BUY or DIY: Pearl Shoulder Epaulettes or Pearl Body Jewelry.

Top Photos: BUY $250 Pearl Shoulder Epaulettes from the Etsy shop of MyLittleBride and Efrat Davidsohn Jewelry. The epaulettes clip on. Her other much more ornate necklaces, that cover the shoulders, are gorgeous and reminiscent of the Victorian era.

Bottom Photo: DIY by Panda Hall, using brooches to hold the “shoulder necklaces” in place. I rarely look at anything on Panda Hall without researching where the DIY actually came from. I found the original Etsy source for this DIY in the comment section.

Below is one of  Efrat Davidsohn’s beautiful Shoulder Necklaces. It’s $1,300 and you can find it here.

Now you can show your love of classic video games on your earlobes. This awesome Pac-Man ear piercing is the work of xChrisxPiercerx, who works at Precision Body Piercing in Marquette, MI. The tiny Pac-Man stud is made of 14k yellow gold and the ghost is solid white gold, perfect choices for both. We’re still trying to find out of little Pac-Man makes waka-waka-waka sounds.
