I was just too lazy to take separate pictures.



 anyhow... the left pair are made of real gummy bears coated in a few layers of nail polish and strung on dental floss. I couldn't find any wire unfortunately, but sometime later I broke the string so I'm awaiting the purchase of wire before I can wear them again...and I cannibalized another pair of earrings for the ear wires and the beads.

the percentage dice were as simple as convincing my friend in Art seminar (who had a drill) to put holes in the top, add a drop pf epoxy and then put in wires.

The gummy bear thing totally rocks.

Is the nail polish good enough to preserve them and what not so they dont get icky?

Well gummy bears aren't exactly highly perishable and i used like 5 coats of polish. They should last a while and if they do get icky somehow then it doesn't really cost a lot to remake them ^.^
thanks for looking!
