More Earrings

f...and while I like the ready to ship items these are NOT and easy thing to make!

When setting stones in rings I can place the ring shank into the holder and have a tight grip so that I can really muscle the bezel tight around the stone. With earrings....nothing, nada, zip, zilch. I just have to hold these tiny little things and work and work and work the metal. The muscles in my thumb and fingers cramp, hands shake and the skin of my thumb really gets sore!

But, I think the results are worth it.


  1. Ahhh, worth the work. They are wonderful!

  2. I definitely agree, worth the work. :)

  3. AMY! I just found your blog!! I love your jewelry! I just looked at your Etsy site. Why have I not known about this?!?
