This instructable shows how to make the earrings via 3D print, but if you skip ahead a few steps and buy or make some real gauges, you should be able to make faux gauges without the 3D print component. 3D printing seemed good to me because I could make sure both sides were identical!
Printing was done at TechShop!
Step 1: Design Earrings
I also played around with Sculpey clay beforehand to work out what shape I wanted to make- you might want to try it out.
Step 2: Print Them Out
I made it at TechShop!
Step 3: Cut Apart
Step 4: Paint/Seal
Step 5: Glue the Earring Posts On
Step 6: Drill Out a Spot for the Earring Backs
Be extremely careful not to overclamp, as your earring can shatter.
