So...after living 32 years without earrings, I decided I would like my ears pierced! :-) Now that the studs are out, I am looking for cute earrings. For those who have their ears pierced, where are your favorite places to get earrings? I have looked at a few Etsy shops, in stores, etc. do you store your earrings?

Do tell!

Oh, fun! I was 19 when my best friend and I took the plunge, and I'm still glad I did. :) I store mine in a drawer of my jewelry box, but there are some cute ideas online. Someone put netting in a pretty frame and hung it on the wall, and she puts her earrings in that.

How fun!

Where I get earrings depends on the type I want. I wear plain silver hoops most days, and those I just buy from Walmart. Their Hot Silver line is sterling (I can only wear real sterling or gold) and they have a HUGE variety in sizes of plain hoops.

You probably already guessed that anything beaded I make myself. :O) DH does not like long, dangly stuff so what I make stays pretty small.

Storage - I've been looking for a better option. Right now, they're in a tray in my grandmother's old jewelry box. Silver earrings in one compartment, gold in another, and anything beaded or dangly in another compartment.

There were some cute frames on Etsy like HopiQ mentioned. I've been wanting to make one but just haven't gotten around to doing so yet!

Have fun earring shopping!

FUN, Tammy!! Congratulations!!!

My ears are sensitive and I can't wear just any earrings. (Which is SAD because there are some CUTE earrings out there!!!!). I usually wear simple pearls.

I know you will enjoy having them pierced!!

I got frustrated with how I stored earings. Usually I'm in a hurry, and if I have to dig for a pair, then I usually will go without. So one Christmas I was looking at a tray of chocolates, and noticed that the plastic tray in the chocolate box would work well for storing them. In our last house, the tray fit perfectly in my bathroom drawer. This way I can see all of them at one time.

I'd recommend that you watch the ads, for somewhere like a Macy's, Dillard's, Belks, Kohls. They run very good specials on 14 K gold earrings, or silver ones. I usually wear gold or silver hoops. They are very comfortable and not too heavy. Invest in 1 or 2 good pairs and store them in your jewelry box.

I noticed last night at church that your earrings were really cute. Have you bought any on Etsy? Sue W.

Thanks Sue! I haven't purchased any from Etsy. I have several sellers in mind though. :)
