Doctor Who Sonic Screwdriver Earrings!

 Sonic Screwdriver earrings!
Make a couple varieties, then mix and match as you please!
Make Sonic Screwdriver Earrings out of Polymer Clay!
(similar to these crochet hooks I did last month)
You'll need polymer clay
eye pins, earring hooks and piers.

My clay is from Wholeport Crafts.
http://www.wholeport.com/item/dl1_20-colors-polymer-clay-diy-material.html
They have color variety packs so you can get
all the colors you need for relatively little!
I got 20 colors for about $20 including shipping.
But then you can make earrings for all your friends!

 It's easy and totally GEEK CHIC!
Here's the step by step for the 10th Doctor's sonic.
 
 I used Gray, White, Blue and Black polymer clay.
(you could omit the gray and mix black and white)
 Start with 2 identical tubes of white.

 Cap them with a thin layer of gray.

 Add blue dots to one end, and add some thin snake coils around.

 Roll a piece of black clay thin and cut notches in it.

 Roll that over the front end and rub it smooth.
Add a button switch...and you are done!

 Before baking, run an eye pin through it carefully.

 Then bake in the oven.
Bake at 275* for about 20 minutes for every 1/4" thickness.

For the 11th Doctor's...
 
 We used yellow, green and brown...and some gray & white.

 Similar technique.
Brown tubes, white band on the center.  Gold snakes coiling...

 Add a green double ball on the end,
some gray snakes...and you are good!
Add the eye pin in before baking, same as above.

 After they are baked and cooled,
add a jump ring and an earring hook!
Awesome and ready to wear!
Great for a gift!
