    these look very very cool, I love the idea of them immensely!

    however, as much as i don't want to be "that guy", you might want to consider using actual jewellery findings for the bit that goes in to you, the legs on those things are all manner of nickle and tin and on very old resistors might even be lead, it depends when and where they were made but non of the usual metals are body safe.

    Instead of 10 Ohms if you had used 1 K's it would have been a 12K earring set. Resistors are always lying around. Great work! You have my vote.

    Nice way to recycle components if you're not going to use them.
