If you’re on the same page as Apple, you already know that wired headphones are a thing of the past. If you’re wondering what to do with your now-totally-outdated-and-utterly-worthless audio accessories, you might consider turning them into a pair of tasteful earrings, like these inventive Etsy merchants. 

Several crafty sellers have taken the novel step of turning Apple’s earphones into stylish ear jewelry. The iconic white EarPods are instantly recognizable, as are the slightly older Apple earphones that they replaced. 

There are a few different styles available. Some include additional touches like beads and metal elements, while others are more straightforward. 

As cool as these are, their existence makes us wonder whether Apple’s newly released wireless AirPods could be made into earrings as well. With no wires, they could dangle on your earlobes until you needed them, then be slid into your ears at a moment’s notice. Perhaps Apple has missed out on a new fashion craze?
