14k Lever back earrings


#1

The lever back earrings that I use can be purchased disassembled or
can be disassembled for this reason. Try removing the rivet pin and
spring assembly and reassembling after you solder the base onto the
earring.


#2

Short of lasering or arc welding the finding, you must disassemble
it to solder. Use a ball bur to remover the spread rivet on one side
at the lever and push the rivet out with a fine point center punch
or a dead bur thats been sanded to a point. remove the lever and
solder . Rerivet with 22ga., file it to a point if necessary to work
it through, 24ga will fit easily but is way too sloppy, the hinge
will drift too much.
