From the remaining material, we sculpt figures, whoever they want, full flight of creative imagination (we fold them with a spiral, pull out the ends like a star, turn off the pound, etc.). Then determine the top of the product, pierce from the very edge of the hole to then insert the hook.
Next, earrings from polymer clay will be cookedor bake (according to the instructions on the package). When the product dries and cools, attach the hooks. To do this, we take the line, cut off two pieces of 20 cm from it. We put a bead on one piece, fold a fishing line in half with a loop, and a bead in the center. Both ends of the loop pass from the bottom into the hole in the earring, pull out, put on them one more bead, then the polymer ball, then again the bead. In the loop of the hook we pass the ends of the line towards each other, again we unite them and do the whole process in the reverse order. In the last bead at the base of the earring we end the ends of the line to meet each other and fix each with a double knot. In the same way we do everything on the other earring.
