Citrine Flower Charm Earrings
We love this spring-inspired design, featuring our bright citrine gemstones and cute flower charms.
Step By Step Instructions
1. Firstly set the faceted stone in the wraptite link setting, these are really simple to set and don't require any tools other than a pair of round nose pliers. You can see step by step photos of how to set the stone here.
Remember to ensure that you don't over squeeze the loops when tightening the setting as you need enough room to attach the earwire and charm. A good tip to avoid this is to put a piece of wire (around 0.8mm) in the loop either side of the setting before you squeeze to tighten it with your pliers.
2. Use snipe nose pliers to twist open the loop of the flower charm if it isn't already, then attach the loop of the wraptite setting, ensuring the faceted stone's pointed bottom is facing behind. Then twist the charm's loop closed to secure.
3. Next twist open the loop of the earwire and attach the other loop of the wraptite setting, twist closed to secure.
4. Repeat the previous steps for the other earrings and the design is complete!
