1000 and 1200 Series Ear Clips Installation Instructions
Some helpful tips when using our findings!
These clips come with a removable spring. The clip assembly should be disassembled to attach the stem to your jewelry and then reassembled after it is attached. Place a small drop of oil (we use the point of a needle) on the spring where it meets the stem after your are finished with polishing and cleaning. Heat on the springs may affect the effectiveness of the clip.
The clips have a small dimple in the spring to interlock with a small bump on the frame to retain the spring and prevent slipping during operation. Do not file off.
At our shop, the pins are finished with a laser, welding them to the tubing. If you don’t have a laser, the pins may be balled with a torch. We do not recommend riveting as this often results in pinching of the joint and creating excessive friction, diminishing the effectiveness of the clip.
Remember 18kt pink gold requires special handling, it can crack unexpectedly if heated and cooled multiple times.
