Hand-Painted Bluetooth Earpieces: Totally Geeky or Geek Chic?

Seller Indigo Daydreams has found her geekery niche on Etsy: She paints Bluetooth earpieces (most of them seem to be old Plantronics 220s) from dull black plastic to whimsical, colorful little tchotchkes, like this teal polka-dot number.

Now, to be delicate here. . . . The 'tooth was pretty ugly before, but I am not sure it looks much better in the afterlife. Maybe it's because I've gotten used to thinking that sleek designs like the Jawbone are the name of the game.

But maybe I'm too safe in my choices — I also shied away a little from those customizable Jabra earpieces, so clearly I'm not the right audience. Are you?

I think the Bluetooths are actually adorable. I went to her Myspace page and the designs on there look way better than this one... Maybe this was a bad pic? Or a beta version? lol, IDK. See for yourself:

Since I changed phones, my headset doesn't match, but I like it too much to trade it in. I've been considering painting mine...but I wouldn't use a jellybean jar motif.

I love the concept, but am not a huge fan of that particular design. Maybe something less 80s?

I like the idea of a sweet painted piece, not really that particular colour scheme or patten tho...

I take exception to your implication that "totally geeky" and "geek chic" are mutually exclusive. :p

adorable! i picture someone like miranda july using this... retro yet geeky, it's a whimsical spin on a gadget that normally makes you look like a CIA spy...
