Etsy crafter and gynocologist Virginia Smith started making sparkly earrings in the shape of an IUD and now they have become a symbol of support for a Colorado bill that will provide contraception to low income women if passed. Colorado has already had some fantastic outcomes with an initiative that provided teenagers and other low income women with IUDs. The rate of teenage pregnancy decreased 40% in the 4 years.

Politicians and advocates are wearing the IUD earrings to help raise awareness and spark conversation. If you’d like your own sparkly IUDs to wear in your ears, visit Virginia Smith’s shop : Sharlen Jewelry Creations
