Earrings for non pierced ears are available in a range of styles - we have two of options available on our website! Clip on earrings are the most popular choice, where the earring setting clips onto the earlobe and our other option is ear screws. Both of these earring settings has a loop, which gives you the opportunity to get creative and attach your favourite charms or handmade designs.

In this blog post, we focus on our popular range of paua shell charms - these not only appeal to a lot of people but they are also great for older kids as they are fun and colourful, plus it could be the perfect introduction for jewellery making which allows them to get creative. If making with a child, just make sure you are supervising when making these earrings together and when they are wearing them.
