The days are getting colder and if you’re looking for a new craft to do while you’re cozying up inside, try making clay jewelry!  Last month, I decided to take the plunge and started buying supplies to make clay jewelry – especially those trendy clay earrings.

I’ve seen so many great DIY clay jewelry pieces on Instagram and Pinterest.  And after a friend suggested that I should make some Halloween earrings, I was like “Yup! Gotta do it!”  So between Amazon and the craft store, I’ve started stocking up on polymer clay jewelry making supplies.

That weekend, I made my first set of Halloween earrings and a necklace!  Even my hardly used pasta maker found a new purpose for rolling out clay!

It wasn’t too long after making that first set of clay jewelry that I ended up back at the craft store to buy more supplies. I’m still in the beginning stages of clay crafting, so I’m continuously adding to my clay making supplies.  I don’t want to go overboard yet since I’m still in the learning stages.  So I’m buying things little by little.
