Fly Fashion: 'Cold Hearted Snake' Earpiece






Wow, this new ear wear will look cute with short hair or an up do. The Lovemade for Han Cholo collaboration debuts with a snake shape earpiece, originally crafted to be worn behind the ear. The piece creates a new category of jewelry, an innovative departure from a standard earring. For this piece, no ear piercing is required. Resting on the fold of the adorner.
