Despite the recent chatter about statement earrings,
studs will always hold a special place in my heart.
Oddly enough, I began my foray into ear accoutrements completely consumed by dangly, chunky, and flashy pieces ONLY.
Then, as it so graciously tends to do - laziness kicked in.
It quickly became oh-so-much easier (and less detrimentally lobe-lengthening) to throw on a pair of studs as opposed to their more bawdy brethren.
Unwilling to give up the weird, however, I now had to make sure that originality made up for the reduction in overall size.
It has not been difficult.
