The Layered Ear

The Layered Ear

Yesterday the sun came out and I spent some time in my tiny Brooklyn backyard, surveying the space after winter's visit. I have mentioned my tiny backyard for a reason; tiny places require thoughtful decisions about what stays and what goes. You have to make choices: weeds, out, rosebush, in. Picnic table or firepit? What does this have to do with ears? Small spaces on our bodies require curation too!

What is the significance of curation in our appearance?

Curation in fashion is not just about picking random pieces and throwing them together. It involves a thoughtful selection process that considers color, shape, texture, and overall aesthetic. By curating your earrings, you can elevate your style and make a statement that is uniquely yours.

What role does personal style play in curation?

Your personal style is like a signature that sets you apart from the crowd. When curating earrings, especially for multiple piercings, it's essential to stay true to your unique aesthetic while leaving room to explore new ideas. Whether you prefer minimalist and sleek designs or bold and eclectic pieces, your earrings should reflect your personality and enhance your overall style. Sometimes that style will change, as a new hairstyle can or different glasses, same you underneath, but with a new point of view.

How you can start layering your earrings for your own look

Imagine your ear as a blank canvas waiting to be adorned with carefully chosen pieces of jewelry. By selecting earrings that complement each other in terms of design and placement, you can create a harmonious and visually appealing composition. Have fun and try a mix of studs, hoops, or cuffs-no piercing required!  Each earring adds a layer of depth, texture and sophistication to your overall look.

Experiment with different combinations, layering studs with hoops or adding a crawler to the mix. Don't be afraid to play with asymmetry and varying lengths to add visual interest to your layered ear stack. Try mixing metals for some added interest and venture into a new look. I recently added yellow gold tiny hoops to my mix, something I haven't done in years, and I love the change!

So, using curation to select earrings for your multiple piercings allows you to express your style in a sophisticated and personalized way. By carefully layering your earrings, you can create a stunning and unique look that is a true reflection of your individuality.

I hope my backyard benefits from some hard choices I have to make.
