**THESE ARE FOR PIERCINGS THAT ARE UP-SIZED TO 12 GAUGE.**
THE EARWIRE IS TOO BIG TO FIT THROUGH AN AVERAGE PIERCING.

The KISS series (Keep It Simple Sue) is all about simple, comfortable, light and casual earrings. They are terrific for fairly new piercings or to 'rest' your piercings after wearing irritating or heavy earrings or just for every day wear. For multiple piercings, they can be mixed and matched – size, texture, colour.

These small natural colour niobium earrings are made from plain round 12 gauge wire (2 mm, .08 inch) that I hammer just a bit on the front. They measure just over 1/2 inch (14mm) in diameter. They are carefully shaped and filed so there are no rough spots. Then they are tumble polished and cleaned so they are a bright platinum colour that will not tarnish. They can be anodized to any of the colours in the colour chart at no extra charge.

The horseshoe shape makes these very easy to insert – no need to twist or distort the wire. They stay in place very nicely. I usually take mine out in the shower, but they're fine for sleeping and all day wear.

If you would like them coloured (free of charge!), just let me know the colour number and name in the message to seller area when you check out. Niobium is notoriously difficult to photograph and your monitor's display may be very different from mine, so please, read the names of the colours in the colour chart. The anodized colours of niobium are rich, saturated and bright.

These are available in my standard 20 gauge wire (for average piercings) here:

These are available in other gauges here:

*Niobium is as hypo-allergenic as pure gold so these earrings can be worn by anyone and everyone. It is about 20% lighter than sterling silver and less than half the weight of gold.
