- Scalpel, blade
- Cookie cutters (round and round triangle)

Condition polymer clay. Put the clay into the Czextruder. Use the extension with small holes from LC Disk 1 or 3 and extrude the clay.
Coil the extrusion to make a spiral.
Cut using a round triangle cookie cutter and remove the excess clay. Make the second earring the same way.
Make a sheet of clay, cut two small circles. Bake all parts according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Make another sheet of clay and texturize it with a crumpled aluminum foil. Cut using the circle cookie cutter. Make a small hole with a needle tool or pin. There you will add the earring post.
Cover the backside of the baked part with liquid clay. Place the textured part, but don’t forget to add an earring post between the baked and unbaked circle.
Proceed similarly with triangles. Bake all parts again.
Sand edges and drill holes for connecting both parts.
Add jump rings and your earrings are ready.
