I don’t play guitar, but I can’t help but think they would be a bit clumsy to use. Wouldn’t there be a risk of the star falling off?
And there is that annoying having to keep your head so close to the sound hole thing while you are playing… tedious, and hard to dance around while you shred.
Maybe not, they are not glued on but are hanging from the earring hook. Which I imagine would be the biggest challenge here.
Yeah, you know, idiot me totally missed the earring bit. That’s what I get for posting when I’m sleep-deprived.
I need to buy these for white elephant next year!
wear them to a…rockin rabbi fest perhaps? ive got nothing.
…or to a Black Shabbat concert
Oi! Such a mushugana train!
Black Shabbat is good, but they always cut the intro off of the songs. Oy! Care for some wine and sponge cake?

They’re not meant to be used to actually play a guitar, they’re earrings. Clearly meant for any Jewish chick who wants to feel a little more rock’n'roll!
Aw, I really want these but the seller does not ship to the UK! (Target market also includes “Jewish groupies”)
(By which I mean groupies who are also Jewish, not groupies for Jews. Although those do also exist.)
I’ll admit to a bit of groupie-love for the people. I did name my son after two Jews (Mel Brooks and Moe of the Three Stooges)
So… Melmo? When Elmo grows up and discovers his Jewish heritage?
We did debate on calling him Maurice. After everything, though, we settled on a neutral first name.
Thanks for the imagery though—totally had a Hasidic Elmo thing going on up there.
Maybe she named him Brooks Howard. That sounds so waspy but she knows its sleath Jewish.
Actually, his middle name is Brooks and we have called him Moe ever since we found out I was pregnant.
I also have to admit to extreme love for the creators of lox on a bagel. Nom.
I’d be willing to reship… for postage and a slight processing fee…
Jeepers people, I was kidding!
Hey IndieChic – Now shipping to UK! Thanks for letting me know there’s a market there!
I hate to say it, but I know someone these’d be perfect for. Luckily, I’m too broke to consider buying them.
I’ve always wondered – why does the Star of David have the symbol for pi inside?
Is that to celebrate your peoples’ love of baked goods?
its the hebrew word ‘chai’ חי
it means life
Thanks for being gentle with the Gentile!
Thank you. I thought it was because that 1.618 didn’t fit in the start.
1.618? The golden ratio?
I carved a pi symbol on one of our jack-o-lanterns one Halloween (lame joke, I know). It didn’t come out so well. We had a Jewish couple taking their kids trick-or-treating think it was chaim (sorry, I think I misspelled it there), and that they’d found some other Jews in the neighborhood. We hated bursting their bubble; they’d seemed so happy.
Yeah, I don’t quite feel alive until I’ve had my morning cup of chai.
Not just for women! Lenny Kravitz would totally rock a pair. L’chaim!
As could Gene Simmons. Such a good boy!
I’m glad to see she doesn’t discriminate…
I need a rainbow set with a pirate on one side and a pentacle on the other…
WTF! My code was the same for all those links…
I dunno…I’m rather temped by these. It’s just so..out there.
Me too. Colorful, lightweight…and I’m sure April could get them for us wholesale.
I know oodles of lady rabbis, cantors and songleaders, some of whom play guitar. (Go Reform Judaism, go!) I’d totally get them for my synagogue’s cantor, but I’m not sure I can compete with her favourite ‘chai notes’ design: http://chainote.com
Forgot a potential client
You could shred a little for your mother sometime?
I confess: I bought these when the post first appeared, and I love them. People think they’re hilarious. (Which they are.) My mom wants to buy a pair for my brother’s fiancee, who is indeed a Jewish guitarist.
OMG. Can’t believe I’ve been featured here. Thanks for the laughs, everyone!
Actually… I quite like these. D: Too bad I’m not Jewish or even religious.
