I work as an air conditioning mechanic, and with my head stuck in operating electrical machines all day I have a mind to switch to non-conductive earrings. I have 6ga or 4mm earrings. I used to have a pair of glass earrings but they eventually broke when I dropped them. Is there any reason I should not use glass stirring rods
to make a new set of glass earrings? I am assuming I can use a torch or buns en burner to bend them and finish the ends.

I buy bottles of strauss organic whipping cream, it comes it little glass bottles and looks like this: pic 1
, pic 2
. As you can see, on the glass bottle there is a flat black imprint with some lettering and a logo. Is there any way to safely remove that imprint? I have something in mind I'd like to reuse my bottles for and I'd prefer them not to have that imprint. Thanks!

I have a few old glass bottles which I've cleaned, de-labeled, and given airtight cork tops. They're attractive bottles, about 750ml each with narrow tops, and I'd like a practical way to show them off ideally in the kitchen. I already used one to infuse olive oil and other to hold my dried dried beans rather than leaving them tied up in the pantry. What else can do with them?

I need help finding a company that takes your existing wine bottle and turns it into a pillar candle by cutting off the top and pouring a candle into it. I believe it was in OR or WA. [more inside]

So, I've been saving all the nice mason jars that Classico pasta sauce comes in for sometime and decided I could do with a nice set of mugs. But I'm unsure of how to best attach handles. [more inside]

The windows in my flat do a lousy job of keeping heat in and cold out. Is there a way to improve the insulating properties of window glass without installing double glazing? Ideally it would be something I could install myself (and if necessary remove when I move out of my rented flat.) Googling turned up various window films, both do-it-yourself
. Any experience with these or similar products? Any other suggestions?
