Ever imagined getting your ears gauged but didn't want to go through the hassle of having your ears permanently stretched? I haven't, but I thought this would be a pretty awesome project! I must give credit to wear I first saw this over HERE.
I actually have a few friends who have their ears gauged for real, as well as my big brother, so I modeled mine after the ones they have. Simple and black.
It's incredibly easy, too!
You'll need - old (or new) post earrings with long backings, baking clay, and a paint or marker of your choice. (I used marker because my paint supply is low)
You just mold the clay around the earrings carefully. Just wedge that backing in the back peice, it will stay for sure. Then bake them according to the package. When they are cool just paint them and when they are dry, wear them proudly! (and I do mine proudly, people don't look too kindly on such ear accessories, at least no where I've ever been to.)
If this is not your cup of tea (which it's not entirely mine) I'm working on a few more "girlier" projects. One thing you can always expect from me is a project in the works!
