Polymer Clay Rings & Stud Earrings

Along with last weeks scribble necklaces I made last week, I had the chance to test out an idea that's been toying in my mind for a while, creating polymer clay rings and earring studs.

So once I purchased some ring bases and ear stud components I had a play around with some sizes to see what would work.

I decided on two sizes for the rings a small 20mm size and a larger 25mm focal decoration for the bead.  I choose to keep it simple to start and used my rose canes to decorate and shape the focal bead

I also had to play about with the earring stud size too and decided on a 18mm focal bead.  I had to test the fixings for both the rngs and the studs but I am delighted with the results for both.

 I can't wait to try out some more designs and it will be a great use for all those canes I have stashed away.
