Ariah is a BFC ink Pen Pals Carmen, who arrived without her ears pierced at all. The other Pen Pals had their ears pierced but did not come with earrings.
Chloe, lend me your ear.
The BFC ink girls have a whoppinggreat big hole for their earrings. With the arrival of the Pen Pals something had to be done, and so I investigated American Girl doll earrings.
This pic is of BFC ink earrings, from the left - see how large the post width is, most of the earrings had almost clear plastic posts with painted silver stud head, though I think the original 3 girls were coloured, I only have Addisons, they had a pink "stone" look in the stud, but it very easily peels off. The earring in the middle with the dangle is an American Girl doll earring, the posts are much thinner, and lastly is a human earring.
Whilst most of the girls earring holes were still too wide for even American Girl doll earrings, the exception has been Ellie, and she is pictured below with the heart shaped silver studs with half hoop add on.
The others girls were certainly not over the moon with their boring BFC ink earrings, and so a way to reduce the size of the piercing was needed..
I can't even remember who suggested it to give them the credit, but I have found that the rubber earring backs, 3mm ones seem to do the job just nicely, and behold.....

The Journey Girls do not have their ears pierced, straight out of the box. If any of them would have I would have thought they'd have decorated Jordanna, but not to worry. The girls thought they'd get them done all together, for mutual support
