Need Idea For Back Of Earrngs

by Melonie

Hello,

I am making a pair of steampunk earrings out of watch face. I need something to glue to the back of the earrings so that I can add fish hook findings to it. Any suggestions?

I need something with a hole in it I can glue to the back to add the ring and finding to it? Does this make any sense?

Filigree Back
by: Anonymous

I hope this helps but I would just get a round filigree (has lots of holes) backing and clue it to your watch back.

You can also get one that is just 2-3mm larger than the watch back and that way you will have more space to hang things. An oval shape will work too.

Wire Swirl Connectors

Try making a continuous swirl or rounds with wire at the end when you have the size you want end it with a loop to hook your earring to the ear wire.

I call them swirl connectors as you glue them to the back of your object.
