okay, another anthro knock off...i just couldn't resist this one because it's so similar to my antler necklace. the photo on the left is my inspiration from anthropologie: crowned stag earrings for $198!! you can find it here . the photo on the right is my cheapo version made out of sculpey.
-2 fish hook earrings
-2 jump rings
-(2) 1 inch pieces of wire
it's really pretty simple, just shape the clay into the general shape of the antler. then gradually start to the taper everything down so it doesn't look so chunky (unless you want it to look that way). bake according to the clay you're using. using your pliers, make a small loop on one end of each piece of wire. insert the straight end of the wire into the end of the antler after you finish sculpting it. attach the antlers to the fish hooks using the jump rings.
i used some gloss white nail polish as a finish on mine but you could make them any color...
and that's it..seriously...you just made a knock off of $200 earrings for probably less than $5!? crazy right? i mean sure the anthro version is a lot more thin/delicate looking than mine and made out of mammoth ivory but still...i'd rather have my $5 version.
