made a pair of custom triangle studs. these are cast in solid 14K yellow gold. they were so shiny, bright and had such a great weight to them... i really wanted to keep them for myself. actually, come to think of it, i would be losing money if i didn't make a pair for myself, especially with the price of gold always going up. they have screw on butterfly backs so you won't lose them! i think i would cry solidly for two weeks if i ever lost a chunky solid gold earring. and then i would spend week three trying to find other people to blame for the lost earring. that's how i roll.
