How Do I Make Earrings?

I purchased black stones in Seattle to make a pair of earrings (which I know absolutely NOTHING about). I've got the earring stud and backing but what glue do I use?

Carolyn, Could you maybe find out at Hobby

Lobby? I hope you have one of these stores

in your town. I love shopping there. If not I'll

bet a Hobby store could tell you. J. B.

The last couple times I went to the library they had several new books on jewelry making. If your library doesn't have any books about jewelry making go to a bookstore(just read the part you need, you don't have to buy it!).

The best glue I have ever used for jewelry is called E6000. It's in a metal tube, and it's fantastic. You can get it at most craft stores.

YES, E-6000 works great for jewelry & many other things including broken pottery too!

Thanks for this question. I have an old bracelet from which two stones have fallen off, and I didn't have any idea of what type of glue to buy to glue them back on. I was getting ready to write in, but you beat me to it!

I also use E6000 for my bead and lapidary projects. Strong stuff, but you need a little patience for it to set up. 5 minute epoxy works great, too, and fast!
