These are the first two things I have ever made from polymer clay. I am just excited that they came out well, and even though I posted them already in the swap gallery, I wanted to share them here too for any suggestions and comments.

I am not obsessed with Perty Thangs, I am disciplined...

I have alot to share, all you gotta do is ask.

 
Crochet, x-stitch, Ribbon embroidery, plastic canvas, beadwork, polymer clay, wire work, and now TATTING!!  Please help me learn to knit, then I might be complete.

yeah they are solid.  They are pretty small. I don't think too heavy for the ears. The radish is white in the middle with red rolled around it.

I am working on some other earrings now. They are so easy to make tis way!

Very nice! ...and it sounds like you're well on your way to clay addiction too  . . .mwa-ha-ha  Cheesy

I like the styling you gave to the flying snitches... nicely done.
(I would be a little worried about the extending parts of the wings breaking off though if you were using Sculpey III, or maybe even FimoSoft, instead of a stronger brand of polymer clay).
Like the way you did the background too ...will definitely have to remember that idea.


Earrings are such a great way to start with polymer clay... almost every single technique and patttern in the polymer repertoire can be used to make them, but because they're so small they "cost" almost no clay (or other materials if used), it takes very little time to mix colors, and it's not a big deal if they don't work out exactly the way you want. 

(Christmas ornaments work the same way for trying techniques, etc., but they'll usually involve more clay.  Well, that is unless you're making ornaments for small trees or miniature trees, which can be a lot of fun btw; themed trees are fun too and are fairly quick to do using small artificial trees... in fact you could make a Harry Potter themed small tree, then hang these earrings on it  Grin.
.... In fact, a Small Ornament   Swap sounds like a fun idea! Participants could decide on a size --say 6-8" trees, or one foot trees-- then send each other a bunch of items on hooks, including polymer ones, for the tree in whatever theme they wanted; if small enough some of them could be hung with earring hooks instead of xmas ones and work as earrings later.)
