I have some Wendy Gell earrings from the '80's I would love to have the clip fixed in back of these clip on earrings. Does anyone know of a place that is great at fixing good quality costume jewelry--especially earrings?

Not sure. I would start with a local jeweler or a watch repair shop. I'm sure they can help, if not maybe they can direct you to someone who can.

Maybe an Antique dealer could help also.

You could also try a beading store where they have different inexpensive jewelry gadgets - even ACMoore's or Walmart's might have what you're looking for (metal pieces and a hot glue gun etc).

Most jewelers won't touch costume jewelry because if they damage or destroy it, they can't replace it.
