01 | preheat oven to 275°. cut your clay into small squares or circles and hold up to your cufflinks to make sure they’re a little bigger than the cufflink surface to make sure you can trim down.

02 | keep your clay cold, so try not to condition it or rub your hands on it too much. as long as it’s cold – you can use your xacto blade to make small slices all around in every direction to create an organic geo shape.

03 | bake for about 10 – 15 minutes and let cool. once cooled, glue onto your cufflinks and let dry for a few hours!

    Just wanted to say that these work good as earrings too! Also–I discovered that putting the balls in the freezer for a few min before you start cutting them really helps!
