Here’s something I do that I think makes me a model of resourcefulness and cleverity (for people who wear earrings):
I bought a 50-pack of sterling silver earring hooks on Amazon. I often see really cool earrings at flea markets or antique stores or cheap vendors in cities, and the hooks are crappy or used. I just use my needle nose pliers to switch out the hooks for my nice new ones and Boom! instant fix.
