How to Make Clay Flower Earrings


Clay Flower Earrings Supplies


Step 1

Select 2 different colors for the clay earrings. I used yellow for the center and pink for the petals.

Pinch off enough yellow clay for 2 flower centers, and enough pink clay to make 12 petals (which will be circles the same size as the flower center).

Knead and roll the clay between the palms of both of your hands and form a ball shape

Step 2

Roll the clay balls back and forth on a flat surface to make a cylinder-like shape.

Take the petal clay ball and roll it into a long rope. The rope shape should be even in thickness for the entire length.

Use a clay cutter or an indent tool to mark 2 indentations on a petal ball. The indents should resemble a “V” shape but be a little wider. The indentations should join at one end and spread out to opposite directions towards the other end.

Repeat this process for all of the petal ball shapes.

Step 7

Press one petal ball to the side of a flower center ball.

Then continue with another petal ball, pressing it to the petal ball beside it and to the flower center.

Continue this process until you have pressed 6 flower petal balls to the flower center ball. Adjust and squeeze together as needed to fit around the flower center.

Repeat the process for the other flower earring.

Step 8

Allow the clay flower to dry slightly to firm up, but not completely.

Use a needle or other thin, sharp object to make a small hole on the edge of a petal.

Attach the jump ring through the hole.

Step 9

Add the earring hook to the jump ring, then close the jump ring to secure.

Repeat the process for the second earring.

Allow to dry completely.
