Aloha and welcome 🌺
As some of you know, I have a great love for #homemade #crafts. Over the last 24 years my skills have involved from #hawaiian #seed #jewelry to #maui #shell jewelry. Ive been doing #polymerclay now for about 5 years and like to use it as a medium in my jewelry, but also love just doing something totally out of my jewelry normal.
If anyone is interested here is my online store link
Not everything i post is in here but im happy to add anything you see me post in the future
In this #diy i will show the pain staking long but fun process that it takes me to just make one pair of earrings. I also want to let you know that because its a time consuming thing i used a few different ones to show the finished and the making part thats why the colors are different, just so i could try and get the post done a little faster.
To do this post it took me extra time (2 hours plus the time to blog, think the writing of the post took longer then the earrings lol) to stop and take pictures of the steps so i hope that its a hit.🤗 this by far is no fast post and well... here it goes 🌺
This is the end result 🦄 two #beautiful earrings💖.
Making the parts for the body. I did two ovals for the body, a smaller oval for the heads, and 4 sets of legs.
Attaching the parts ill just post the pictures and hope they do most of the talking for me lol. Here are some things you will also need to finish them.
Liquid polymer clay
Some head pins in different lengths and jump rings.
And paint to finish the last touches
Start with the back legs
Add the tails head pin
Add the front legs
Add the head
Make small balls and shape into triangles for the ears
Put them on
Add the eyes or you can paint them on as well, i used crystals.
To make the tail roll out some snakes
Twist them together
Cut to size and add head pins.
Doing the mane i used a clay excruciating tool to make it a little faster, but you can make snakes just like the tail.
Cut into small pieces and add to the neck and head.
Bake as the clay instructions say, i do mine at 325°f for about 20 mins.
When its cooled paint the hooves
Add the tail to the body with the jump rings
And all you have left to do is gloss and add the earring hooks 😘. And there you go, a pair of cute little earrings..
Here some extra pictures of things ive made this week
