Do you ever have a problem with losing your earrings?  My sister always complains that she has this problem.  For this reason, I designed these earrings with a locking back.  I sent her a pair to try because I was concerned that they would be hard to put on.    She called me from the car after picking up the earrings at the Post Office.  I explained that I wanted to learn from her if they were hard to put on.  While driving, she managed to put the earrings on and explained to me that she had no problems.  In fact she liked them so much that she wore them for the next month.
