wound up so to speak in order to form a piece that sits up on the
earlobe in a tight cluster fashion and is held in place by the

ones that are still too big.
After some research I came across a company called: K&J

the packet of 10 cost only 90 cents plus shipping. We will keep the
others for future repairs or share them with other jewelers in our
You can find them on line on lineon lineon line at:
I had to use the magnets because that's what the earring called for
and it's my job to make it function again in original fashion.
The earrings now match and the customer is thrilled!
