  • Hi from Dundee

    Hi, i'm Nickki - I've ran another website (wont advertise as is non-craft related) and when I gave up smoking a year ago I started making earrings as a hobby to take my mind off my cravings. I was never very good with 'fiddly things' as I considered jewellery making and scrap-booking etc (chubby fingers) but when i'd made a few earrings I was chuffed with them so added them to my website and near fainted when they sold within days. I then started looking at everything as a potential piece of jewellery and now use everything I can from condoms to padlocks lol. From a distraction to smoking cravings I now have a new website with 100's of different designs that earns me extra cash, have a great new hobby, am addicted to craft mags and websites etc...oh and as a plus point I still kept off the cigs. I am a convert lol - I now love crafts!

    Hi Nickki!

    Sounds like you are doing well with your jewellery. One thing that I'd like to know though...how do you make jewellery using a condom???

            Hehe.......just been to look at your website, you have some weird and wonderful things to wear in your ears. Just out of curiosity - is the single handuff earing heavy to wear? also being nosey - have you sold any of your condom earings?

            I'll have to pass your details on to a friend of mine who is well into her clubbing and likes anything thats funky and different.

                lmao - i dont even mention Beeunique in my profile so I am slightly freaked at you knowing about that lol. The condoms are glow in dark earrings and also black and strawberry ones etc and funnily enough the do sell quite wel lol - they suprised me. I tend to look at everyday objects and think hmmm what can i do with that hehehe. The handcuff ones are really light - i got a set of mini cuffs as a joke item and thought these could be a necklace but people started asking for earrings so earrings they mainly are now lol. I am slightly weird (the neon pink hair i have confirms this as if my weird earrings didn't lol). Glad to meet you all and love this forum already
                PS - condoms can also be used as water balloons which of course is their real purpose

                  Good Morning!

                  Hello & Welcome

                  Having four children, I always wondered what condoms were for.....maybe if I'd coldwater-bombed Himself we'd have had fewer kids?

                  Welcome!

                    Hello and welcome from a fellow scot (okay a weggie),

                    So that's what condoms are really meant for - silly me thought they were for something entirely different!!!

                      Love your earrings - they are great! Would need a lot of courage to wear them in Burnley though! Already get funny looks for my dress sense!
                      Oh welcome to the forum by the way!

                          Thank you all
                          Made me feel very welcome
                          Feel like a bit of an imposter though as some of you guys have really reat things on your sites etc that must have taken ages - I only adapt everyday objects so more of a trainee-crafter lol
