Gabrielle Reilly shared her ingenious creation on Twitter, where the video went viral - racking up more than 3.5 million views from impressed social media users.
Paralegal Gabrielle, who hails from Virginia, was inspired to make the earrings in a bid to prevent the AirPod buds from going missing - something we can ALL relate to, whatever type or brand of headphones you have.
In the video clip, you can see Gabrielle modelling the unique creation as earrings, before placing the actual earphones into her ears to show off their dual function.
Gabrielle, 22, said: "A lot of people either tell me I'm a genius or question the design.
"I think AirPod earrings was an idea a lot of people had, but didn't know how to realise the concept.
"I have been making jewellery ever since I can remember because my mom is very into DIY.
"Initially, I had put the AirPods on a chain necklace because I absolutely refuse to lose them.
"A lot of people ask, 'Why not just get regular earphones?' - I wanted AirPods because my cat has chewed through numerous wired earphones and I was tired of it.
"The necklace held up really well, so I thought, 'Why not make earrings?'
"It was more or less a joke, especially considering how AirPods have become a meme - but it was a functional joke."
Gabrielle said it was a surprise to see the AirPod earrings were such a hit with the world.
"I was so surprised when the post went viral, I didn't expect any of this at all," she continued.
"I'm super thankful for the support though, it has been quite an interesting experience.
"A majority of the reactions are jokes in response to AirPods but it's all fun, I enjoy seeing all the interactions with my posts."
Gabrielle is now selling custom Airpod earrings online for $20, and has plans to expand the range.
She added: "In the future I'm going to be selling more jewellery which isn't tech related but I'm still very excited about it."
Now, if someone could just design some earrings that stop the cord getting all tangled on non-wireless headphones, that would be swell. Ta!
