I would buy them (in Budweiser) for about $5-$6 a pair if the construction is good. Do you do anything to the backs of the caps to keep them from scratching your skin?? Those cap edges can be pretty sharp!

i had a pair of coors earings and they never touched my face. i tighten the closure of the earing so they can dangle, but not too much.

I made some like that, and they sold well for $3. I keep the price low cause my dad and mom are already on my case for charging more than $0.50 a pair. Maybe I should just ignore them. If people will pay $10 for a pair of earrings that cost almost nothing, well then so be it.....

That's what I said!!  I mean, the caps cost maybe $0.50 and the materials cost at the most $0.15.  That's a bunch o' profit!!  Let's hope they never come on here and find out all our secrets!!!   Grin
