The redoubtable (and adorable) tardigrades are critters that are famous for their ability to cling to life in adverse conditions... and now they can cling to your earlobes! These Tardigrade earrings have an integrated ear hook that positions them so that they appear to grip your ear with their hindmost set of feet.
Tardigrades (Phylum Tardigrada), also known as water bears and moss piglets, are an ancient lineage whose exact relationship to arthropods and other animals remains a mystery. They are found in a wide variety of ecosystems, from deep ocean trenches to the tallest mountains, and at all latitudes! They are able to resist extreme heat and cold, dehydration, pressure, radiation, and most amazingly, the vacuum of outer space!
Ear hooks are hypoallergenic Surgical Stainless Steel.
