10 Terrific Things About Having a Nickel Allergy

 or, the Nickel Allergy Top-10

You know, sometimes I think that I give the impression that life with a nickel allergy is just one big downer ...  But really my life is so much better since I have discovered that I have a nickel allergy. Maybe you have your own list. Here are just a few things I can think of, right off the top of my head.


Since I only re-discovered I could wear earrings in 2009, I do NOT have a huge backlog of earrings from the '80's. One cannot be too grateful to have avoided such a fate.

In creating and running a business, I have discovered I have a knack for really odd things ... like graphic design,  product photography, and, you know, keeping tents from blowing away in the wind.

I would never have started making my own jewelry at all, if I could have worn jewelry the "easy" way. Allow me a moment, while I ponder the sad little misfit I may have been.  .....

If I HAD started making jewelry (and did not have a nickel allergy), I could easily have fallen into the trap of using nickel-plated clasps and other garbage, which would have caused more nickel allergies for others ... Wow, what a thought.

I get to meet all of my great customers. My customers are so kind, and concerned, and seem to enjoy what I make. I know don't get to meet most of you in person, but you make doing business so enjoyable!


Making jewelry keeps me off the streets. I may have been forced to pursue a life of crime, or worse yet, fiddling ...

I get to hear amazing nickel allergy stories almost every day from people I meet. I mean I just don't think the existing statistics on the nickel allergy quite cover the scope of this problem.

I don't have to keep scratching some mystery rash that causes me chronic pain for the rest of my life. That's a big deal. Like a really big deal.

I get to do THIS all day long if I want to. Have I told you that Anodizing Niobium is really cool?

...and the #1 reason that having a nickel allergy has improved my life ... 

I have conquered my fear of shopping online!

  2. Absolutely nice blog, I read and concerned about Nickel Allergy. As per my experience, some of the people are facing this kind of problem like extreme itching, discolored skin if they are wearing nickel jewelry. I have also face same kind of problem when I used this jewelry. As Titanium Jewelry is on trends so one of my friends suggested me to buy a Titanium earring from en.tatias.com. It's fashionable and looks impressive. I just loved it.
