>> I’m putting my blasted metal-allergy prone skin issues aside for the moment.  A rash can be cured but the I can’t ignore the itch for an adorned ear.  Especially when sweet Rei Shito took me to her favourite shopping bolt hole in Tokyo, aptly named Peaches and Cream – a veritable Aladdin’s mixed-up cave of sparkly things, both new and old, ensconced in an Aoyama building and open only by appointment .  Their in-house jewellery line specialises in reconfiguring bits of vintage gems and fixtures to create new pieces and their selection of clip-on earrings that would put Pat Butcher’s collection of ear spanglers to shame.  The peeps at Peaches and Cream look to the likes of Marisa Berenson in her sixties/seventies finery, Elizabeth Taylor at her most decadent and Guy Bourdin images for inspiration for their inner sanctum of treasure and trove.  Clipping different ones on and off was a joy in itself.  I finally settled on a pair that thus far haven’t given my skin any gip.  I suspect it’s the worn away nickel of the old metal fixtures and earring backs that hopefully means my ear won’t suddenly explode with pus mid-wear.  I might have to go back to Peaches and Cream for more ear-dazzlers as I’m just a little bit hooked on the whole A/W 14 one-dangly-earring thing (see Celine and Louis Vuitton for further reference), seeing as my heavy mane eclipses the sight of one ear anyway.  Thanks to Rei for the sheeny shiny tip-off!

    I have nickel allergies but I can’t resist big earrings (but can’t necessarily afford to get them in precious metals)…The ones you have here are BEAUTIFUL – certainly worth an itch or two.

    Great earrings , simply irresistible ! I normally would use a clear nail polish on the wire before stick the earrings to my earlobe, this helps a lot from the allergies/ rash!

  11. Hi this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get guidance from someone with
    experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
