    My son was killed in a skydiving accident 3 years ago & I want stainless steel curved closing pins made a bit smaller that the real ones to make earrings from.

    The real ones are too heavy.

    How do I go about it?
    Can someone make them for me?

    Looks like an easy thing to make, do you have a specific size you would like? Do you mind if they are hollowed out?

    Sorry for your loss, families are forever!

    Would you like me to try it out? Feel free to check out my shop to see other things I have made to prove I know how to model. :D

    Thank you.
    I don't mind it it's hollowed out because it would make it lighter.
    The real one is 1.5 inches.
    I think 1 inch would be good or 1.25

    WOW! That looks great!
    What size is it?
    Will it be stainless steel?
    What is the price for one?

    I may be interested in a number of them if the price is right, so I can make up several sets of earrings with different beads

    Right now it is 1.2 inches high and can be printed in stainless steal, or any of the materials.

    If you want it smaller let me know!

    It is currently priced at 4.40$ for wsf. 8$ for stainless steel. For a large order I could maybe knock off a dollar or try making them smaller.

    I would like to get one in stainless steel to see how heavy it is & if the size is what I want before I order in quantity.
    Is that possible?
    Where are you located?
    How long would it take to get it?

    Shape ways has a premium order of 25$, If I add one item onto my order of things I am getting already for a different order, then it will be the regular 8$ for the stainless steal.

    I am located in Florida, USA.

    I should have my order done by the end of the week, then shape ways takes 14 days to make and ship, then a few days for me to ship out to you.

    So maybe three weeks. I would need you to send me 8$ via paypal before I can go ahead though. my paypal email is

    If this makes sense and works for you, go ahead and send the paypal.
