Finding an earring design that suits your personality can be challenging, but if you happen to be a smoker perhaps these magnetic studs by HBA made from repurposed Bic lighters might be something you'd be interested in adorning. While the lighter no longer works, these earrings still convey an edgy aesthetic and rebellious vibe.

The earrings are fashioned out of two empty black Bic lighters that have been sliced horizontally across the middle. Attached to both ends of the lighter is a magnetic strip allowing you to clip these earrings onto your ear. Due to the sheer size and weight of these earrings, they're more suited to be worn along the cartilage than the lobe. These fashionably upcycled pieces speak to consumers seeking multipurpose from one time use products by turning them into wearable accessories.
