Yes, I think they kind of look like Mentos.
And these I made for my grandma, who I don't think I had made something for yet? Anyway.... I love them. It takes a lot of confidence to make earrings like these because they are so easy to mess up. Because they are large and thin, it's easy to crack them by accident by letting them cool down too fast, and also the symmetry is very tricky. It took 3 tries to get these 2 to come out... which means I'm getting a lot better at controlling heat. ....as for those striking colors... I was just lucky.
