It’s been a great week of crafting: I got the old crafting clay out and made some earrings I’ve been planning on making for ages! These aren’t a new idea or anything but I’ve been wanting these for a long time and it was so great to finally have the time to make them.

Here’s a step by step on how I made them:

1// Gather your materials.

Craft clay

Earring backs

Nail polish

2// Kneed the craft clay and roll into a ball. Flatten the ball.

3// Use a craft/clay knife (or a regular knife in my case) to cut out a heart shape.

5// Bake in the oven at 110c for 30 mins. Do not bake over 130c!

6// Wait for the hearts to cool then glue the earring back to the back of them.

7// Use the nail polish to paint them. Nail polish gives a really nice finish, it dries quickly and it leaves no brush marks.

As a side note – in the 30 minutes these were baking I made a couple more things with the craft clay and with some of the thread I hand hanging around.

Do you like? I was thinking of putting some of these things on our ETSY  page.

Take care,
