I really liked the way some gauged earrings look, but I'm too chicken to stretch out my ears, so I decided to make some fake ones out of polymer clay. 

Without further ado, here's my fake gauged octopus earrings! Grin

THESE ARE AWESOME! This rocks! If only I had any skill with poly clay I would make some. As for the ear stretching, I did it, they never fully shrank back and now it's a bit of a pain to wear heavy studs because they look weird now. So don't bother if you can make awesomeness like this.

These are sweet!  I was hoping you would have an etsy shop full of these for myself and my best friend who LOVES all things octopus.  Really cool idea.

Thanks!  Cheesy These were really easy to make.  You should try it.  Sorry to hear about your earlobes.  That's what I was afraid of.  Too bad our ears are not make of rubber bands.  Sad

Thank you!  Cheesy  If only I didn't have to study, I would spend all of my time crafting!!  One day (far, far from now) I'll save up enough items to finally have a small booth.  Haha.  Grin
