Polymer Clay Sculpted Channel Set Hoop Earrings

In one of my recent trips to the local craft store, I came across these neat earring findings with a channel that are used to add beads or rhinestones.  Of course, they make the perfect setting for polymer clay!  This video tutorial will walk you through using these findings to make a pair of sculpted earrings.  Hope you enjoy.
