One of the challenges of these simple earrings is the bezels. They are a prefab product I picked up very early in my metalsmithing carreer. I just want to use them up, rather than melting them down. But they are an odd shape (to me) and it is sometimes hard to get them closed over the stone. They are made by forming the cup shape into a flat piece of metal with a press.
I have a few more pairs laid out and I'll keep working at them. I am still trying to figure out whether the problem is with me or the bezels. Probably, they will get less and less simple as I work thougheach pair.
Look at me, working on a simple project to solve a problem. Normally I drive myself mad with the most complex thing I can imagine! Maybe I really am learning.
