Press extrusions together.
Cut it into smaller pieces.
Make a thin sheet of clay. Place the extrusions and press all parts together.
Cut using a round cookie cutter. Remove the excess clay. Make both earrings the same way. Bake all parts according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Make another sheet of clay and texturize it. I used a crumpled aluminum foil. Cut using the same 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.
Bake it again. Sand edges and your earrings are ready.
You can make earrings with different patterns.
