Optical Illusion Earrings Are a Clever Twist on Statement-Making Style

Optical Illusion Earrings are a Playful Addition to Everyday Style

These optical illusion earrings are not what they seem. Though the minimalist shapes appear to pierce through multiple parts of an ear, Otis Jaxon Jewelry has cleverly disguised a more conventional approach. The sterling silver hearts, triangles, and squares are worn like a traditional drop earring—inserted into your lobe piercing—that are then twisted upwards into the appropriate shape.

By making these earrings oversized, the whole ear suddenly becomes a vessel for contemporary style. This has a statement-making effect. But thanks to the elegantly-crafted forms, Otis Jaxon's creations refrain from being too ostentatious for everyday wear.

Though available in pairs, Otis Jaxon also recommends wearing just one for an even edgier look. These wearable illusions are now available on Etsy.

Add some fun to your everyday style with optical illusion earrings by Otis Jaxon.
