soooooo I have the materials so why not make em?? After being inspired from some works I have seen online I decided to make my own since I have the budget of a single mom Smiley So here you go.. made completely out of polymer clay...


wore these babys lastnight on my date.. they remind me of the nightmare before christmas hill.

Octopus ones, my personal fave:

How do your ears do with them? My worry with clay for my gauges has always been that if I seal it, it won't breathe and if I don't seal it, it's less sanitary and really rough (I made some small plugs as test pieces once).

Note for partners: I have gauged ears, so classic earrings don't really work for me. Smiley

Out of curiosity do you just "wing" it so to speak? Cause I've tried this before and I couldn't get it the right size... Sad How do you get it to fit correctly?

I always use a current pair of plugs to match with, OR, they make cards (like the ones for knitting needles) you can use to size things. Also, I imagine, a pair of those jeweler's measuring tong thingies that show mm size of stuff. >.>

those are gorgeous! definitely be sure to seal them, as it's dangerous for your skin if you don't.

 I actually plan on making them in more colors! I am so excited about this! I have been scoping out dunnygun.com for some earrings but they are just to dammed expensive so i am pretty thrilled that I can make my own.
