Uses for Single Pierced Earrings

For those beautiful earrings that you have lost one and think you should throw the remaining one away, don't. They are handy for several things especially the posts. For the large hoops you can use them for hanging your scarves you wear and hang them with the outfit you plan on wearing it with and place it over the hook part of hanger. For the open hoop earring, you can use the hoop like a tie tack or lapel pin and hang your necklace you plan on wearing with the outfit you plan to wear. They will not leave big holes in most clothes. The earrings can be pinned to the outfit. Also they can be used for plunging necklines for the work place, use them to close the gap and you can also use it if a button pops off to close the gap, until the button can be replaced.


As for crafts, I use posts for embellishments for the flowers, jewelry, or hats for bears or dolls. I also use bookmarks for cross-stitching for storing my earrings, while traveling or at home, no wasted time finding a matching pair.

The posts are sharp enough to use as tacks or pins for your cork message boards.

I do not have pierced ears but have always loved some of the earrings so I use them as pins, the marks they leave are negligible and with such a variety I can match every outfit.

Thank you for your talented information for earrings. I would never have thought of this. I have thought to use some earrings as a decorative end to bookmarks. Love these and Thank You !
