I love getting piercings. I've had over 25, but currently have around the 11 mark. The one I've always struggled with, is cartilage piercings in my ears. I wear a hearing aid, and am a terrible sleeper, and they never seem to heal just right. Plus, my hearing aid rubs on them! As an alternative, ear cuffs have become a really fashionable and viable option. I have 8 ear piercings, and love them, but this is another way to have more without the commitment and hassle of healing them!

The Body Jewellery Shop were kind enough to send me some to try out. They have a huge range of ear cuffs, as well as other body jewellery. I've bought from them several times as they stock everything from plugs for stretched ears, to tongue bars and more. I tried out some of the more simple designs, but they have some gorgeous pieces, like this Spider Web Ear Cuff that I love.
How much fun is that? And you don't have to have any piercings to wear it. Their ear piercing jewellery I tried is made of surgical steel, so is very easy and comfortable to wear.
Aren't they so cute? I feel very elf-like in ear cuffs. They can be worn high on the ear, or lower, and simply slide onto the ear. I wanted to give them a proper test drive, so wore the longest one for the full day at my job. I answer the phone regularly, and I had no trouble at all with it! These might be a 'clip on' style, but there is none of the pinch associated with the old school clip on earrings for lobes. I forgot I was wearing it to be honest!
I think they add a subtle, but really cute extra bit of detail to a look. I felt so adorable! I love the way The Body Jewellery Shop have designed their website, so you can search by the location on the body of the piercing, as well as material, so if you have any allergies you can easily rule out the problem material.
Don't they look sweet?
