PB&J Earrings

Happy New Year! I hope everybody had a great holiday season and a wonderful start to 2015.  :)  I made these peanut butter & jelly sandwich earrings back in December as a Christmas gift for some friends.  For some strange reason, after showing my family these earrings, they all started craving them! haha  Whenever I think of pb&j sandwiches, my head immediately thinks of the show PB&J Otter.  Does anyone remember that? Butter was so cute!

The jelly took a little bit of trial and error to get the color and consistency I wanted.  It's a little red and a lot of translucent clay, red and purple chalk pastels, and Fimo Deko Gel.  When unbaked the jelly looked cloudy and much darker than intended but I baked a test sample and it came out semi-translucent like jelly! Sweet.

Excuse me, while I wander off to make myself a pb&j :P
