I never really wear any other jewelry than simple earstuds these days. I was gifted new ones for my birthday and opened my jewelry box in front of Mr. Imma. He had never seen my old collection of big dangling earrings, I put them in for him and he loved them. So I want to wear them more often.
In the meantime, I have become sensitive to nickle and I never liked those heavy dangling earrings. My idea was to take the French hook part off and attach the dangly bit to something that is apparantly called a ball post: https://www.jewelrysupply.com/Ball-Post-with-Parallel-Ring-18x7mm-Surgical-Stainless-Steel-2-Pcs_p_1385.html or a half ball post: https://www.jewelrysupply.com/Half-Ball-Post-with-Ring-185x9mm-Silver-Plated-Surgical-Stainless-Steel-Post-10-Pcs_p_1393.html I think that this will make them more comfortable to wear.
It looks like I need some sort of ring part to attach the earring part to the dangly bit, right? The kind of ring that has a small opening at the top that you would open and close with pliers. What kind of pliers would you use for that? I’d ask at my local craft shop but they only sell this stuff, they didn’t seem to have an experienced jewelry maker in their team.
