How to make flower earrings


Tools and materials:

  • Polymer clay
  • Liquid polymer clay

Cut the polymer clay

Create the flower center

First, I started with the center of the flower. I cut two small pieces of red polymer clay and rolled each piece into a ball.

I then used my fingers to flatten the pieces.

Next, I went ahead and rolled the flat circle to create the flower center. 

Cut the clay for the petals

I moved on to work on the petals. I decided to use white clay for the flower petals and I cut 6 small and 6 large chunks of the clay. 

Flatten the circles


To create perfect petals, I made flat circles from the chunks I had cut. 

Model the petals


I then went ahead and modeled all of the petals into the perfect shape. 

Add the petals


Next, I added the petals to the center of the flower. I first added 3 smaller petals and then 3 larger ones on the outside.

I then carefully cut away the stem. 

Mix the liquid polymer clay and mica powder

Add the polka-dots

Finally, it was time to get started on the polka-dots! I took a drop of the liquid polymer clay and mixed it with the mica powder. 

Easy flower earrings


Using a brush with a very thin tip, I began adding the small polka-dots to the flower petals. 

DIY flower earrings


All that was left to do was cure the earring in the oven and glue on the earring backs. The polka-dot technique is definitely one of my favorites when it comes to polymer clay jewelry! I would love to hear what colors you would choose when making these flower earrings? Let me know in the comments!
