I love that design and I'd love to buy one!  I'd pay $15 for one. 
22  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Stretched ears and REAL earrings????I know it's been talked about :( on: March 02, 2006 08:41:39 AM
I was thinking about getting a second hole pierced and doing that, but do you think it would look weird since my holes are so big?

Background: I actually got a second hole above my "normal" sized holes and started stretching those, because I wanted to start stretching, but I wanted to hang onto the option of normal earrings.  I got all the way to a 4g before I realized that I pay wayyy more attention to the stretched holes and tend to just match my studs to whatever I was wearing as plugs, so I started stertching my bottom holes too.  I plan on going to a 0. 

I work at a pretty conservative sports camp every summer, and I had 8g there last year, but you can never tell unless you're looking for them, so I've been worried about going back with my larger holes.  One plan I've come up with is to buy a set of these:
The reviews sound pretty good, and from what I hear, you can poke studs through them, since the construction is basically hollow with the thinner silicone over one end. I wish I could tell you more about them, but I'm waiting to get to that size before I start burning through my ear cash.  Also, as an almost-shameless plug (HA), Bodyartforms is my favorite jewelry store on the entire internet, and I have nothing but good to say about them.

ANYWAY, point is, I've heard of people using silicone plugs as "adapters" for standard earrings, but I haven't tried it myself.

I kind of talked about something like that here:

My boyfriend does this to his jeans.  And they're really nice jeans.  Sigh.

I've had directions to the Valley tacked to my cork board for a year now that some hilarious hostess at Bamboo Club gave me over a year ago, and I still haven't made it down.  I think after commuting from West Chester to UC everyday, the river is just the line for me.  I gotta get home sometime.

So have you hung them up yet?  What was their reaction?

I think it served it's purpose well, because, as he listened to the CD, he scanned the case and told me it felt tlike the songwriters had lived in his head for a few months.  Mission accomplished.

If you used a spool to knit it, could you just do 3 seperate cords and seam them together in the end?

I can't wait to try it!  Do you think it will translate well into a nice stretchy jersey or viscose type material without being too difficult for a pitiful novice sewer like me?

OMG tute.   I love the first skirt, because I don't like short skirts, but I like a nice breeze!

Just for the sake of updates, he loved it, even though it was a day late ("I can see why you were so upset." Ha.) and the horseshoe came loose in transit.  He even asked me if he could show it off to some of his friends.  He was actually at lunch with a friend when he finally got a chance to open the box, and had to excuse himself to the bathroom after he read everything, but he didn't really need to use the bathroom.  He just liked it a lot.  I'm very happy.
