versatile and easy to use. The perfect crafting medium. But, seriously. I've made so many jewelry pieces with clay and they all look so different yet, they all look great!

To make these earrings you will need some Premo Clay, some glitter, 2 earwires, and some extra wire or 2 eye pins. Either will do. You will also need some jewelry pliers. Preheat your oven to 275 degrees.

Start by mixing some glitter with a little bit of clay. Use as much or as little as you would like.

I ended up adding three more rounds of glitter to get it mixed thoroughly.

Take your eye pin and bend it into a teardrop shape with your pliers.

Take a little bit of clay and fill in the empty space in the teardrop.

Bake in the oven for 30 minutes.

Attach the earwires to the clay/wire pieces. If the earrings don't lay correctly, use a jump ring in between the two.
