What's the best/easiest glue to use in making earring's (gluing posts to jewels/charms)? I'd like something that you don't have to mix & has low fumes as I have serious asthma & alot of chemical smells set it off.

I don't know, that's a hard one for sure. The two best solutions are both in the bad categories for you. I like to use super glue and 5 minuet epoxy if I using a glue and cement in jewelry. Maybe someone else has a suggestion. I really use soldering most of the time unless I using glue or cement as an adjunct method to secure a cabochon in place.

I've used Beacon's GemTac and DazzleTac for many projects through the years; they're made for use with casual jewelry, so maybe they will safely adhere what you're trying to glue. They're both inexpensive and available from craft stores. It's worth a try! Good luck!
