Quick and easy jewelry projects are my favorite, and these DIY Clay Star Earrings definitely fit the bill! They are made very much like the DIY Clay Heart Earrings, just with a different shape.
If you are new to working with oven bake clay, be sure to read my Tips and Tricks for Working with Oven-Bake Clay before beginning.
Supplies for DIY Clay Star Earrings:
- Sculpey Souffle Oven Bake Clay
- Work ‘n bake clay mat – This mat is wonderful! I can use it to first roll and cut my shapes, and then I can bake them directly on the mat. This decreases the chances that I will misshapen my design when transferring it to another baking mat.
- Clay roller
- Star shape from the Premo Mini Metal Cutters
- (2) Earring studs – Make sure that the stud is as close as possible to the size of the shape. The stud should not be so small that the clay shape does not have enough to adhere to. It should also not be so large that it shows past the clay.
- E6000 glue
Choose the color for the earrings. I am using a classic yellow color.
Use the star mini cutter to cut (2) star shapes from the clay. Remove the excess clay.
Place the work n’ bake mat on a baking sheet. Follow the instructions from Sculpey on baking.
Per the Sculpey Souffle Website: Bake at 275 °F (130 °C) for 30 minutes per 1/4 in (6 mm) thickness. DO NOT MICROWAVE. Baking should be completed by an adult. DO NOT EXCEED THE ABOVE TEMPERATURE OR RECOMMENDED BAKING TIME.
Since we are baking a shape half the size of 1/4,” the stars should only need approximately 15 minutes. Check them and do not over bake.
Remove the stars from the oven. Allow to cool completely.
Apply E-6000 glue to one of the earring stud surfaces. Press one star clay shape to the glue. Carefully hold the star to the stud for a few minutes until it is secure enough to stay on its own (approximately 2-5 minutes).
Repeat with the other star shape and earring stud.
Allow the glue to cure for 24-72 hours before wearing the earrings.
