By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Before beginning this project please watch this video on how to use Crystal Clay.
  2. Based upon what you learned in the video, mix up a large pea size amount of part A and a large pea size amount of part B white Crystal Clay. You will want equal amounts of part A and part B. After it is mixed, shape it with your fingers so that it is approximately the size of your bezel earring setting. Place the clay into your bezel setting and smooth into place. You want the clay to be just slightly above the top edge of the bezel. If you need to pinch some off, do so, and then smooth out. Try to get as even and flat of a clay surface as possible.
  3. Please look at the photo and place the pink chatons and the white chatons in the formation you see or scatter them at your discretion. Use the magical pick to place the chatons and make sure that their edge rests just slightly below the clay surface to hold them in place.
  4. Let cure overnight.
