Apple's AirPods have been the subject of many jokes since they were released in 2016. Small, expensive and high-tech as they may be, they are also really easy to misplace. As they are just about an inch and a half in length, it's not uncommon to hear about people losing their AirPods. However, if you own AirPods, you can try what this woman did - she turned them into earrings and called them Airings!
According to Buzzfeed News, Gabrielle Reilly - a 22-year-old paralegal from Virginia - turned her AirPods into earrings so they wouldn't get lost.
Gabrielle posted a video on Twitter modelling the AirPod earrings, and the video has gone viral with over 3.4 million 'views'.

"I absolutely refuse to lose them. My cat ate through two pairs of Beats Bluetooth earphones, and all my other earphones," Gabrielle told Buzzfeed News. "So I got the AirPods because there was no wire for her to chew but I still needed something to connect them."
"So I made earrings. I also have a chain necklace that I used to connect them. It took me maybe around an hour to make the earrings because I had to custom-make the piece that connects the AirPods to the earrings."
The Airings were met with such an enthusiastic response on Twitter that Gabrielle is now selling them for $20. They are detachable so they can be charged and worn as earrings.
