Quick DIY – Geo Earrings


I love working with Polymer clay and Fimo has such an amazing collection of colours I just couldn’t resist. I gathered a bunch of awesome colours from my local art and craft shop and got making!

If you have 10 minutes and a few supplies you can totally make these babies.

You will need
Polymer Clay (I used Fimo, you could also use Sculpey)
Earring backs
Sharp craft knife
E6000 glue

Take a piece of Fimo and mould it in your hands until it’s soft and workable. My first attempt at these guys I broke a piece off the block and started cutting straight into it without softening it up first. I thought, if I just want straight cuts I wouldn’t need to work it. I was wrong. The clay simply crumbled and snapped off in places I wanted smooth sides. Trust me. Working the clay and warming it up is still super important for the success of this project.

Step 2
Using the earring back as a size guide cut a section of clay to work with.

Cut off sections of the clay working from the top down on an angle.

Now cut pieces straight down and working on an inward angle.

Once you’re happy with your shapes bake your pieces in the oven, following the instructions on the pack.

Step 6
Once the geo pieces are our of the oven and they’ve cooled down you can glue the earring posts to the back.

I love these simple little geo pieces. I think they would make awesome pins for my cork board.
Think that will be my next project. 🙂
