I've searched for a video on this site to help, but I don't think it's that. I think that it's impossible to put these in! I've tried for an hour now, and all I've accomplished is a bloody ear hole. These earrings are so small, even though I have small hands, I feel like I have meaty football fingers trying to get this in. I'm afraid to get over my bathroom mirror lest one part falls and I lose it forever, and other mirrors are too far away. I just can't get the earring from pushing through the back, holding it in, and trying to make both ends meet! Even when I try to insert one part into the other in front of me and not into my ear, it's hard. I honestly don't know what to do. I am at work, but even when I went into the bathroom at work I couldn't get the earring in! I see all the great reviews on here, and it makes me wonder if I have special challenges that I can't get these in! I'll keep trying, and trying though! Be forewarned, shoppers. You will need to really work at this to get it into your ear!
