Here are eight really quick and very, very easy jewelry making projects.  The only tools required are some fingers, thumbs and occasionally a pair of bent chain nose pliers.  If it happens that all your fingers are thumbs, don't give up.  A few of these projects are even suitable for someone who is all thumbs. 

1.  10 Minute Post Earring using Snap Fit Settings.  Choose any gemstone or CZ and select a pair of post findings that support the same diameter gemstone.  (If you have an 8mm gemstone, choose an ear post finding that supports 8mm.)  The easiest way to set these stones is to place them upside down on a cutting board and use a pair of chain nose pliers to help push the finding onto the stone as shown in the center, below.  Use an ear clutch to finish the project.  Please select here to view our video on how to make these gemstone snap-fit earrings.

Finished Lever Back Gemstone Earrings Jewelry Making Project2.  10 Minute Lever Back Earrings Using Snap Fit Settings.  These earrings are as easy to make as the post earrings, but don't require the pliers.  Place the snap fit portion of the lever back finding over your gemstone, with the gemstone upside down on a cutting board.  Push the finding onto the gemstone with you fingers.  Continue pushing until the stone snaps into place on all sides.  Now you are ready to wear your lever back gemstone earrings.  Please select here to view our video on how to make these gemstone lever back snap fit earrings. 

Please note that very rarely, the prongs in a snap type setting can be bent during shipping.  This doesn't happen often, but it has happened.  If this happens, in almost all cases, the prongs can be easily bent back into shape.  If you have a pair of chain nose pliers, this is the preferred tool to use to straighten the prongs.  If you don't have pliers, your fingers will work.
