A few days ago I posted about FENTON on my Jewelry Designer Spotlight, in case you missed it you can read about it here, and if you like me fell in love with all the amazing jewels from Dana Lorenz, then you're gonna like this DIY version of her raleigh earrings.
-Sculpey (Oven Clay) in gray or in white and light pink.
-Nail Polishes in Light Pink and a translucent glittery one (to paint in case you're using the gray sculpey)
-Several Small Rhinestones shapes
-6 Jump Rings
-Strong Glue, or bead glue.
You could fin all the supplies at Michael's.
For this DIY you'll need to remember those clay skills you've gotten when you played with play-doh or clay as a kid, you'll be making some basic shapes, not much to worry about.
Start by making two shapes like these with your sculpey, use a knife to cut the shape even. You have to make a pair of each shape. Make two holes on each one, so you can add the jump rings there.
When you have the shapes in the size you want, take them to the oven at 275 Farenheit, for 15 minutes on a cookie sheet. Let them cold.
Apply the translucent or pearlized nail polish to the first shape, and a light pink color for the small triangle, apply as many coats as you need to achieve the color you want.
I used the translucent nail polish because I want to achieve a clear color, if you notice on the Fenton earrings, the big shape is clear, but it looks like golden on mine because of the shade I used, anyway I liked the result.
Arrange the rhinestones in any way you like to get the Fenton look, use bead glue to adhere them to the earring. Use a jump ring on the top and add the earring post.
Add two jump rings to the triangle and use your pliers to add them to the big shape.
Here is the final look!
