single earring anyone?
« on: May 23, 2009, 09:55:09 PM »
Hi all.  I made this little lovely from a single very small (just under an inch) crescent moon watch part.  I only had one of these.  So here's my question:  Do people wear/buy single earrings?

I would probably convert it to a necklace if I was going to wear it. In the past if I lose an earring, I just save it in case it would make a neat bangle or something down the road.

I wear mis matched earrings all the time.

I tend to wear a dangling one in one ear and a 'stud' in the other... just to be off kilter.

I'm going to your site, I can't stand it Kim. I gotta have a piece of yours.
I love that earring base design, as I'm not into the pinks and purples but, red's, topaz, orange and browns. I wish you had a piece that size that had more earth colors and a brass gear to offset the simplicity of it...
I'd wear it with  : the Steampunk Unisex Half Moon Necklace Antique Pocket Watch in your shop, and some funky chainmaille I was experimenting with in Bronze and copper...  If you find another small piece to make a single earring let me know, I smell a custom design request.

I have 3 piercings in my ears. 1 in the right ear and 2 in the left. Intentionally. So frequently, my friend and I buy a pair and split them. So yes, some people do want just 1 earring.

Very NICE Kim, myself, I would have to have a matching pair. I have two holes in each ear, but seldom wear two pairs.

I have talked to men who wear one earring, but I think the pinks would be a turnoff. Maybe as ArmouredHearts suggested, more earthy colors?

Just my honest opinion, for whatever that's worth.

What do you need an axe for...? I thought you'd say hammer...

:) lolololo

I have 3 holes in 1 ear, and 2 in the other, so yes having a single earring could be a good thing - I really like this too!
