I Love My Earrings
I'm a jean & t-shirt girl, don't wear much make-up or jewelry but I must have my earrings. Without them I feel naked. I love long dangling earrings, hoops of all sizes and small studs.
My mother made me wait until I was 16 to get my ears pierced. Then she had my sister do it. Why she thought she was capable I have no idea. Of course it was also free, I'm sure that may have had something to do with it. Not only did I end up with infected holes in my lobes, they were also lop sided, not even close to being even. I always knew my sister hated me. A few years ago I got a second piercing in each ear. My daughter was so embarrassed, she has such a crazy mom. I had it done at the mall. Yes, I paid for it but I did not get any infection this time. Unfortunately, the holes still don't match up. The lady was trying to match it up to the original piercing...and well, that was a lost cause. If I hold my head at just the right angle you don't notice it so much.
I love my long dangly earrings. Either plain silver or wires with fake gemstones entwined into some cool design. I actually hate shopping, except for earrings. I'm a sale & clearance kinda shopper. I find some of the most unique earrings that way. The ones others may not see the true beauty in, those are the ones I want. And gemstones are always nice. A nice pair of sapphire studs. I think I'll put those on my X-mas list.
