Let's try to make out the red polymer clayRose earrings. Wearing gloves, knead the plastic with your hands until it becomes soft. Separate a small piece and roll an even sausage 3-5 cm long. From one edge, reduce the thickness of the cylinder, squeezing it with your fingers. As a result, we get a workpiece in the form of a gramophone tube, with a ball on the end.
To make a rosette a thickened edge of the sausageWe divide the knife into 4 equal parts. Now open our bud. We move one quarter away from the center, and flatten it on the forefinger. In the other hand, take a toothpick and begin to form a petal. We press a sharp tip to the core, and the rod itself rolls out the surface of the plastic.
First on one side, then on the other. The rose should have a rounded wavy petal. The same manipulations are done with the remaining 3 parts of the bud. The base, made by own hands, is ready. We take 8 separate balls and mold the petals of different sizes, using the technology described above. Since carnations are worn in pairs, there should be two blanks, and additional petals 16.

To keep them better, attaching, ironing several times with your fingers around the circle at the very base. Look at the flower and if necessary - stretch the plastic again, so that the external resemblance to the rose is the maximum.
While thermoplastic has not been in the oven, craftsCan be altered as many times as necessary. The rose is trimmed with a stem and the flower is ready. Having made the details, bake the billets at a temperature of 100-130 degrees for 3 minutes.
After solidifying to the base of the superglue colorsPaste the carnations. On the petals we pass through varnish with sparkles, if there is none, colorless + gold or silver dust will do. After sprinkling a flower, let it dry, after that we wax unnecessary sparkles.
In addition to these earrings, carnations, from polymer clayYou can make other flowers. Remember: the studs do not go beyond the lobes, the hanging patterns can be of different lengths, the flowers can alternate with leaves and berries.
Recently, great popularityUse informal earrings from polymer clay, the so-called snag and false rastryazhki. Make them with their own hands is also not difficult. Materials and tools are the same as on carnations.
Roll out the clay, forming a cylinder. We divide it into 2 parts: a tail and a muzzle. The first is shorter, the second is longer and we continue to roll out. Tail gradually thin to the edge, from the thickening cut off a few circles. The front part of the dummy is made even in thickness, then one edge is gently flattened with fingers, a toothpick draws eyes and mouth.
Making deceptions with your own hands, as fastenersWe use silicone plugs and metal bases. In the tail part on the center of the toothpick we make a hole into which we insert the plastic part.
From above we cover silicone with the help of cut offCircles, they also make holes, put them on the plug, carefully hide the joints. The same is done with snout snout, but instead of the stub we put the studs.
Dummies are almost ready, it is necessary to correct a littleShape. Doing such earrings with your own hands, you should make the most of your imagination. The tail is lowered slightly downwards, the upper part is smoothly bent, giving the impression that the snake is crawling to the edge of the ear. When everything is ready, we send the earrings-dummy from polymer clay to the oven for 5 minutes.
If desired, eye-beads or pebbles are inserted on the muzzle and a tongue bifurcated is attached. Having made snakes with their own hands, you can open them with a colorless varnish.
