Hi, this is Kat with and easy tool and this is going to help you obviously do those prongs and will help you create very simple quick and easy earrings so before I get into that I just want to show you some of the variety of some of these settings that we have up here so many of these come in gold and silver but some of them are really unique so this one here is kind of cool it has a nice little loop at the bottom so that you can actually put a crystal in there and then attach something else to the bottom then we have just some really standard ones which are really lovely and these are going to be great for Bridal or prom let's say you want to try to coordinate some colors we have some of the gold ones here that have those nice little crystals on the outside already for you so you can just coordinator color and pop it in then we have some cool shapes so I have some teardrops here which I'm going to show you in just a minute and then we also have some ones that already have a little crystal on top so you just need to again just coordinate your favorite color below and these all come with their little wing back earring posts and finishing here so you can see that so we have the gold and then we also have the rhodium up here so this is gonna be a nice sort of striking dark silver which is gonna look great against that crystal you can just sort of see how it looks against the crystal in this particular piece right here but each of these listings will tell you exactly the size stone that you're looking for to match your finding so it's really nice and easy so when you head over to and you search for your setting it'll tell you the exact stone that you're looking forward to match so I have a couple of examples of those teardrops here so you can just really see on this beautiful scarlet color just how that gold really just comes in and just grabs on and really makes it look just just so fun and so glamorous I love this this is perfect again for any special occasion where you're trying to match an outfit and you just want a nice little Sourav ski pop so here's a smaller you can see that this is the rhodium on that amethyst crystal and again in that beautiful teardrop shape so today I'm gonna be using the rhodium here and this fits a 12 millimeter cushion stone so you can just kind of see it from all angles and this post sits in the center of this one and this is the majestic blue cushion stone and then I have my pusher now I've left off my ear nuts here just so that I can easily grip the back but you're welcome to put them on if you want before you place your crystal in there it's kind of whatever you decide all right so very simply here all I'm gonna do is I'm gonna just kind of hold it in my hand and I'm gonna get my cushion stone and just place it in the center there now what I'm gonna do is I'm going to just kind of place my thumb right on top there because I want to get a good grip and I don't want it to slip around there so what I'm gonna do is I'm going to come in with my pusher and you can kind of put it in like the palm of your hand here and just sort of hold it and then all you're gonna do is you're just gonna kind of roll it in so we just want to kind of roll it over that prong and just push that down just like so and then what we're gonna do is we're gonna go across the way here so I'm just gonna flip it in my hand and do it again and just kind of roll it down and then now we're just gonna rotate and we're gonna get those other two prongs and just very easily we're just gonna roll it down and move it across and roll it down and that's how easy it is so I'm gonna show you one more time to do my second one here and again I know we're putting our thumb in there you can just kind of wipe off your fingerprints afterwards but it really does help to hold the stone sort of in place there so again just very gently and you don't want to shove it too hard because you don't want to scratch your crystal so you just kind of come from the outside and just roll it down and then again go all the way across and just roll it down and now just keep rotating roll it down it doesn't take a lot of pressure just take a little bit but just be gentle with it and roll it down so now we have both of our earrings set and we are all finished and ready to go so it creates a beautiful look using the Gaeta settings and these are Swarovski crystals and they just fit so nicely and so lovely in there this is just such a beautiful piece just to add a nice beautiful crystal pop I hope you enjoyed this video you can find all of these supplies and see even more tutorial videos by heading over to and hey if you're new here be sure to hit that subscribe button below to get all the latest from beadaholique
