This was purchased as a gift. Recipient wasn't a super fan. I thought they looked pretty good, kind of rustic but that has a nice charm to it too. Thank you!

Love these little knot earrings! They are cute, the perfect size, and don't make my ears react. I'm so happy to be able to wear earrings again!

Love all these earrings. They arrived quickly and beautifully packaged. I wanted some hypoallergenic jewelry that would still match the rest of my gold jewelry, so I love that these combine hypoallergenic hooks with more traditional gold accents. The pearl ones are a go-to for me in the office, and the spikes and crystals are great for more casual settings to show a bit of personality, and they are all minimalist enough to coordinate with a wide range of other earrings and necklaces.

I love my hoops and have already gotten so many compliments. I have been sensitive ears and these do not irritate my ears at all. They are very light weight and simple and everything that I wanted. :)

Earrings were much lower quality than expected for the price. In order to put them in they had to be bent and then wouldn’t go back to proper shape.

Looking at the earrings they seemed exactly what I was looking for to wear daily. However, they were so incredibly tiny it was even hard to put them in my ear. I'm sure if they were larger, they certainly would be just stunning. I was most satisfied with the response from Variya regarding the problem. Please do though ensure you are aware of the exact size when ordering.

I do my best to show sizing references with both photos, and accurately describing the size in the listing details. Most of my customers who favor these styles are looking for petite, handmade wares that reflect a dainty but uniquely flair. The size of these allows them to be worn anywhere, from big celebrations to small family events, in the office workspace and out on the town. Please see the size descriptions when purchasing each style I offer, as I aim to please a wide variety of jewelry lovers with unique styles and unique sizing, as well as customization.
Pure Metals for Sensitive Ears
I began crafting jewelry because of a metal allergy that was so severe I was reacting to my own wedding rings! I had been told by my doctor I could never adorn my ears with any metals because of my reactions. I was a bit stubborn and had a hard time accepting that I could create beautiful earrings and not wear them. So I went in search of a new way. As I learned about Titanium and Niobium I was filled with excitement about the fresh possibilities. I couldn't believe that after eight years I could adorn my ears with beautiful jewelry with absolutely no allergic reaction!
There is a growing chorus of people expressing their sensitivity to certain metals. There is also growing research verifying these lived experiences. The medical journal Dermatologica Sinica states "Metals are common allergens that frequently induce contact dermatitis. The prevalence of allergies to individual metals has been reported in many studies. However, people normally have contact with metallic substances in the form of alloys, not pure metals. Such alloys are found in common objects." They also state "Several factors are involved in the potential development of metal-induced allergy. When in close contact with skin for long enough, metals can react with sweat and other body fluids to form a concentration of ions sufficient to initiate an allergic reaction ... patients suspected of having a metal allergy may actually be sensitive to more than one element of a metallic alloy."

My style has an intrinsic vintage-modern flair which influences my designs. I often marry my pure metals with semi-precious stone because the true beauty of both is so very complimentary. I love enabling people to have happy ear lobes as well as being a resource for custom design to allow them to wear beautiful pieces that honestly reflect their own personal style. I use grade 1 pure titanium and pure niobium.
I design and hand-craft all of my pieces from beginning to end: from concept to cutting and polishing the allergy free wire to implementing the design to packing and shipping your order. Thank you for supporting hand-made!
