Hang a BlackBerry from your ear

Little BlackBerry earrings measure about three-quarters of an inch high.

In your face, iPhone! CrackBerry addicts now have a new way to show their loyalty to the smartphone--by dangling tiny versions from their ears.

And there's no need to fear added radiation from these BlackBerrys. The earrings, which measure about three-quarters of an inch high--are made from Fimo, a polymer clay. They were selling for $3 (plus shipping) on Etsy, an online market for homemade goods, but they're sold out now.

Maybe the upcoming release of Research In Motion's highly anticipated Bold will inspire the artist, whose Etsy handle is picnicbybarbfeldman, to pound out some more. She has been working with Fimo since 1971 and says she can make the earrings even tinier than the ones pictured--as studs about three-eighths of an inch wide and a half an inch high. Um, talk about BlackBerry thumb!

Thanks to Popgadget for ringing us up on this one.
