Blinging Up Your Life

Sofia Cordoba’s (11) wacky earring collection. Sofia has been collecting for 7 months.

Fashion is a serious business where accessories have the power to transform outfits and lift spirits, one specific accessory being eye-catching earrings. Wacky earrings aren’t just another piece of dangling jewelry, they are a statement, an expression, and even an entire mood. Don’t play sis.

Whether someone is wearing a pair of dentures or oversized popsicles, earrings bring life and fun, and allow people to embrace their inner child. They can transform the mundane into the magical, cracking smiles with their uniqueness. When asked why she enjoys wearing unique earrings, Mt. Eden junior Milania Hernandez emphasized, “I like when I catch people off guard because I feel like it’s more fun.” Hernandez even states that she enjoys being known as the person with crazy earrings because it’s fun for her.

In a world where conformity and business attire is undeniably common, wacky earrings defy the norm and celebrate individuality. Why blend in with a crowd when you can stand out with a pair of glittery unicorn earrings?

Wacky earrings are a fashion statement. Hernandez states, “I just love expressing myself through [earrings].” In times of darkness, crazy earrings are the beacon of light the world needs. According to the Classy Women Collection, earrings genuinely make people look better as they draw attention to their faces and make them appear more symmetrical. If this is true, the real question is: “Why isn’t everybody wearing gummy bears on their ears?”

Along with making people appear more attractive, the jewelry brand Dusoul demonstrates how wearing gold earrings improves your vision, simply because they reduce friction in your eyes and make your eyesight sharper.

According to Statistic Brain, only 83% of people in the United States have their ears pierced, so if you aren’t one of them, now you have something to add to your bucket list. Don’t be afraid to wear these symbols of empowerment, embrace wacky earrings and make them the next normal thing.

If you are looking to purchase some new earrings, Hernandez shares how she makes some of her earrings from materials such as polymer clay, resin, or small thrift finds. Some other convenient places to shop would be small business sites like Etsy and Not Picassso.
