Earrings are my favorite piece of jewelry to create! I love color coordinating them with different outfits. It’s the perfect way to add a splash of color and pizzazz to your style. My Etsy Shop is full of unique Wearable Art jewelry. I hope you enjoy making these earrings, add your own spin on them, try them in sparkly gold or silver! Happy crafting!

1 package Copper Premo clay
1/2" circle cutter & Mini Flower cutter
