When I was a kid, I would put lizards (yes, live lizards) on my sister's ears.
HOW: Gently squeeze their stomachs (they will open their mouth) and hold their heard near your earlobe. Release pressure and the lizards will close their mouths, latching on!
NOW: Fortunately for my sister, I started learning to make my own earrings out of Polymer Clay! The process is far more meticulous but the outcome is much more aesthetic.
