I've got a question, some of my earrings I've made the ones that are suds, I guess that is what they are called, I'm sure I was suppose to make the clay around them then bake them so they would stay on, but I didn't know that, so what type of glue to use to get the polymer and the metal earring to stay together?

I used super glue, it said it would do clay/metal and what not, but yesterday I noticed that some of the ones I made have come lose off the earring parts, and wondering if there is something stronger I should be using?

If your super glue isn't working, then try using a jewelry glue. If the jewelry glue doesn't work, then you might have to get the kind of glue that works on glass and dries clear (it's a type of glue that takes about a day to cure, but it sticks on tight.) 

Stud earrings are usually glued on since you don't want the clay to (possibly) irritate the skin. :)

I think the glue I saw in the video was called E600 I'm wondering if I can get that at a hard ware store.

I don't understand then to why the super glue I used came off.. I'll have to check my other ones. Thanks

It depends on the brand of superglue, but I've found that superglue can be quite brittle and it does not like to stick to smooth, non-porous surfaces like glass or shiny metal very well. I would definitely recommend the E6000, I've had good results with it personally.

I have found E-6000 at walmart for about 10 for the big tube. I haven't used it yet though seems very good for holding things together

You probably can! :) 

It's likely the metal surface was too smooth for the glue to bond the two together.

I've personally found super glue to work so i dont know what other type of glue that might be good. I found this youtube video about gluing metal findings onto clay which might be helpful: www.youtube.com/watch?v=KrEVvQ…
If not I can post a journal about your question. Let me know :3

ty, I used super glue but on some of them they came off for some reason. I might try to reuse it. someone said epoxy glue.
