Black Cubic Zirconia Snaptite Earrings
This jewellery making project couldn't be easier! Our sterling silver snaptite earstud settings are so easy to set and perfect for beginners, making them so popular. We've used our sparkly black cubic zirconia faceted stones but you can choose any faceted stones you like!
STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS
1. Place the faceted stones face down (flat side down) onto a firm yet cushioned surface such as a bead mat placed on your worktop.
2. Place the mount over the stone and apply gentle pressure to 'click' the stone into place.
3. Check that the claws are firmly in place - it may be necessary to gently adjust the claws with a pusher to ensure a secure fit.
It's as simple as that!
RECOMMENDED TOOLS FOR THIS PROJECT
Stone holder - perfect for gripping small stones
Pusher - to ensure the claws are secure around the stone
CUSTOMISE YOUR KIT
Make the design your own by choosing your favourite faceted stones to use with the snaptite settings.
