They are really cute!

 I have a suggestion though if you want to sell them as earrings.  

They'd be pretty big for some people, especially those whose lobes don't stick out very much from their necks (raising hand here Cheesy), so you might want to try and make the figures smaller, or at least thinner so they'd hang flatter to the head (sort of like cutting these in half legnthwise and using just the front half).  

Another thing might be weight.  If you want to make them lighter in weight (particularly if you don't make them flatter), you might want to make the body over an lightweight armature of some kind... like a scrunched-up aluminum foil ball or Creative Paperclay (totally dry), etc.

Have fun!
