OK I KNOW these look really simple..but they're NOT!  First, the colors have to be right on, and all of the colors need to be uniform, and the shape has to be symmetric...and these are TINY.  I nearly go buggy-eyed every year making these buggers!  I also wire wrap them because adhesive tends to dry and become brittle when left in a jewelry box for a long time..and nobody's going to wear these all year.  I love these little sweeties!

I like these - they look better than the original ones. Oh, and I like how you ended in a pun.

These are so cute!  They make me hungry.  I guess its good to get ready for Halloween early.  How long did they end up taking to make?

Thank you so much, everybody!

Sweetlysurreal...these required 2 firings in the kiln, plus AA LOT of coldworking (grinding, shaping)  so 2 days for that...then I ground a groove all the way around, and wire wrapped them...so 2+ days.

I have a pair of candy corn earrings I bought ages ago and wear every Halloween to work.  However, these are MUCH cooler!  You did a fantastic job!

Beautiful earrings!
And it looks to me you have great skills, being able to make these so perfect out of glass on such a small scale.

Fabulous! I hadn't thought of using candycorn in jewelry making, but it's the perfect time of year for it! And, if you use the real stuff, it might be fun for "edible jewelry"!

Stay tuned!

Right now, I'm fighting an unbelievable battle here in Michigan with bullying in our public schools, been away for a while, and so I sincerely apologize for not responding to all of your sweet posts. 

When I came back here, I couldn't believe how sweet you all are.  <3

I'm working on some Christmas colored candy corns right now!  I hope they turn out...will post them asap!

Love love and more love to my Craftster friends!  You are all so kind. oxoxoxox
