Super cute! I like the beer can ones especially, they look really nifty and modern. The little...rivet-thingies...at the bottom are just perfect.

Quick question for you, if you don't mind--the metal things you used to attach your ribbon (and former molino) earrings to your findings, what are those called? I've been looking for them everywhere, and my ability to find them isn't helped by my utter inability to tell salespeople what I'm looking for...

Cute earrings!  But what's a molino?  Google showed me pix of windmills and a molino grinder, but nothing that looked like that!

The finding on the ribbon earrings is called a choker clamp, see them at http://shop.rings-things.com/cart/pc/showsearchresults.asp?idSupplier=10&idcategory=1087&customfield=&SearchValues=&priceFrom=&priceUntil=&withstock=&sku=&IDBrand=&keyWord=ribbon&exact=&resultCnt=10&order=&iPageCurrent=1&pageStyle=M

In Hungarian we use the molino for the banner. I thought it is international word. Sorry:)

Thanks for showing me this on my board asking about water bottles. I never even thought of making earrings so I LOVE the idea. Yours came out fantastic.

My favorite are the first earrings--I like them all, but I love seeing recycled materials that don't LOOK like recycled materials. Very neat!
