Hi, this is Julie with and today I want to show you how to use these new Nunn Design Prong Settings for Chatons and Make a Pair of Earrings so what you're going to need is a prong setting and what't great about these is they have a loop on each end which will allow you to make an earring such as this They have four prongs and a nice deep well and I have this pretty czech glass bead pointed back chaton which is perfectly fitted for the setting just drop it in there. You might have to move it around a little bit that's a really nice snug fit. You can see that it fits nice and flush in there and then what we need to do is we need to close up the prongs there's a lot of different tools you can use. Some people actually like to use their pliers like the flat part of it I prepare to use a popsicle stick just because it's a little bit gentler on the stone. I don't worry so much about cracking the glass so I'm going to just take my tool, if you have a burnishing tool that would work well as well holding my glass chaton in place and holding the back of the setting as well so I have a good grip sandwiching them in there take my tool and I'm going to press the prong down carefully work it go from all sides and press you can see we're getting there. They're not fully press down but they're all curving inward and I wanted to go all the way around, start to press them down and then I want to go back and finish pressing them all the way down and curve them up and around chaton that one id now flats you can even take your tool or something like this popsicle stick and press and push at the same time take a look at it. They all look pretty good. This one can go down a little bit more just slow and steady. You don't want to crack the glass now that chaton is in there it's not gonna go anywhere and it looks very professional and polished and if you've seen so of my past videos you know I'd like to show you how to use this in a practical way. I want to show you really quickly turn this into an earring. I have a pretty silver plated key charm the little oval jump ring and a silver plated earring hook open up my jump ring slip it onto the loop at the top of the charm slip it onto one of the loops on the setting close that something back up open the bottom loop of the earring hook the same way you open a jump ring, just twist it out put this on facing forward close that loop back up and we have a very pretty and very quick, very easy yet very elegant and polished pair of earrings Again these are the new prong settings by Nunn design. We just put a pretty czech glass pointed back chaton in there and we've added a charm, added an earring hook and suddenly have a really lovely pair of earrings
