make me giddy’s earrings for mental health


Snazzy jewellery won’t solve your problems, but it will lighten the mood (also on the list: red lippy, glitter, chocolate bikkies and dogs in colourful hats). Next time you’re feeling down, try treating your lobes to a pair of pretty dangles – they might help put some pep in your step.

If you want to help other folks feel better, too, consider these polymer clay earrings by Northern Territory brand Make Me Giddy. Money from the sale of each pair goes to mental health organisations Lifeline, Beyond Blue, headspace and the Black Dog Institute.

They’re also handmade by a gal who gets it. Johanna “Giddy” Goldsmith is a designer and mental health advocate who lives with bipolar disorder, anxiety, ADHD and OCD. Giddy says she started Make Me Giddy to combine her love of creating with her desire to support conversations about mental health.
