Metal & Clay Earrings

Good morning (or whatever time it is for you right now).  I am going to make today's post short and sweet because our craft today is simple and sweet... okay, and because I have to leave for work in 20 minutes.  If you've been following us lately, you know that I am on a jewelry kick.  First I did  a metal stamped necklace, then I made a bracelet from baked clay.  Well today, I used metal AND clay... check it out:


Neat, huh?

All I did was make teeny tiny little hearts from baked clay, bake for about 10 minutes (follow instructions on the packaging), let cool then paint.  I actually painted the bottom white and the top purple just because.

After the paint dried, I simply glued the hearts onto small metal circles and attached them to an earring finding with a jump ring.  I would suggest E-6000 glue.  I was all out and tried hot glue and it is just not sticking.  I'll be reapplying E-6000 after I pick some more up!


What do you think?  It's a pretty easy craft to make and it only takes 20 minutes, start to finish!  Next time, I might make my hearts even more flat and see if that looks any different.  I love having the tiny heart sitting at the bottom corner.  So dainty and pretty.  Let me know what you think, I would love to hear from you!

Happy Crafting,
Kelsie Ann
