Designer Akiko Oue discovered the concept for her mag_net_ic earrings while picking up after small pieces left over from her jewelry making.

Says Oue, "One day, while picking up some pieces, I got the idea that it might be fun to make a piece of jewellery that people could assemble themselves by picking up small pieces of steel with a magnet."

Each set of mag_net_ic earrings includes two pierced earrings made of silver with a magnet on the base in a addition to 12 coloured dots that can be attached to the base.

Also included, a further six magnetic dots that people can use to attach larger numbers of the colored steel dots.

"In pictures the earrings may look a little fragile but they are actually quite strong. The dots are light enough that they generally won't come loose and fall off in everyday wear."

"I'd recommend taking them out for sports or swimming, though."
