My name is Rachel, and I am totally obsessed with earrings! I blame it on the fact that I didn’t have my ears pierced until 13, so once they healed and I could finally change my earrings out myself, I wanted nothing more than to have to the MOST FUN earrings possible! I wanted a different pair of earrings for every outfit… I had SO MANY pair! My mom and I actually made jewelry for a couple of years too, so at one point, I had over 100 pair of earrings… I did a major accessory clean-out when Blake and I moved into our first house, and I pretty much only worn pearl studs for about 3 years (a jewelry restriction at both of my laboratory jobs). However, over the past year and a half, my love for earrings has been re-kindled!! I now have a job where I can wear whatever earrings I want, and I’ve had SO MANY great jewelry collaborations recently, that I just can’t contain my excitement for them anymore!!
