75 years ago most people pierced their ears at home, young girls going so far as to organize "piercing parties" with their friends; 500 years before that, earrings were the mark of nobility. So while the modern age hasn't brought us the rocket cars we were promised in our youth, we can at least be thankful that the new generation isn't getting together on a Friday night to push hot metal through their earlobes--although they might still put on princely airs from time to time.

The earrings in this series are perfect examples of the quirky, playful, and unique. From retro NES iconography to tiny balls of knitting yarn, there is something here that will please everyone, or perhaps act as inspiration from some guilty-pleasure shopping on Etsy.

those one never work - I believe they would need to be custom made to actually fit and stay on your ear...

Brilliant idea!Especially for those who destroyed their ears by experimenting with tunnel earrings(like me)and trying to smartly hide it :-)

Why are these gorgeous earrings hung like this? The designer missed the opportunity to attach the pinwheel through the centre so it spins like the real thing.

It's homemade. You need two beans of coffee, small drill, parts from old earrings and glue. :)

I didn't know there was anything geeky about angels. Seems pretty mainstream.
