How Does Doughboy Do It?

This one is easy. It's the same as those beads with the intricate designs on them. You know the flat disk ones that usually come help necklaces.

You make a very large flat one, it doesn't matter if it's very sloppy so you can piece bits of clay together until it's in the shape you want. Then carefully you roll it so the large disc becomes a long tube like thing. Then you cut them (in the case of clay with a razor so you don't stretch or pull any of the clay) and voila, miniature versions of the big one.

Doughboy probably has a machine that does this.

Does this mean I'm hired?

You sure you didn't just cheat and look at the link called "maybe a solution?" right under the puzzle :-)

Oh. That was a link? If you're gonna make the links the same color as the text, you can at least underline them. Or, conversely, if you're gonna not underline links you can at least not make them the same color as the text.
