Do You Have Torn, Ripped or Long Ear Holes?
I’m always on the lookout for the latest and greatest beauty enhancers in my Santa Barbara Jewelry World.
My helpful clients lead the charge to willingly test new and cool ideas.
Lori Cooper of Wardrobe Wisdom my stylist, helpfully brought these to my attention and then experimented with them.
Lori’s Cute Comments
She calls them, “anti-ear sagging stickers.” I love it! They call them, “Lobe Wonder Support Patches.” Kinda boring. I’m digging calling them “Wonder Bra for Your Ears,” I’m thinking I’ll capture more readers that way. We shall see.
“You place them behind your ear hole and pierce the post through them. I found they work well with posts, but I could not master getting a hoop or drop earring (with a wire back,) through the stickers.”
“So I’d give them a B-”
My Two Cents As the Problem Solving Jeweler
Posts being straight and of a heavier gauge, will poke through these nicely. Wire backs are more movable and would easily bend while you’re trying to poke them through the plastic.
There is something you might try, which is time consuming. (I know, we do do ridiculous and at times painful things to be beautiful.) Put the sticker on the back of your lobe and put through a post, creating a hole. Then remove the post and put your hoop or wire back through the created hole.
Another Idea, To Make These Babies Work With Wire Backs
Poke the sticker a few times with the push pin, (see picture) to create holes, then put it on the back of your lobe and hopefully you’ll line it up with a pre-made hole and your wire back will sail through.
Santa Barbara Jeweler’s Final Opinion
These are not expensive and they do keep the full weight of your earrings from pulling on your ear lobe piercing.
Possibly they could allow you to wear some earrings that you really love, that without these little wonder bras for your ears, would be staying home and unworn.
Can I say it one more time? “Wonder bras for your ears!” OK, I’m done now.
