In the diy ear cuff tutorial I posted yesterday, I said I would post pictures of ear cuff displays that are suitable for gifting or selling.
So...here they are:
I made the cuff display above exactly the same as I made the cuff display in the tutorial yesterday.
It's simply different colors and embellished differently.
If you want to make a display like this one, go to my supply blog Secret Solace Supplies for a tutorial on the roses, leaves and vines. I do have a rose tutorial on this blog but I think the one I linked to on my other blog is easier to follow.
I had a bubble gum pink shade of polymer clay that I didn't really like so I mixed it with peal and a darker pink and used it for this display.
I made the 2 roses with the darker pink.
I bought a Dollar Store plastic Halloween necklace that had a skeleton pendant. I cut the skull off the pendant to use on this display. The skull had a large circular back so I cut the back of the skull off. I pressed the skull into the clay, removed it for baking and glued it into the impression once the clay cooled.
I rolled 2 long pieces of black clay and formed them into snakes. I textured the snakes using the spine of the skeleton pendant. I rubbed mica powder on the textured area of the snakes using my finger. I dipped a toothpick in mica powder and pushed it in the clay for the eyes. I used a craft knife to cut a mouth.
I hope I have inspired you to make ear cuff displays :)
Can you make these to sell? Absolutely!
Can you make an exact copy of my designs and sell them? Yep!
