Tentacle Gauge earrings WIP by KTOctopus Tentacle Gauge earrings WIP by KTOctopus
These are a pair of fake gauge earrings! They make it look like the tentacle is going through your ear, but they work like normal earrings.

This pair was a test to try out a new shape for the gauges because I wanted to make an earring that could be worn in more than one way. It was very successful, but I think the new ones will look even better and be fun colors~(but I also like the white!)

You can order a pair like these in any color combination you want! Including glow in the dark for only $20 plus around $3 shipping to anywhere in the US~ Pay pal only~

would I be able to get this in an 8?

I do make real gauges as long as the hole is big enough to work with. I think an 8 is only about 3mm, which might not be enough to work with. I would say it has to be at least a 4.

Can you order some in a different colour? Also are the earrings safe for sensitive ears?

You can! I have made these in different colors recently for some people. The white was a test pair. If you have sensitive ears I can buy surgical steel posts for you, it will just take a little while and cost a little more. :heart:

Yes you can custom order any color combo that you want~ The posts I use are silver plated bronze. Do you think that would work with your ears?

That should work. I'm allergic to nickel. ^^" But I don't think I'm allergic to that.

I will double check to make sure but I'm pretty sure you would be okay then if your just allergic to nickle. Whenever you want to order you can message me what colors you want~ :heart:

It's okay~ You just order with me. Send me a note with what you want and I will make it and send you pictures before you pay. Then I would give you my pay pal email and you would send money through pay pal to me, I would get it along with you r address and ship it out!~ :heart:

This are awesome. Would you make them for real gauged ears? :)

KTOctopus Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2012  Student Artisan Crafter
Yeah, I can do that. As long as you know your measurements and your ears are well healed I can make a real gauge earring for you~ It wouldn't have suckers on the first part to allow it to go through your ear, but the rest that hangs down behind would.

Thanks! I'm really glad you like them and want to order~ We can do it through here if it's easier for you, but I would rather work through private notes since I will be providing my Pay Pal information~ I'm actually all full on custom orders right now, but I will totally take your order, it just might take me 2 weeks to get to it if that's okay. You don't have to pay until I send you a picture of the earrings for your approval~

What is the tentacle made of..?
Reply
:iconktoctopus:
KTOctopus Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2012  Student Artisan Crafter
Polymer clay, so they are very lightweight and the polyurethane I use to glaze them makes them very durable!

These are awesome! It would be cool if you made actual gauges as well, I would like a pair of these but sadly I'm already at a 2G so that's out of the question haha. But still amazing work!

these look so neat! where do you find the earring parts that have the rounder looking thingy? i've been thinkin about trying to make my own dragon earring that sort of wraps around the ear (found a silver one online & couldn't find price & it was........i think 18 or less mm). this might be silly to ask, but do you leave the earring posts in before you bake them?

KTOctopus Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2012  Student Artisan Crafter
I bought these earring parts at a Michaels Arts and Crafts store. They have all kinds and colors to choose from. The posts have a small metal disk at one end, and for the gauges I use an earring end like this [link] but without the plastic disk. I embed both into the clay before baking! It's safe to do, since you bake the clay at such a low temperature and not for very long you're not risking melting the metal posts. Be sure you make a little hole first in the clay before putting the earring backs in. If not the clay will get up into the earring back and keep it from joining with the post. (learned that one the hard way hah) I will do a tutorial soon, but I hope this helps a little! Let me know if you have any more questions.
