How do you attach crystals to jewelry?
Crystals with foil backing can be attached to jewelry with a #prong setting or a glue setting. A prong setting features little metal claws that hold a stone in place, this is the same technique used in fine #jewelry. Once the #crystal is set in place the claws are pushed inwards with a tool to lock it in position. Prong settings are more labor intensive and usually denote a higher product quality. #E6000 and #Loctite Glass Glue are popular glue for crystals as they leave a transparent finish. Translucent crystals or glass without foil backing can only be set using a prong setting.
Our #Babe #Peony Brooch is handcrafted by our artisan in a prong setting. An ideal #gift for any occasion.
