Ruby Snaptite Earstuds

Ruby Snaptite Earstuds

This jewellery making project couldn't be easier! Our sterling silver snaptite earstud settings are so easy to seta and perfect for beginners, making them so popular.

Step by step instructions

Place the faceted ruby stone face down (flat side down) onto a firm surface such as a magazine placed on your work surface.

Place the mount over the stone and apply gentle pressure to 'click' the stone into place. 

(Star shaped snaptite settings are slightly trickier to set, so you may find a stone holder helps. The claws should sit on the points of the star).

Check that the claws are firmly in place - it may be necessary to gently adjust the claws to ensure a secure fit. 

Recommended tools for this project

Customise your kit

Make the design your own by choosing your favourite faceted stones to use with the snaptite settings.
