Etsy love {sensitive ears}

So, while I've been adjusting to my short hair, I've felt compelled to wear cute earrings practically every day. Except when I think a necklace will do, but mostly, it's earrings. I know, I feel almost horrified that I feel like I have to extra-girl-ify myself with this short hair... But I'm also telling myself that I'm just trying to do what I can to elongate my features -- you know, since I have no hair, but I have a very.round face.

A-hem. My problem is that my ears -- well, I've literally had allergic reactions to certain types of earrings up until halfway through college. I mean, you don't want to know how badly my ears would reject earrings that didn't meet the criteria. But then one day, I stubbornly tried another pair of regular $3 earrings you get from a pre-teen store -- and my ears were fine.

And then it's just been a roller coaster since then, where things would go hunky-dorey for a few months, and then *bam!* ear-anger strikes!

Well, I think EA is about to hit again, since I've taken a good 6 month break from any earrings, but have taken up with non-hypoallergenic earrings. Boo. Of course, shopping on etsy is a lot of fun (though some of these, I know my ears would reject: gold-filled? sorry, sounds fancy and safe, but it's soo not). But still -- pretty, no?

My ears are the same way! I didn't know yours were like that!

Anyway, some of these are GORGEOUS (and umm, you know we don't always have the same taste).

Can't wait to see you!

More Treasures!
