This is a really simple project that you will have finished and ready to wear in minutes, thanks to our fast drying glue.
No prior jewellery making experience is needed and you don't need any specialist tools.
Check the stones fit in the settings (a handy way to do this without the stone getting stuck is to lay a piece of dental floss or cotton under the stone first).
They will most likely be fine but should you find the stone is fractionally too larger you can smooth open the setting a little using a burnisher or similar tool, in most instances, there will be no need to do this.
Slightly roughen the flat inside part of the earring setting using a sanding sheet - this will give the glue something to adhere too and ensure the glue sticks securely.
Prepare the glue by mixing equal amounts of the resin and hardener (you can do this on a scrap piece of cardboard or plastic). Once mixed, the glue sets in 5 minutes, so ensure you set the stones straight away.
We suggest supporting your earring posts in a piece of blue tack on your desk while glueing the stones in place.
Use a fine point such as a cocktail stick to dab a little glue onto the flat pad of the earstud and then gently place the cabochons in the setting.
Leave to dry until the glue is fully set and then they're ready to wear!
