Polymer clay earrings ideas & tutorial

Polymer clay earrings can be made using all kinds of jewelry molding techniques. All techniques will be presented on our page with tutorials on sculpting polymer clay jewelry. For example, the stone imitation technique, the minting imitation technique, etc. Here, you will see many ideas and ready-made results of polymer clay earrings, with detailed tutorials on how to sculpt them. But also see the page from our website “Polymer clay jewelry“>> because there are earrings in jewelry sets:

For example, earrings can be in the form of candies or cookies, a particular lesson on sculpting of food is generally presented on our website: “Polymer Clay Ideas”, on the page: polymer clay food. For instance, if they are cute earrings made in the form of strawberries, there also will be a detailed lesson on how to sculpt strawberries on the page of sculpting polymer clay food. If the earrings will be in the form of a flower, or a composition of flowers, then the page with a detailed photo of the lessons on modeling flowers will be on the page: polymer clay flowers.

Earrings are molded mainly from baked polymer clay, it is durable and does not deteriorate from water. If there are exceptions, it will be written directly in the sculpt tutorial.

Earrings made of polymer clay

And on this page there will be lessons on assembly and the features of fixing to accessories, since earrings imply a set – a pair, and you need to sculpt 2 as much as possible identical objects (compositions). Also, there are very nice interesting earrings with animals, definitely, animals are molded a bit different, since it is necessary to consider that we will make earrings from them and fix the accessories.

Exactly on this page, it will be shown in detail precisely the technique of fixing to special accessories (pusets, earring fixture) and the features of molding for this accessories and also the features of molding 2 identical objects. We will show the lessons and principles of making the object lighter, since the polymer clay is quite heavy, sometimes it is possible to make the subject lightweight, for example, to use light hollow beads for the base of earrings. Since the weight of the product in the earrings matters, too heavy earrings may be not very comfortable to wear.

In order to accompany these earrings, you can sculpt a pendant in the form of a Strawberry. Strawberry is sculpted in the same way as it shown in this lesson, but how the Strawberry pendant will look and how to create it, its shown here.
If there are any unclear moments in the process of sculpting polymer clay earrings, here is a detailed video tutorial on polymer clay on sculpting earrings in the form of strawberries. The video shows exactly the same earrings.

Polymer clay earrings: Parrots.

1 Polymer clay earrings: Parrots

An interesting idea on how to paint polymer clay with dry art pastel.

We will use white polymer clay for modeling.  As in most cases, baked polymer clay is used for making jewelry.

2 Polymer clay earrings: Parrots

We will also need a small piece of black polymer clay, earrings wires and other jewelry accessories, a rolling pin, soft dry pastels in four colors: yellow, red, blue and green.

3 Polymer clay earrings: Parrots

 We print out the image of parrots.  We print two copies in a mirror reflection.

Roll out the white polymer clay with a rolling pin.  We attach a sheet with the image of parrots to the clay, use a pen to outline the contours of our parrots.

4 Polymer clay earrings: Parrots

We remove the leaf, draw the contours, and carefully cut out the parrot from the clay along the contour with a scalpel.

5 Polymer clay earrings: Parrots

We also sculpt feathers from white polymer clay. With the help of a dots, we make a small recess for the eye and insert a small round piece of black polymer clay there.

6 Polymer clay earrings: Parrots

Using a sharp blade we rub dry art pastel. We get powder from pastel. Using a brush we tint the parrots with this powder, as shown in the photo and just below in the video in more details.

7 Polymer clay earrings: Parrots

We fix the pin and attach the hook to it. We bake our earrings in the oven, according to the instructions indicated on your polymer clay.

8 Polymer clay earrings: Parrots

The pastel will stick well to the clay during baking. After baking, we cover the earrings with polymer clay varnish very well – this will add gloss and finally fix the pastel on polymer clay.

Earrings with Tangerines. A photo tutorial on sculpting earrings with miniature Tangerines from polymer clay.

In this sculpting tutorial, you will learn how to sculpt miniature tangerines and create beautiful earrings from them. We publish this photo tutorial in the Polymer clay earrings ideas & tutorial section, although tangerines and oranges (they are molded in almost the same way, very similar, only in a more round shape) are fruits and they suit great for the section on modeling food from polymer clay.

Earrings with Tangerines, earrings made of polymer clay

You will need accessories for the earrings, as in our photo – openwork, then the clay will stick on both sides between the openwork elements and we will not need epoxy glue. You need transparent orange polymer clay for making oranges. For the manufacture of jewelry, as well as decor on cups, we use baked polymer clay, as it is very strong and is waterproof. In this tutorial, the craftsman used CERNIT baked polymer clay. We will also need ordinary orange clay and white polymer clay for the peel, for the leaves we use dark green polymer clay.

1. We roll a sausage from transparent orange polymer clay (before baking, transparency is not visible in the clay, it appears after you bake the clay). Cut off 7 identical small pieces – these will be slices of tangerine, make slices and fasten them in a circle, then press them with a stack, as it is shown in the photo.

2. It is necessary to cut 14 identical pieces for earrings at once so that tangerines of the same size would be obtained on both earrings.

3. Roll two identical balls out of ordinary orange polymer clay. Slightly flatten, and roll over them with a stiff brush – these will be not peeled tangerines.

4. We sculpt peeled tangerines, but a little smaller. Bake the peeled tangerines (pre-bake for 5-10 minutes, temperature according to the instructions), let them cool, cover with acrylic white paint, after 5-10 minutes wipe off the excess with a wet wipe. Good acrylic paint is not afraid of baking, which will later be needed for the entire product assembled.

5. Roll out a strip of orange and white polymer clay, put them together, with the orange side on coarse sandpaper. And on the side with white polymer clay, we go through with a brush. We cut out small pieces from this, glue them to the peeled tangerines on FIMO Gel, this will be the skin of tangerines.
