Cute earrings, but uncomfortable backs?

I loved these earrings when I saw them in the store, but when I wore them I kept getting poked by the post in the back. 

I went to my local Jo Ann's crafts store and found earring backs (in the bead sections) that close completely and don't poke.  I used 2 small pliers (also found in the bead section) to open the loops at the top of these earrings and take off the old backs. Then I used the pliers to attach the new earring backs and close the loops.  Now I feel comfortable and clever whenever I wear them.

  1. or you can buy Baxies earring backs and your earrings won't poke you. They are available at select Michaels stores.
    Thanks for the great information.
