I am happy to present: Earring number 100.
After the long pause that's still pretty good for 337 days of owning a 3D printer.
I don't know if it counts as a few are not uploaded to thingiverse due to copyright issues, but most of them are.
(Still needs to be cleaned and colored, but boy, it worked at the tiny scale! PP3DP rocks my socks! Oh, and stay tuned for earrings made with a printrbot... in 2012 ;-) )

Stay tuned for more!
This one is a tough nut to crack... hahahaha.
At this scale it is difficult to clean, as the mechanic is fused and I had to use pointy tweezers to break/poke it loose.
But if I would reduce the mechanism more, it would fall out even easier. One I printed works without the mechanism falling out, the other needs some glue and a bit of plastic.
Print standing, that's what I had the most success with. Decrease support as far as possible.
If you have a different printer or a different calibration, you may want to change the gaps, distances and thickness of the mechanism, also if you want to print it larger, as the 0.4mm would increase so far that it would surely fall out. The UP tends to print it a little thicker, so for that printer it's fine.
