Polymer Clay Earrings

Here are two sets of earrings that I made out of polymer clay. The wine/orange colored ones don't have earring findings attached yet. I'm thinking about giving them a nice coating of gloss varnish. The polymer clay used for both pairs was originally a pearlescent white which I painted with acrylics after baking. I sculpted/molded the clay by hand using a star-shaped cookie-cutter, a large flower shaped bead (this is what made the floral imprint), and a pencil eraser to squash the points of the star down. These were a lot of fun to make and I recently bought some metallic mica powders which I'm going to try out on the next set.
