Summary

In a failed attempt to create a copy of a famous Danish building brick, I decided to give it a twist - and voila! A fun set of earrings!
(Or you could say "Screw it!" - so I did)
Update: Added better support for the knobs and fixed a possibly broken STL file.

Instructions

Print at fine resolution, use a sharp object to clean it up. I have printed it with a Replicator 2 at 0.1 mm resolution, 100% infill and 1 shell. Each ear ring took about 45 minutes to print.

I can't seem to get the three tubes on the inside printed without significant distortion. Any advice?

Simple twist turned something common and dumb into something GREAT. Really cool idea. I love these.

SUPER! i like it.

why is this featured? Lego brick, twisted with a hook on it, how is this innovative?

This was featured because some people (including me) think it's awesome. To your second question, it is innovative because OP turned a lego into earings with some flare.

course it's just a funny... twist ;)

What is the point of making a twisted Lego...

Will they fit together?

It is an earing, you wear it.

Just because she can?
What is the point of your comment...
Will if fit within this discussion?

I made those and people thought they were AWESOME!!!!!

Like a regular LEGO wasn't painful enough to step on. ;)

Thanks for making my day :))

To make a pair, does it make sense to print one normal, and one mirrored?

Absolutely! I have chosen not mirror to so far to show a little more of the reverse side of the brick.
