How To Turn Clip On Earrings Into Posts. The jeweler removes the existing style of the earrings such as bails jump rings clip-on backs or dangle earring components to leave the design by itself. Check out my blog.
These clip on earring converters are made of brass and are very simple to use. Simply slide the post into the top of tube and then gently bend the post forward so that the earring faces out. Have your wire cutters up as flush with the back of the earring as possible hold your breath and CUT.
I had no plan going into it but it proved to be pretty easy in most cases I just gave them a hard twist with my fingers or a yank with the pliers and they popped right off.
Using flush cutter pliers cut off the post from the back of the pierced earrings cutting the earrings as close as possible to where the post meets the back of the earrings. Then bend the post about 90. Slide the post into the barrel of the converter. Again using the pliers close the converter so that it holds the earring in place.
