    they're called Ball Closure Rings (BCRs) or Captive Bead Rings (CBRs) and steel ones usually cost £2-4.. the best place to get them from is either BJS ^^ or Wildcat.

    Well it's hard for us to give you advice when we don't know exactly what it is your looking for.

    Have you not found anything you'd like to wear in your ear instead?

    Just push the ball out, preferably do it somewhere where if you drop it, it won't get lost then just take the hoop out
