Ombre Chevron Earring Tutorial

Friday, November 9, 2012

 
Yesterday I showed you how to create a fun Ombre Chevron Necklace. 
Today is all about the matching earrings.

You can do this!  Easy peasy.

Start with polymer clay in four different shades.  Here I used blue, green and white to create different shades of turquoise.

Roll each colour into a small rope of clay.

 
Layer the four rolls together.

 
Cut a 1/4" section of the rolls off on a diagonal.  Repeat this and place the two 1/4" sections together.  Do this for each earring.

 
Using a small rolling pin, roll the colours flat and cut into an arrow shape.  Pierce a hole into the top and bake according to the package directions.  Finally attach a couple of hooks using pliers and jump rings.

 
Voila!

Fun right?!?!

 
Have you been playing with polymer clay?
I would love to hear about it!

  2. I've had a few attempts at polymer clay but never found a design I liked. I like this though, I think I'll try! Thanks!

  3. I really enjoy reading your blog and seeing all the great jewellery you’ve made! Your creations are quick and easy to make, but I wonder how you find the time come up with these AND THEN blog so thoroughly about them with your busy schedule – I envy you! I’m going to try a few of your ideas with my kids on their next school break!
