heart-shaped cutter.  
2.  To shape a petal, lay the pointy end of the mixing wand down the center, press gently, and pinch the bottom of the petal.  Do this to all the petals. 

3. Form the petals into a clover making sure all of the petals touch firmly in the center. Wet clay will stick to wet clay with no additional adhesive needed. (Tip:  If the clay has begun to dry out, paint a tiny amount of water down the sides of the petal.  Keeping open clay not in use in a ziplock bag with a damp paper towel or baby wipe will help keep it fresh and prevent drying.)

4.  Add glitter to the center of the clover for some sparkle. (Tip:  Apply a small amount of adhesive then sprinkle on glitter.) 

  • 5. Using the sharp end of the mixing wand, poke a hole in the top of one of the petals for the jump ring.  
6.  Repeat steps 1-5 to make second clover. 
7. Let both clovers dry 24 hours, then using jewelry pliers attach the jump rings and then add to earring wires. \
