Earrings v1.0 [Image Obese]

Wells, I've been lazy and haven't posted anything I've crafted in awhile. Since it's nearly Christmas now, I've been busy making Christmas presents for most of my friends. I've been in Texas visiting my sister-in-law, brother, and six month old niece and shopping like a madwoman. Since my hometown is small and crappy, I don't have any awesome craft stores like Michael's, Hobby Lobby, or JoAnn's. Soo..... when I was in Texas, I went crazy and bought a butt-ton of craft supplies including earring findings and decided to make earrings for my cousin.

Which leads to me taking pics of (almost) every earring I've ever made since this summer.

Gift made for my cousin from Swarvoski crystals & earrings findings from JoAnn's.

And here are the earrings I've made this past summer till now:

Mario mushroom earrings made from Sculpey clay and hand painted with acrylic paint.

Breakfast jewelry set: Bacon, waffle, & sunny-side up egg! Made from Sculpey clay and hand painted with acrylic paint.

101 Dalmation earrings made from old charms I found in my stash of crap.

Radish earrings based off of Luna Lovegood's radish earrings from Harry Potter V. Made from pearlesque seed beads. Tutorial can be found here.

Pacman earrings made from Sculpey clay and handpainted with acrylic paint. I made them to match my Pacman skirt.

Harry Potter potion earrings made from bottle beads from Hobby Lobby (they were a bitch to find!) and food coloring. Inspired by this Craftster post.

Shuriken earrings made from craft foam and beer can metal. Note to self: Superglueing fingers together is not smart.

Mario skull raft earrings based off the above picture. No, they are not Jack Skellington from Nightmare Before Christmas. I've never watched that movie and no, I'm not emo. Made from Sculpey clay. The skull design is drawn with fabric marker and is on front and back of the earring.

Well, that's it for now! Sorry for the crap load of pics. I didn't bring home my original giant Sculpey radish earrings. I made the beaded ones after the Sculpey ones because they weigh a ton and every time I wore them it was like gauging my ears. :S I plan on making fortune cookie, cheese wedges, and button earrings next!
