Post Earrings as Emergency Eyeglass Screw

I wear glasses and if you do too then you will understand the frustration of losing the tiny screws which hold lenses in place.  I've taken to carrying a watchmaker's screwdriver around at times so I can screw the little annoying thing back in place.  But sometimes, the screw falls out completely and can't be found. So what do you do?

Use an earring post to save the day at least until you can get to the optometrist!

I've introduced one designer before who uses earring posts and backs as fasteners.  I am sure there are more than one way to use earring posts and backs creatively!

  1. Great idea! I have to fix my sunglasses.

  2. That's a good point, Willi. I don't think optometrists would fix regular sunglasses for you!

  3. I use a bit of thin wire -- put it through and twist it. Bend it to hide it behind the frame. And file the ends if they're sharp.

    1. That's a good tip especially for jewelry artisans who are likely to have thin wire lying around!


You're AWESOME! Thanks for the comment and feedback. You do make a difference on my blog!
