New batch of earrings

I made a new batch of earrings for myself, using silver and light blue colors, to match the aquamarine earstud I’m wearing for my recent second piercing in my earlobe.

I’m pretty proud of these, I thought up the design myself.  I found some terra-cotta colored polymer clay, and had the flower beads already from another project.  I made wire stems and inserted them into the clay, baked them and glued magnets on the back.  I made 80 of them for my kids’ school’s Teacher Appreciation Week.  The magnets are about two inches tall.  I enjoyed making them, and plan on making a lot more.

Teacher Appreciation Week – earrings

Posted in Uncategorized on May 13, 2015 by lizcreates

I’ve been wanting to do this for years, and I finally had the time to donate gifts for Teacher Appreciation Week at my kids’ school.  I signed up for 80 small gifts, so I made 60 earrings and 20 keychains.  I used up a lot of beads I’m not that fond of, and just used base wire earring findings.  Here’s a picture of 39 of them, most of the others are duplicate designs.  I added small “Thank you” tags to the envelopes.
