Stud earrings with plastic posts

Hi All,
I’m going somewhere very cold and previous experience tells me I need earrings with plastic posts but I can only find one of my earrings from a previous trip. The front could be shrink plastic or acrylic or polymer clay (anything that doesn’t conduct heat really) but the post needs to be plastic and the scroll needs to be rubber/ plastic. And not to big so they don’t snag on my hat.
Anyone help me out?
Thanks
Sasha

Sara, Did you get sorted as I have some plastic posts? Rachel

No you’re the first. I’m after a couple of pairs of small studs (6mm ish) with probably polymer clay bits on the front. Is that something you could make for me?
Sasha

Eeek not sure, leave it with me, if I can’t I am more than happy to send you the posts and you have someone else make them. I will get back to you by the end of today? Rachel

Sara, you can have the posts if you can find someone to add to them. I have attached a photo of how small they are and the fact they need something rounded on them. Perhaps they are just unsuitable?

Bother meant to say that is a 2p coin and I have the plastic backs too. Sorry for not being able to make them for you. Rachel

Thanks Rachel @Glehcar I have polymer clay and epoxy glue so I can assemble something myself, I thought I’d ask first to see if anyone had some finished ones I could buy. If you aren’t going to use the posts/ backs yourself I’d love to have them, please me know how much you want for them/ P&P costs.
Thanks
Sasha

what type of design/theme are you after ?

If Sally cant sort you out then I will happily just bung them in the post for you. PM me your address :smiley:

I don’t have a particular theme in mind. If you can make your pangolins/ aardvarks that small I’m interested (one of the ones I still have from a previous trip is an blue/pink armadillo) - I do like the more random animals. I don’t want anything with bits that could get tangled in my hat which is why I had been thinking discs of marbled fimo.

hi-
i can’t really make pangolins that small sorry - i think my eyeballs may fall out…!
i’ll have a think of a possible alternative & get back to you.

hi-i don’t think any of my designs could be made that small without have brittle edges etc.
hope u can find what u are after.

Shame, one day I hope to see pangolins in the wild. Polymer clay blobs it is then.
