    I have always been interested in jewelry from buying and making. And I want your feedback on a gold paci with Diamonds set in them. But have a way to put the Silicon end on it so it would actually be able to be used. I feel making it would be straight forward. Even gold plating it please let me know what you think

    It would really pretty. I don't use pacis myself but I think it would be super cute. Maybe with a pastel pink or purple bow wrapped around it too. ^^

    If you don't want to do it yourself you can find something similar to what you're looking for on etsy... this one for example.

    If I were to make one though I'd start off with something like a metallic gold spray paint. Preferably one that bonds well to plastics.

    I might try that first, but I am trying to make it out of stainless steel and plate it in gold. My friend works at a machining shop and would help me out. And setting diamonds into plastic is very very difficult

    it's pretty, but is it functional? i use mine every night. and i chew sometimes, too. so it would hate to have to throw it away or something.

    I would have it to be able to take the replacement ends. So when one gets a hole you are able to swap it out for a new one

    I would look into using titanium instead of stainless steel.

    This will reduce overall weight and give it added strength just in case the unthinkable happens and it is dropped.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Good luck with your project.


    Most of my deepest darkest secrets are a result of what I would do for a Klondike bar.
