Love the charms. But I only wear a hearing aid in one ear. (Deaf in my other ear, MAYBE a CI for it someday.) How do you handle that kind of earring problem?

I’ve posted Hayleigh’s business before on Hearing Loss Association of Ventura County Facebook page, but I can do it again.

Hi I am a Mummy of a wonderful little girl Lucie (2) who is bi-laterally implanted & we both love the Cochlear Bling page – she was pointing at all your designs & smiling we especially loved the cochlea shells. Very nice- she signed want want :) (learning very fast).

We are over the pond in the UK following the link on facebook & loving all the info :).

Thank goodness for cochlear implants they have given our beautiful little girl not only a lovely voice but also a very cheeky character that flits between the hearing & non-hearing world.

Keep making your designs Hayleigh they are fab & maybe you could make some for the younger end of the market similar to the boys & tomboys section (loved them too) keep up the fab work.

Hey Everybody,

Thank you so much for your kind words! I love what I do and I love working on special orders too! I am always happy to help individualize an order. For example, when someone wears one hearing aid or cochlear implant and does not have one on the other ear. I want everyone who wants charms or tube twists or bling to be able to have them work for them! Please let me know if you have any special charm or CI design requests and I will see what I can do. Thank you so much also for sharing my business. I really appreciate it!

Thank you again and Keep having fun with your hearing devices!

Your Friend,

The CI blings look really cool, haven’t seen anything like that before I’m sure my sweet daughter Jocelyn she’s five years old bilateral CI’s and such a girly girl would love it, we are going to def try some of the CI blings

The Cochlear Bling pink flower is amazing, very beautiful.
I’m loving it (for my daughter – almost 2)
What a pity that it is sold out :-(

Hey Hayleigh, I love your charms! I’ve been waiting for new bling to be put up for Cochlear Bling, particularly more flower bling for bilateral users, since I am going bilateral this summer! Please let me know when you add some more bling! I’ve known about your site for a while now… and I love it so much! It’s fantastic that you’re doing this.

If I were to win this contest, I would love to win bilateral divine diamonds for Cochlear Bling! I am definitely posting about this on my blog and my facebook page, as well as tweeting it! I know lots of people who would love to add some “bling-bling” to their ears, be it their hearing aids or their cochlear implants!

Thank you so much, Rachel for posting this! And thank you to you, too, Hayleigh, for doing this contest!
