How I Wear It - the Spear Huggies with Tiny Studs

Sharon Zimmerman

I'll admit it - I got into jewelry-making largely for my own self-interest. I wanted to have beautiful pieces of jewelry to wear and the best way to get something that's exactly what I want is to make it myself. So I started making jewelry. A lot. Obsessively. All the damn time.

Time passed, more jewelry got made and I got more curious about where my metals came from. I got more interested in creating a jewelry line that uses sustainable materials and incorporated more designs and more creative and wild visions. Each year, I make more and more jewelry that I love down to its core. It becomes pretty hard to figure out which pieces to put on each day when I feel like I have an embarrassment of riches. So much to love...so little ear space.

I mean, of COURSE - making more jewelry means that I need to be wearing more jewelry. So a couple of years ago I added two new piercings to my left ear to make room for more studs and earrings.*

I love how tiny studs accent the ear like a sprinkle of stardust. All the more so when those studs are made in rose gold. (14 karat rose gold is my not-so-secret favorite metal to wear). Though if yellow gold or platinum are your jam, by all means go to town and create your own ear party!

Sure, you can wear our spear huggies on their own, without any other earrings and they will still look great alone, but this was far too fun of a look for me to pass up and adding in all of these studs feels like I’ve armored up for the day.

Pictured on my ear from left to right, all of these are shown in rose gold, and available in yellow gold, platinum (except for the spear huggies) or sterling silver:

We’d love to hear from you and see how you arrange your ear party! Feel free to post a comment or reach out to us by email. We’ll post your image to our Instagram feed and tag you too!

How do you like to wear your tiny studs and huggies?

*I had mine pierced by Perry at Rose Gold in the Haight.

Style - the Made in the USA edition

Sharon Zimmerman

Pink and black and Made in the USA

Live your values, wear your values. That’s what I always say.  OK, not really, but that should be my motto, for sure.

A little over 10 years ago, I made a personal pledge to try to shop for products Made in the USA. I felt good about this pledge...until I tried to go shopping at all of my usual haunts. I found a whole lot of Made in China and Made in the Philippines, but not so much with the Made in the USA. Flash forward to 2014 and in many malls and department stores, this is still the same story. I’ve spent some time researching American designers and seeking out makers who are not only committed to creating beautiful clothing, bags and shoes but have also kept their production here. Keep an eye on my blog for more outfits pulled together from American makers in the coming months.

Featuring Karina Dresses - made in Brooklyn, Nanette LePore shoes - made in LA, belt and bag by 49 Square Miles - Made in San Francisco and Wabi Sabi Earrings by me - Sharon Z Jewelry - Made in San Francisco.
