The Princess and the Pea Earrings

Erika of Forty Winks Jewelry was inspired by the Princess and the Pea for these gorgeous circle in circle earrings.

I was inspired by The Princess and the Pea. A princess is visiting/taking refuge in a castle and kingdom not her own. The hosts are unsure if she is a “real” princess so to test this they place a pea under her many mattresses or feather beds. The next morning she complains of not sleeping well and claimed to have awoken covered in bruises. I chose this story because as a “spoonie” (I have Narcolepsy) I don’t sleep well and everything has to be just perfect for me to have any hope of getting some sleep.

If you read my blog post on Forty Winks last month, than you already know that I am allergic to almost all metal and can only wear gold, sterling silver, and stainless steel (I can’t even hold coins for very long without breaking out). If you didn’t read last months post, well now you also know! 😉
I once again wore these earrings for a day and I did not have any reactions. The earrings are again stainless steel, but they are gold plated, but I did not notice any issue with wearing them.
Another thing I would like to mention is that when I got my ears pierced at Claire’s when I was 10 (I might recommend going to a tattoo parlor or some shop that does piercings instead of Claire’s or similar chain stores), they pierced them horribly and the holes are crooked and angled and it really stops me from wanting to change out my earrings from just small studs. But these still worked out and sat nicely in my ear.

Price: $12.50 USD
Inspiration: The Princess and the Pea
Cap: 33 US / 2 UK
Description: These gold toned stainless steel earrings feature a forward facing hoop with a cabochon suspended inside. The hooks are Fishhook style, and the earrings come with silicone backs. The cabochons are hand painted using 4 indie lacquers and include a variety of finishes such as multichrome, holographic flakies, creme, glitter, and color shifting shimmer. These are individually hand painted and no two will be exactly alike.
Size: The hoop is about 1.5 inches
