  • 2 gold eye pins

Project Instructions

    Getting Started:
Please make sure your work area is covered and you are not working on an unprotected surface. We recommend working on the Sculpey® Work 'n Bake Clay Mat, wax paper, metal baking sheet, or disposable foil. Uncured clay may damage unprotected furniture or finished surfaces. Be sure to cover your crafting area appropriately.
Start with clean hands, unwrap and knead clay until soft and smooth, or condition by running clay though a Pasta Machine. We recommend using a designated machine for clay purposes only. When working with multiple colors, clean hands with soap and water or baby wipes (we have found that baby wipes work best) before switching colors. Shape clay, pressing pieces firmly together. Wash hands after use.
Begin by preheating oven to 275 °F (130 °C). After you are done creating; for best results bake clay on an oven-proof surface such metal, aluminum foil, an index card or the Sculpey® Clay Mat at 275°F (130 °C) for 30 minutes per 1/4" (6 mm) thickness according to package directions. Oven safe glass or ceramic surfaces are also acceptable for baking; however please note that the baking times may take longer as the glass or ceramic surfaces take longer to heat up. For best baking results, use an oven thermometer. DO NOT USE MICROWAVE OVEN. DO NOT EXCEED THE ABOVE TEMPERATURE OR RECOMMENDED BAKING TIME.
Thoroughly condition the Yellow Glitter Gold and sheet it out on the second from widest setting. Use the largest circle cutter (2 inch) to cut out a circle of clay. Leave the circle of clay in the cutter and cut out a second circle (you can also stack two layers of clay and cut through them at the same time.) Repeat to make two circles

Use the Super Slicer to remove the top ¼ of each circle.
slice gold premo clay
Repeat the stacking process and cut out two 1 inch circles of clay and cut off the top ¼ of the circle as shown.
form gold clay for earrings
Trim a piece of fringe that is just short of one inch wide. Apply a small amount of Gold Ls and press the fringe firmly into the top middle of the larger circle (leave a small space at the top as shown). Add some more Gold LS to the smaller circle as shown and position it over the fringe, tucking in the edges of the fringe if needed.I chose to use a hand drill to make the hardware holes after baking. If you aren't using a hand drill, use a large needle tool to make two holes in the top of the earring to mount the ear wire. Bake as directed.

add clay piece on top of clay earrings
While the clay is baking, create your ear wires by straightening two 3 inch lengths of wire. Use the needle tool to create a loop in one end of each wire then carefully wrap the wires over the paper towel core. Use the needle tool to add a bend in the straight end of each wire. Use fine sand paper or a wire tool to gently round the straight end of the wire.
add wire to clay earrings
Once the clay has baked and cooled, I drilled my holes in the top of each earring and glued an eye pin in on either side of each earring. Attach your ear wire and you are done!
