Ceah- I never buy earring posts unless I'm using the special locking
ear nuts that require special posts.
I just draw my wire to.8 mm and solder that on and cut to the proper
length for the customers ears. I then notch the posts with my double
round pliers. I gently squeeze the pliers where I want my notch and
spin the post in my hands as I squeeze.
We do mostly custom work and I like to make my posts to fit the
customer's ear lobe thickness and to notch them where they will fit
just right. Our clients like the extra service and attention to
Have fun and make lots of jewelry.
