One of the things that I like to do when in my female roll, and that I need to do to help with my female look, is to wear earrings, but the problem is that I don’t have perforations in my ears, and I don’t want to get them anyway.
Not only I don’t want to have my ears perforated, but also it’ll be too complicated to explain that to family, especially that there is such an atmosphere of traditionalism all around (men don’t use earrings of any kind…period!).
So I went initially with the clamp style that gets hold of the ear by simply clamping the ear lobe. It works fine except by the problems that, at one hand it creates pain in my ear lobe, and at the other they are very prone to fall and be lost.
Because of those problems, I decided to try the type that hangs from you whole ear, so not to press on the lobe, and to give them more resistance to fall, since they are hooked from the top.
Searching pictures in the net I found the general shape those earrings have, and tried to reproduce them with simple wire, but it didn’t work as I wanted, so went on to buy a pair that had skulls and little chains; not what I want to wear, but they had the shape I needed, so I simply cut the skulls with pliers and bent them as I needed.
It was necessary to cut the skulls, file the hook to eliminate the protuberances that could hurt the skin around the ears, and reshape the hook to the shape of my ears, and to get the little loop at the bottom facing in a more appropriate angle, to serve as a “ear lobe perforation”
They now can hang from the whole ear without creating any pain, and being secured enough so not to fall so easily. Then I just hang whatever kind of regular earrings from the little loop at the bottom.
It allows me to wear any design of earrings that uses the typical short hook that goes in the ear lobe perforation, which are also the more common and cheap!
Hope this information can be of use to you.
