Clip-On Earrings, the not so Obvious Way to Wear them

19 Mar

You uncover a great pair of vintage earrings at a bargain price……..wahooooo! The sales clerk pulls them out for you to try on and……..dang, clip-ons! If you’ve never worn a pair you’re only missing out on the crab claw-like pain they cause to the tender lobe of an ear. Who wants that? But wait, clip-ons could clip-on to other pieces and parts beside an ear, right? Right!

Create a pendant on a chain

Clip one, or two, on to a scarf

Dress up a belt

Embellish a pair of shoes

Remove the clip and sew the earring on to a pretty hand-made flower. Clip it in your hair, to a belt, a purse or pin it to your blazer.

So, pull out that pair of your grandmas clip-ons and enjoy them!

    I’m a jeweler and the award for ‘not so obvious place to wear clip on earrings’ went to a lady who emailed and asked if we had any hoop clip on earrings suitable for use on her … *looks down and blushes*

    I’m inclined to endorse your ideas more than hers, Paula!

      Well, I always say, “you never know unless you ask” and, she asked. To each his, or her, own. Thanks for passing my, uh, more mainstream ideas along.

      Thanks a bunch Sara! I hope you try it sometime. There are so many fabulous clip-ons to be had and the best part is that each pair has a story. I love that!
