Designer Tips

  • Place a crystal stone into the setting. Use a burnishing tool to gently press the bezel down on all sides of the crystal.
  • Use the burnisher to smooth all sides of the bezel evenly up and over over the stone.
  • Repeat with other crystal cushion stones.
  • Use pliers to open the loop on an ear wire, and attach to the top of the setting. (See Jump Ring Hint in Jewelry Basics 101 (PDF) for best way to open and close a loop.)
