- Polymer clay (colors of your choice)
- Czextuder + LC Disk 1 (extension with 2 semicircles)
- Round cookie cutters (2 sizes)
- Earring hooks
- Round Nose Pliers

Condition polymer clay (colors of your choice). Put the clay into the Czextruder. Use the extension with small holes from LC Disk 1 and extrude the clay.
Take one extrusion and wrap it around the smaller round cookie cutter. Cut off the excess clay and smooth the joint.
Wrap another extrusion (different color) around the first extrusion. Proceed the same way as you did before.
Now you can remove the cookie cutter carefully,
Take the bigger round cookie cutter. Repeat the same procedure but now use only one extrusion.
Make more rings this way and bake them according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Drill hole for the headpin into every ring.
Take two rings and join them with the headpin. Then take round nose pliers and make a loop for hanging.
Add earring hooks and your earrings are ready.
