I must confess: I wrote this blog out of personal necessity and not for our viewing audience per se. The story goes like this: I went on a trip with only one pair of earrings…and forgot the backing for one of them.
The answer, in true Internet fashion, was only a click away:
Find a pen or pencil that has a miniature eraser on the end of it.
Pull off the eraser and cut or pinch it down to a smaller size.
Stick it on the back of your earring in place of the original backing. Push the eraser up tight against the back of the earring to ensure it is properly in place.
