    Thank you so much Haley! I have a pair of clip on Sara Coventry earrings that hurt my ears, so I need to convert them to pierced. I have a matching necklace, so I am excited to do this.

    I have all of my grandma’s vintage clip on earrings and I just bought pierced posts for them. I was concerned about taking the clip on part off but watching this helped a lot! Thank you so much, I am looking forward to my diy project!
