Amethyst Bead Earstuds

Amethyst Bead Earstuds

We love how easy it is to use half drilled beads! This project is so simple and really shows the beauty of these sparkly amethyst beads, the birthstone of February.


1. Check the beads sit correctly on the post. You may find that you need to snip a little off the end of the post using side cutters if the bead sits too high up.

2. Lightly scuff the post a little using sanding sheets or a file - this will help the glue adhere to the bead and post.

3. Mix a small amount of Devcon Epoxy Glue and apply to the post of the earstud settings and set the beads.

4. Leave to dry. Attach the earring scrolls and your earrings are ready to wear!

How to use Devcon Epoxy Glue for jewellery making

Kernowcraft's jewellery making kits are aimed to inspire you - therefore the step by step instructions are available online only with a shopping list, where you can easily customise the design to suit you. We recommend printing or bookmarking this page ready to follow.

The suggested products used in this project are suggestions to inspire you. Products used were compatible at the time of making but do be aware that gemstones are natural and hand cut stocks can vary, so do use your own common sense as to the compatibility of each item when making.
