I make my own clip ons using converters to make earrings intended for pierced ears into clip ons. Like Marg I just bend back the clasp a little to avoid that painful feeling. I make my own because finding clip ons in the store is almost impossible. Would love to get my ears pierced but would create too many issues, so alas clip ons it is. They still look good and I’ve received a number of compliments on how they look.
