Have you ever wanted to make your own earrings and necklaces? We can show you how easy it is to create beautiful DIY jewelry. If you haven’t seen our jewelry projects before, here are a few of our favorites. Today we’ll show you how to make these crescent hoop earrings using polymer clay. Polymer clay is perfect for DIY jewelry because it’s malleable and therefore really easy to shape. It’s also inexpensive and easy to find.

All you need for these polymer clay earrings are a few tools and materials. If you want to start making more DIY jewelry, wire cutters and pliers will become your two best friends.
