Thai translation:µèÒ§ËÙẺà»ç¹µØèÁ
Explanation:
I think 'earings' here means earrings but not sure what it's called in Thai. It seems to me that this term refers to a small buttonlike earrings worn by children, not a beautiful one.

From Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary
Sleeper : a small earring or stud worn to keep the hole of a pierced ear from closing.
and
Stud: a small often round earring made for a pierced ear

Explanation:
No skills in Tahï, just a short helping hand on "sleeper earings" which are basically small rings, barely more than 5 mm usually. But then you already knew that, no doubt.
