Hungry for some heart concha jewelry that looks good enough to eat? I spent a lot of 2018 making concha earrings, and got so burnt out, I stopped. But I received a healthy amount of requests for a tutorial, so I went for it this week!
The first thing – I wanted to put a spin on the process, so I made hearts! Here’s my video of how I did it!
Supplies for concha jewelry!
Brown and hot pink polymer clay
Mini-heart cookie cutter
Large glass pebble
Pink craft paint
Earring findings, jewelry pliers
Water-based sparkle varnish, paint brush
Water-based high gloss varnish
How to make heart concha jewelry
Pinch off equal amounts of clay. Roll and flatten each one. Cut out the heart shape and place it over the pebble to get a nice shape.
Cut strips from the pink clay and place on the heart so it looks like the topping of a concha. Insert a short eye pin.
Place on a cookie sheet and bake in the oven according to package directions. Remove, let cool. Add a drop of glue to the eye pin.
Coat the top with paint, let dry, then add sparkle varnish, let dry and then add top coat varnish. Let dry and attach earring hooks.
