Low Wall Bezel Earrings Jewelry Making Project with White CZ and common jewelry supplies.Low Wall Bezel Gemstone Earrings Jewelry Making Project made out of common jewelry supplies using standard jewelry hand tools:

Low Wall Bezel Jewelry Making Project Made with Tanzanite CZs out of common jewelry supplies.This jewelry making project uses our Low Wall Bezel Setting in either 4mm 6mm, 8mm or 10mm. The earrings that will be made have plenty of bling and have the added attribute of motion since the Low Wall Bezel dangles from your ear wire. In a low light setting, these earrings will capture the available room light and reflect it, making them really sparkle. If you want to look like a million dollars but not pay a million dollars -- these earrings may be what you need.

This is a project that is suitable for a beginner to making jewelry, even a beginner who is all thumbs.  It requires a pair of our Low Wall Bezel findings (item 3209 and Item 3210 in Gold Filled or Item 3211 and Item 3212 in Sterling Silver from our Internet store.) It also requires a pair of ear wire findings like the post finding with the ball and loop shown above (Item 2660 or Item 2659 with an ear clutch like Item 2662 or Item 2661). You will need to purchase round gemstones in either 8mm or 10mm to match your round bezel setting.  You can view our free video on making low wall bezel gemstone earrings here.  The steps involved in making these earrings can be found below.

Step-by-Step Instructions for making the Low Wall Bezel Earrings using common jewelry supplies and hand tools:

Step 1: Position one round, low wall bezel finding upside down on a table top or other flat surface. These low wall bezel findings are Item 3209 and Item 3210 in gold-filled and Item 3211 and Item 3212 in sterling silver.

Step 2: Place your gemstone face down in the finding as shown below.

Step 3: Now hold the finding and gemstone between the thumb and forefinger of your non-dominant hand while you use your bent chain nose pliers to press two opposing tabs flat against the gemstone as shown below center-left.

Step 4: Finish setting the stone by pressing the opposite pair of tabs down. With all four tabs pressed down, then re-visit each tab in turn and gently squeeze it flat against the gemstone. See the picture 4A below.  When completed the setting should appear as shown below center-right (picture 4B) when viewed from the front and the gemstone will be held securely in position by four tabs.

Step 5: Now you are ready to connect the setting to your ear wire finding. Open the loop in your ear wire with your bent chain nose pliers, connect the setting, then close the loop. Instructions for opening and closing loops can be found in our free video here. The ear wire findings we recommend are items 2659, 2660, 0117, and 0421 from our Internet store.
