Help me find these talon/pointy earrings

I saw someone wearing gold stud earrings that I really liked last week. They were small but looked like little talons or horns with a slight curve. No more than 1/2" to 3/4" long. Very poor sketch here. Anyone have an idea of where I could find these? I've googled talon/pointy studs with no luck.

You might have luck with the phrases "ear crawler" or "crawler earrings."

If it stuck out instead of going up the ear flat, then I bet it was a thorn earring like this

I can't get your image to show up... any chance you can post another?

Based on other responses, it sounds like you're looking for something similar to a lot of earrings I have. Useful keywords have been "spike," "bar," "sharp," "geometric," "stick," and "minimalist." I wouldn't necessarily use "stud" when searching, as some people/manufacturers don't seem to use that word at all. This is particularly true on Aliexpress (which I recommend), but I've noticed it elsewhere as well.
