This seems like the type of warning my mom would give. She also forbid me wearing dangle earrings until I left home. She told me that hoops were slutty and that I would catch them on something and rip my ears. She was always full of caution. So now I wear dangle earrings and hoops every chance I get. In fact my jewelry designs have almost nothing but. Funny thing about Moms.
I love these earrings. The perfect blend of nature and modern.
