Place a crystal stone in a setting, and use nylon-jaw pliers to press each prong part-way down on the stone. Make sure stone is centered, then go back around and press each prong down more securely. If necessary, burnish each prong down smooth with a burnishing tool (the back end of a standard Sharpie works great).
Use the loop at the bottom of the ear wire, to add charm. For best way to open and close loops, see Jump Ring Hint in Jewelry Basics 101 (PDF)
