Adding an Earring Back

For Post Style Earrings -

1. Cut a square piece of thin suede, ultrasuede or other non-fray lining for each of the earrings. Make the lining slightly smaller than the knotted portion of the earring so that it doesn't show when viewed from the front.

2. Poke a hole in the very center of each lining with a narrow embroidery needle. Set aside.

3. Put a small amount of Aleene's type glue on the top area of the metal earring pad that surrounds the post.

4. Thread the earring post through the hole on the wrong side of the lining and join the glued earring pad to the lining (sec Figure 15).

5. Cover the back of the joined earring pad/lining with E-6000 glue. Glue lining/pad to the back of the earring.
