    Tee hee! Do you have a trench coat that you pin your lovely chains inside to flash at potential customers too?

    Like Jayne - I wear new designs , in bed, in the shower etc, I've heard that having a toddler is the best test, if they can hang on it and they will ......

    Very clever, Jayne - testing and advertising in one.

    Like others, I'm a puller and a twister. I did kneel on a pair of earrings the other day and they survived..........but I don't think I'd recommend it.

    People with toddlers quickly learn not to wear dangly earrings if they don't want to have a ripped ear.

    I once found a stud sticking right into the sole of my shoe and amazingly it survived!

    Sometimes I need to 'weartest' more than one piece at a time, so this is when I approach someone who has bought my stuff before and ask them to do it for me. This usually creates some sort of excitement and by the time the month is out I will have several orders for that piece as the result of the weartester's free publicity

    I certainly weartest my jewellery before it goes on sale, but like your weartester idea Jayne and think I shall adopt that one for some 'free advertising'.

    That's not dainty studs, it's dainty feet.
