i just shipped these out this week.. i just thought it looked really cute and colorful.. so i took a picture of it. i knowww i knowww. im in love with how it looks! the funny part about it is... i can't stand to rip it off? hehe. i had sample packages.. and when its time to take the earrings out.. i slowly removed the staples by unfolding it... i guess its cuz i took time to package it... usually i wouldn't care about ripping it up
1) rice balls! i was experimenting with the finer points of the faces. the one with the HUGE eyes is a mutant, because i kept making them loppysidey, so they kept getting bigger and bigger. the seaweed diapers are actually a dark green. 1/2" tall. 2) ice cream and lollipops. ice cream is 1 1/2" tall (far too big, but it was just a prototype), lollipops are 1" - 1 1/4" tall. 3) swirly heart. mmm, pearly. 1/2" tall. 4) Hershey's Kiss. they're wrapped in real gold/silver/copper leaf, and range from 5/8" to 3/4" tall. 5) fish bones! i know you can't see it, but the eye hole goes all the way through. 1" tall. 6) shroom. more pearly goodness. the photo doesn't do it justice. 1" tall. 7) pegasus! painting with pearly inks is nerve-racking, because it crazy-magnifies every imperfection. this came out quite well, although he's more yellow and less gold irl. the wings gave me rage-seizures, because they either wouldn't match, or i would drop/lose them. it finally worked out. *proud* 1 1/4" tall. 8) dolphin. adorably squishy. 1/2" tall, 3/4" long. 9) big kitty. with sparkly gold eyes. 1 3/8" tall. 10) lil kitty. can be painted to your specifications. 3/4" tall.
the lollipops are $3. small swirly hearts are $4. larger swirly hearts, rice balls, fishbones, and small kitties are $5. ice cream cones, shrooms, and dolphins are $6. big kitties are $8. Kisses are $10 (because that's real gold/silver leaf. real as in real. 24k or something.) the pegasus is n/a, because i'm not making any more of them. did i miss anything?
i can make any of this stuff into jewelry, if you'd like, too. check here for details.
I realized not everybody like to wear dangly earrings so I came up with some studs. They're watermelon slices, oranges, cookies, happy flowers, daisies, and roses. If anybody wants a pair they're $4 +shipping.
