CLAY CHANDBALI EARRINGS

Hello friends , Welcome back!! Today am posting the tutorial of making clay earrings. Clay earrings are  favourite  and popular particularly among the teens of India. I always wondered how these earrings could be made in many wonderful designs until i saw a tutorial recently on clay jewellery making in the last month's issue of Aval vikatan. So got excited and tried my first ever clay jewellery. 


I used air- dry clay for my project. Here's the picture colage on the making of the earring.





First knead the clay and form two similar  round shapes.Then flatten them using a rolling pen ( i used a pen for this). Take the lid or cap of some bottle that has a circular base ( i used the glue bottle cap) and press it on the clay. You will get a rounded shape. Now use the same circular base and press once again to get the half moon shape and a tear drop shape. Attach eye pins and pearls .



After its dried draw the design of your choice. For making the design generally carving tools are used but here i used microtip pencils and black ball point pen. The colours of these earrings are inspired from the picture given in everyday earrings challenge.

I used sky blue, dark blue, green, orange, white and silver(hooks) from the picture.





Have a crafty weekend!!
