Instructions for making 10 Minute Snap-Fit Earrings Using Gemstones and Jewelry Making Findings:
Jewelry Making Supplies Required:
Please note that very rarely, the prongs in a snap type setting can be bent during shipping. This doesn't happen often, but it has happened. If this happens, in almost all cases, the prongs can be easily bent back into shape. If you have a pair of chain nose pliers, this is the preferred tool to use to straighten the prongs. If you don't have pliers, your fingers will work.
Summary on Making Earrings with Snap Fit Findings:
The earring jewelry making projects described here are perhaps some of the easiest jewelry making projects available anywhere. Please note that setting larger gemstones will be more difficult than setting smaller gemstones and in particular, setting a 10 mm gemstone is significantly more difficult. Also please note that setting a 10mm gemstone with a snap-fit post finding may require a larger ear clutch like the larger clutch parts, item 1176 and 1177 that we recommended above.
