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 stunning tanzanite faceted stones but you can choose any faceted stones you like!
Tanzanite is a rare gemstone, only mined in Tanzania in the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro! This stone is growing in popularity and we're not surprised due to its unique colouring.
Place the faceted tanzanite stones 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.
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!
Stone holder - perfect for gripping small stones
Pusher - to ensure the claws are secure around the stone
Make the design your own by choosing your favourite faceted stones to use with the snaptite settings.
