Clay earrings are a thing, and we're kinda obsessed

Clay earrings are back, babes! 

And we aren't talking about those clunky millennial clay earrings your English teacher wears. Imagine a pair of unique, intricately designed earrings, perfect to pair with plain tees and a messy bun. Quirky jewelry is becoming more and more popular (think frog rings, mushroom earrings or tarot card necklaces), and clay earrings are as eccentric and special as it gets. No matter if you love expressing your style with simple studs or extravagant dangling earrings, clay earrings are definitely up your alley.


We are obsessed with clay earrings, from studs to hanging designs. No matter which style you opt for, make clay earrings the focus of your fit. Colorful, geometric designs pair well with T-shirts, solid colors and matching sweat sets—taking a plain outfit to a whole new level. Be sure to show off your earrings with a cutesy updo. Messy buns, ponies or a claw clip will do any pair justice. 


Shop small when purchasing your clay earrings. For quality, homemade earrings, check small businesses on Instagram and Esty. (We're loving IndigoClayJewelry, WildHoneyClay, BlushesandNeutrals, LivelyHoney and RadiantClayStudio.) One of our fave pastimes is scrolling through your IG explorer page in search of small businesses that sell clay earrings.


Clay earrings open up the opportunity for self-expression. They are the definition of a statement piece. Whether you are a fan of stars and the moon or cannot get enough of floral jewelry, the endless design possibilities of these earrings mean there is a perfect pair for everyone.
