I hate to make clip earrings! I always have problems getting the ear
paddle attached. There must be some trick to getting those little prong
things inserted properly.
I spread the ears (the part with the holes into which the paddle is
inserted) a bit, and then put one side in; making sure that the tail (the
part that keeps the paddle tight) is on the outside, and then roll the
other side in. Maybe, because I’ve done quite a few of them, I don’t find
them difficult to do?!?
Are you trying to use the large ones or the smaller ones??? The smaller
are a bit more difficult to handle.
