Piercings can be a pain, especially today when it’s fashionable to sport several earrings in each ear. The more earrings you want to flaunt, the more piercings you’ll need. Enter Ear Curls; a single earring giving you the appearance of wearing multiple earrings, through one piercing.
Shirley Searle, owner of Ear Curls, grew up in Vancouver working in her family’s lapidary business, centred around cutting, engraving, and polishing stones and gems. Shirley left her family business entering entrepreneurship, accounting, and computer software design. Her creativity in jewellery never ceased. In addition to earrings, Shirley loves beaded embroidery, dressmaking, and watercolour painting.
Ear Curls are designed specifically for one piercing and are easy to use. A wire travels up the back of your ear to gently keep the earring in place. These individually handcrafted gems are produced with sterling silver and 14 Karat Gold-filled wire featuring an array of materials including crystal, stone, and pearls. Ear Curls offer five different lengths to suit any occasion. For example, size one would offer one gem, while size five would feature five gems. Read more about the sizes and versatility below.
