Get Involved

    1. Donate your orphaned earrings or unwanted jewelry
    2. We find a home for the earring by beading it into a bracelet while recycling materials
    3. The bracelet gets sold and together we raise funds for orphans in Latin America


You know the earring that sits at the bottom of your jewelry box? The one laying there without a soul mate, collecting dust and surrounded by lint? Who once upon a time matched perfectly with your favorite skirt and seemed it sparkle beyond shine when you paired them with a plain white-t and jeans? If you’re anything like me, you still remember the tragic day when you lost the one earring and there was no consolation to the devastation! You loved this pair of earrings so much you just can’t bear to toss the surviving earring away… So, you save it, hoping for a miracle to happen and its soul mate to surface.

Yeah… get over it, it’s not going to happen!

Rather, embrace the loss and allow your orphaned earring do more than what you ever imagined – donate it and see it do great things!

The Orphaned Earring is dedicated to giving new meaning and purpose to your  lonely orphaned earrings.  If you send us your orphaned earring(s) we will find a beautiful home for it – as the centerpiece of a beautiful bracelet!

We are aware that, at this moment, we cannot fulfill all the basic needs of all the children but we strongly believe every child at the orphanages deserve a fun childhood. With a little bit of attention, fun and lots of love, we bring arts & crafts to brighten their life, spark creative thinking and at least for a little while try to make their harsh life experiences seem like a distant memory.

If you’d like to donate, THANK YOU, and you could safely do it through PayPal.

So stop waiting for a miracle, clean out your jewelry box, dust it off and send us your orphaned earring and see it transform into something beautiful!

    Do you have any idea how many orphaned earrings I have? It happened just as you said multiple times.

    I absolutely *adore* this idea!

    Thanks Tracy… You can tell we girls know the orphaned earring system, we just don’t get rid of them because we like them so much!

    Thanks Melanie! If you have any orphaned earrings you’d like me to find a home for please send and I’ll be more than happy to make something beautiful!

    Love this – but what about studs? I noticed many of these are dangle earrings – but I am more of a stud girl and I have tons of orphaned studs.
    Can you use those?

  5. The Orphaned Earring

    Hi! Yes! We use the studs as well. We bend the backs (the stick that goes into your earlobe) to create a small circle and then add a ring to it. Once the ring is there we can add it to a bracelet.

    So feel free to send your studs too! Thank you for stopping by and showing us some support! XOXO!

    Hi Amanda! Thank you so much for your kind words! YES! of course you can share! We need all the help we can get! I’m so humbled that you want to help – THANK YOU! and remember to send us your own orphaned earrings or unwanted jewelry so we can make more bracelets to sell! :)


    I read about your great work in a magazine article. I have tons of beads and earrings to send you. You will periodically be getting these items as I go through all the boxes of jewelry I have. Also, I’m a garage sale addict, so I’ll also be on the lookout for items to send you.
