Lane & I have begun to make and sell the earrings that I have been making for her for years. These are flashy, dangly earrings made from components of fishing lures. (Everytime I would come home from the bait and tackle store with a bag of newly purchased lures she would say "fishing lures are designed to catch the fisherman and not necessarily the fish.") And knowing how she loved flashy, dangly earrings, I began to make her earrings from the fishing lures. She loved them, and her friends and co-workers oohed and aahed, so we decided to make them available. Below are some photos of the first prototypes which will soon be in local gift shops, (and maybe bait and tackle stores so that you guys can take the misses something pretty.

The price range on these unique earrings will be between $11 and $15. If you would be interested in purchasing any of these, PM and we will arrange to get them to you. PFF members will get a $3 per set discount.

Those are very cool! I just have to decide whichones I want, and in a pinch if I need to work something flashy I can just use my earings! I bought my daughter some earings with feathers, but I told her not to wear them during ling season or someone might need to use one!

I ran across a jewlery manufacturing operation in Panama City Beach a few years ago. It employed about 15 people, in a very relaxed atmosphere. They were making costume jewlery. The owners, and all employess appeared to be having a party. Music and food were abundant, however, they were working.

They supplied most of the shops along front beach road, and at that time, were working 12 hour days, getting ready for spring break. Each person got paid on production, not hourly. I was most impressed with the owner, and she was a very happy person.

I think you guys may have stumbled onto something here.

How big can you think?
