Hi all, lately I have been checking out many different handmade polymer clay earring sets after being intrigued by some offerings on Pinterest – this is such a cool little niche market!
There’s no limit to the awesome stuff you can make from polymer clay and jewelry is no exception. I’ve found earrings shaped like different food items, flowers, little critters, Disney characters and much more, both in post and the dangling French hook style.
Depending on your comfort level one type may fit better than another, but one thing for sure these are such ideal gifts that will be a big hit for women and girls, especially teens and tweens who naturally gravitate towards jewelry with a sense of fun and whimsy.
Also, the realism on some of these – amazing! Truly works of art. Wait until you feast your eyes on what I’ve come across. Check out these adorable earrings….great gift ideas! You may find it hard to choose just one.
These Handmade Polymer Clay Food Earrings Look Good Enough to Eat!
(…But please don’t😁😁)
Seriously, I’m drooling over those little slices of cheesecake, mmm! I found these made in ThePolymerCornerShop on Etsy. She’s got everything from fudge cake to chocolate pretzels in mini clay form, so if you’ve got a sweet tooth, you’ll love what’s in store.
The seller also uses hypoallergenic materials including wire so you can shop with confidence.
Have you seen these little veggie clay handmade dangles by Kat’s Magic Clay? – I love those dangly chili peppers…I’m growing them in my backyard so these were the first that grabbed my attention out of all her cute creations. They would look great wearing them to an event like Cinco de Mayo, etc. anything for an ensemble where you’d want to get into a party mood for sure.
And the carrots are cute, too! These would make great gifts for gardeners for sure.
This artisan has a whole array of different food miniature earrings…everything from fried eggs to donuts, and is a star seller with high ratings so I’d defientley check out all her other listings, if you get the chance.
Post Style Clay Earrings in Animal Shapes
Bring a little of the wild side into your wardrobe with these animal-inspired earrings with 3D design. These cute little clay critters kind of look like they’re biting your earlobes; can’t tell if that one on the left is an alligator or a dinosaur (either way they’re adorable!) all of these are in the post style with the back clasp.
I love the black kitty..don’t know if these are made for Halloween or any time 🙂 But when you put them on it will look like the little guys are trying to climb out of your earlobe…You’ll definitley get a little attention for sure.
Bohemian Geometric Shape Dangle Earring Set
As a long time observer, one thing I can tell you that’s trendy and is still going strong- is simple abstract shapes – and the U-shape and rainbow as well, is really hot right now. Not only is the shape popular, it’s commonly downloaded and used as a template. Simple shapes never lose their appeal – they will look great with casual and semi-dressy apparel.
The pair on the left mimics the terrazzo look – this is an old Italian style of architectural or sculptural design that involves the addition of colorful stone chips against a contrasting background. I think it looks very classy – not to mention sophisticated too. Both have the post style on the back with secure clasps.
Wow, what did you think of these handcrafted beauties? I wear earrings but on a blue moon, but I’m tempted to start again after seeing some of these!
Yep, I Made My Own…
Here is a pair I made on my own not too long ago inspired by the boho-style above. Looking back, that was a bright color scheme – I would choose more conservative colors now.
But they were surprisingly easy to put together – all it took as far as parts go, were a couple of French hooks and two wire pins. I prefer those over the post/stud type comfort-wise. I added a couple of beads I’d made in matching colors and used wire pliers to attach the pieces together.
Which of these earrings did YOU like the most? Let’s hear form you.
