DIY | Marble Cube Eardrops

Marble seems to be the trend around the creative Internet right now, and it’s a trend I do like to follow! Like the copper trend a few months ago (is it still running), marble is ubiquitous, and there are so many ways to style and craft with it. Marble phone or tablet cover? Done! Marble diary? Hell yeah! You can marble anything from mugs to paper to candles to fabric (or pumpkins), and the effect is so beautiful. Just browse around Pinterest and you’ll find at least a hundred different tutorials dealing with this technique.

Marble Jewellery

I think I have said and written at least a million times that I’m a huge fan of jewellery. It may be simple, delicate, dainty or it may be bright, loud and definitely a statement. Original. If I could, I would just design, make and sell jewellery. So it’s not far-fetched for me to think about jewellery first when I think about marble as material and as a stone. It works so well with gold in my opinion, so I thought about using my marbling skills for just another jewellery project:

The Tutorial

You need:

  • Polymer clay in white and black
  • Long single or double strand earrings (got mine at H&M)
  • Super glue
  • Sharp knife

marble-1

Let’s start with the marbling process: Take a portion of black and white polymer clay each and roll them both into a strand. Bring both strands together at one end and twist them until you have one. Roll that one out, fold it in half and twist the ends again. Repeat until you like the pattern.

Form to balls out of your marble material. With your sharp knife, carefully cut the ball into a cube. Repeat with the other ball. Push the end of one of your earrings into the cube, then into the other one. Bake the polymer clay according to the package.

When the polymer clay is hard you can correct the edges of your little cubes with the knife. Now place a drop of super glue on the end of your earring, then push it into the hole in the cube. Repeat this with the other earring and the other cube. Let dry.

That’s easy! I like how simple these eardrops are and how wonderfully they can be combined with most colours and styles. And they fit so great to my short hear! I always had this problem of my earrings disappearing behind my hair when it was longer. Now that it’s shorter I can finally wear my statement earrings again! So what do you think about the eardrops? Do you like them? Hope you are inspired!

    ‘mornin! Lovely DIY, I like these as they are and I am inspired. I am a gamer, and therefore a fan of dice. See where this idea is going? And gaming dice aren’t always cube shaped. Yup, I’m loving where this idea is going. Thank you so much for sharing & inspiring!
