Gabrielle's Original Tweet Showing the AirPod Earrings in Action
The first thing a lot of people say when advising someone else about buying AirPods is, "Try not to lose them!" Misplacing them is a valid concern, and one woman thought of the most creative way to prevent that by turning them into earrings. Gabrielle Reilly told BuzzFeed News, "I absolutely refuse to lose them. My cat ate through two pairs of Beats Bluetooth earphones, and all my other earphones. So I got the AirPods because there was no wire for her to chew, but I still needed something to connect them." Gabrielle did what only a crafty genius would do, and her earrings a pretty cute IMO.
By securely fastening the AirPods to a detachable clasp, Gabrielle can wear the wireless earphones as dangling earrings and make sure they don't disappear, and she can pop them out any time she wants to charge them. The 22-year-old took her idea to the next level in a really genius way and is now selling the "Airings" for $20. Honestly, why didn't we think of this sooner? People who responded to her now-viral tweet had the exact same question. See an up-close version of the earrings — and people's hilarious reactions to this very 2019 invention — ahead.
