In the strictly stratified society of the time, this is a fall in status because of the bad reputation that maids have for stealing, spying and sleeping with their employers. A further complication is that the Vermeers belong to the grudgingly tolerated Catholic minority while Griet is a Protestant. Griet also finds it difficult to keep on the right side of Tanneke, the other house servant, who is moody and jealous.
Ear thread[ edit ] Or earthreader, ear string, threader, a chain that is thin enough to slip into the ear hole, and come back out, dangles. Sometimes, people add beads or other materials onto the chain, so the chain dangles with beads below the ear.
It does not fall out because it is slightly bigger than the piercing. It is quite popular amongst teenage and preteen girls in Hong Kong, as most schools do not allow stud earrings.

November Learn how and when to remove this template message A navel curve used as an earring with a green gemmed ear stud above it Body piercing jewelry is often used for ear piercings, and is selected for a variety of reasons including the availability of larger gauges, better piercing techniques, and a disdain for mainstream jewelry.
The gap is closed with a small bead that is held in place by the ring's tension. Larger gauge ball closure rings exhibit considerable tension, and may require ring expanding pliers for insertion and removal of the bead.
Barbells — Barbells are composed of a thin, straight metal rod with a bead permanently fixed to one end. The other end is threaded, either externally or tapped with an internal thread, and the other bead is screwed into place after the barbell is inserted through the ear.
Since the threads on externally threaded barbells tend to irritate the piercing, internal threads have become the most common variety. Circular barbells — Circular Barbells are similar to ball-closure rings, except that they have a larger gap, and have a permanently attached bead at one end, and a threaded bead at the other, like barbells.
This allows for much easier insertion and removal than with ball closure rings, but at the loss of a continuous look. Plugs — Earplugs are short cylindrical pieces of jewelry.
Some plugs have flared ends to hold them in place, others require small elastic rubber rings O-rings to keep them from falling out.
They are usually used in large-gauge piercings. Flesh tunnels — Flesh tunnels, also known as eyelets or Bullet Holes, are similar to plugs; however, they are hollow in the middle. Flesh tunnels are most commonly used in larger gauge piercings either because weight is a concern to the wearer or for aesthetic reasons.

Clip-on earrings — Clip-on earrings have existed longer than any other variety of non-pierced earrings. The clip itself is a two-part piece attached to the back of an earring.
The two pieces closed around the earlobe, using mechanical pressure to hold the earring in place. Magnetic earrings — Magnetic earrings simulate the look of a pierced stud earring by attaching to the earlobe with a magnetic back that hold the earring in place on by magnetic force.
Stick-on earrings — Stick-on earrings are adhesive-backed items which stick to the skin of the earlobe and simulate the look of a pierced stud earring. They are considered a novelty item. Spring hoop earrings — Spring hoops are almost indistinguishable from standard hoop earrings and stay in place by means of spring force.
An alternative which is often used is bending a wire or even just using the ring portion of a CBR to put on the earlobe, which stays on by pinching the ear Ear hook earrings — A large hook like the fish hook that is big enough to hook and hang over the whole ear and dangles.
The hoop — A hoop threads over the ear and hangs from just inside the ear, above where ears are pierced. Mobiles or other dangles can be hung from the hoop to create a variety of styles.
Ear screws — Screwed onto the lobe, allow for exact adjustment—an alternative for those who find clips too painful. Ear cuffs — Wrap around the outer cartilage similar to a conch piercing and may be chained to a lobe piercing.You searched for: whimsyandpop!
