I love these little ear wires. They are delicate and allow the earring stones and gems to be the main feature art of the earring. Also, if you pinch them closed a little bit around the earlobe, they keep the earrings from falling out. I have switched out all of the ear wires on my other earrings for these. I love them.
I have been purchasing these ear wires for a few years and love them. The wire is very good thickness and quality. They are much shorter than regular ear wires, which is why I like them (and my customers), because they aren't hanging down past the earlobes like most other ear wires. You definitely have to wear the clutches with them, but I have one customer who just pinches them together, and she's happy.
These are especially great for customers who have smaller ears, teens, etc.
I love to make earrings for my 7yr old daughter. She is very petite and most ear wires are to big looking for her size, some might say god awful. With the size of these wires I can make petite earrings that are perfect for her size without it having to be a stud earring.
These are great wires. They are sturdy, unobtrusive and do a great job. They allow full focus on the dangle. My 56 year old fingers find them easy to use; just be sure to put a clutch on the end. Nothing will show behing the earlobe. They might be difficult for someone with very large lobes, but perfect for people with small to regular size earlobes. I reorder all the time.
