Open the hoop extracting the needle from the opposite tubular. Pull apart the edges so you can open wide enough the earring to wear it comfortably.
If you have a pendant you can insert it even after wearing the hoop
Close the hoop by reinserting the needle in the hopposite tubular. The smaller the hoop, the more difficult it will be to close it… You just need a little practice!
Over time, if you open and close the hoop often, it may happen that the two edges going to distance themselves: the needle will going to remain too far from the opposite tubular and you risk losing the pendant or the hoop! To remedy this problem, push the two edges towards each other (keeping the hoop open)… Take it slow but with no fear of breaking it. It will return to its original shape and it will close properly!
