This kind of work when you are gluing stone setting on a metal base is a simple way to make very beautiful jewelry items like rings, bracelets, pendants, earrings, hair accessories and many more.
Here you can find more plain jewelry bases that can be the base for kind this work, and more shape of stone settings to use.
Before you start embedding the crystals and putting the glue on the metal base, take the time to play with the stone settings as they are and placing them on the metal bases to find out in which way the final piece would look more beautiful.
STEP 1: Embedding the crystals
Once you have decided on which stone setting to use, and the crystal colors that would be right for that piece, use the prong pusher to bend the metal prongs on the crystals so they can’t move.
STEP 2: Applying the glue on the metal base
The E6000 glue for jewelry making is a really good one for this kind of work.
The best way to make the stone settings stick strongly to the base is the apply the glue on the surface, but also between the stone settings so they also hold each other.
When you are working in a ring or a bangle bracelet, you will need to work one small area and let it dry before you keep one gluing stone setting or else they will slide with the glue from where you placed them.
Have fun creating with stone settings like that, because once you have tried it, you will see how simple it is to create a really beautiful jewelry piece that is unique to you!
