Hello, I looked through you earrings DIY but didn’t see any, so I was wondering if you knew of a way to make clip-ons. I’m allergic to the metal in most earrings so clip-ons are all I can wear. Thank you.

Thank you.Truebluemeandyou: I have pierced ears and have tried for years buying every type of earring finding available and still could not wear them, so I only wear clip-ons. You can buy clip-on earring backs at crafts stores, amazon, etsy and ebay. On an Etsy Forum one woman liked the magnetic type the best (which I’ve never tried but am definitely going to now).Here are some clip-on tutorials to give you some ideas:

This blog is for my crafting alter ego. I did lots of crafts with my very artistic mother growing up and continue doing them with kids now. I love really good kids' crafts that hold their attention and mine.
