You can buy sculpey and make the beads of the earring out of that. I bought blue hemp for the dangling part and I made a hook to put around an earring.

Which staff do you want to make? I doubt you can finish both in two weeks unless you work your butt off....=O

Coat hanger tubes work well for the earring if you want it to be light. They're frustrating to paint, but otherwise good. And you can make the tassel by making a loop of embroidery around your fingers, tying a knot on a the top, slide it on a pencil, cut the ends, apply superglue to the portion on the pencil, and running scissors over it.

As for staffs, these two are probably the easiest

If you can get your hands on a drill press with the appropriate attachment, nothing beats a wooden dowel for long tube on yuna's earring. Especially if you want it to be light weight. And polymer clay works great to make the rest of the beads. The tassel at the bottom is a snap to make with embroidery floss.

(The thing at the end of the ribbon is a sleigh bell.) If I wasn't sorely lacking a handsaw for my stupid too-long pole, I'd have been finished with it in three or four days.

I paper-mached the long bead in her earring, but the coat-hanger tube option is all right too.

My Yuna staff was.... phenomanally hard to make. And it weighs about 10 pounds. >.<

My grandfather helped me do it, because he's just so damned cool.

It took two days STRAIGHT of work.

Okies, here's what I did. I bought 1 6*'' wooden dowel. A can of blue spray paint. A can of sparkly gold spray paint. A can of gold craft paint. A bottle of silver craft paint.

This staff was absolute hell to make. If you need anymore details PM Me. I shall be glad to help. <3

Linky: Yuna's phenomanal staff. <3

I saw one on ebay a while back. Just try googling 'buy yuna earring'. No guarantees for accuracy (of the earring) I mean though.

I made a nirvana staff (in the otakon page of my gallery). It wasnt hard, just time consuming. All in all, it turned out really nicely. I carved it from a block of wood and then woodburned in the details. But if you want something easy....you could prob just go to the home improvement or decorating store and could buy a rod that you hang curtains on. A lot of them have really pretty ball shapes on the end with a nice handle. All you would need to do is paint it if you want...or not! Its a good solution if you want something quick and easy.
