You Won’t Believe How Easy It Is to Make This Quartz Necklace

Our love for gems and druzies is burning strong these days, so we thought: What better addition to our DIY jewelry collection than this awesome quartz pendant necklace! This seriously multi-purpose statement piece is already our #1 pick for work, weddings and weekend brunch.

We put together a selection of quartz crystal beads, brass beads and findings into our Quartz Necklace Kit, available in the B+C Shop. Grab one for yourself and follow the steps below to put it all together!

Materials:

– quartz beads

– jewelry wire

– curved brass beads

– jewelry chain

– jump rings

– lobster clasp

– 2-in-1 plier/cutter

(or get everything HERE in our kit!)

Instructions:

1. Cut a 6-inch piece of jewelry wire using your plier/cutter and twist one end around a jump ring.

2. String on your quartz beads with the longest beads in the middle and the shortest at the sides.

3. Twist the loose end of your wire around another jump ring, leaving a bit of room for the beads to move around on the wire.

4. Repeat this process for two curved brass beads, stringing them onto wire with jump rings on the ends.

5. Open up your jump rings using your pliers, attach to your jewelry chain and close back up.

6. Attach both curved brass beads higher up on the chain, using the same process as the last step.

7. Cut your chain in half at the top using your plier/cutter. Trim to a shorter length if you wish or leave the chain long for a low pendant.

8. Attach a jump ring to one end of your chain and a jump ring and lobster clasp to the other end.

Grab all the materials in our kit (including everything pictured above) and let’s test out those jewelry-making skills!

First off, cut a six-inch piece of jewelry wire using your plier/cutter.

Then loop one end around a jump ring and twist it around itself a few times to secure.

String your quartz beads onto the wire, with the longest beads in the middle and the shortest at the sides.

To close, twist the loose end of your wire around another jump ring, leaving a bit of room for the beads to move around and for the wire to curve.

Repeat this process for two curved brass beads, stringing them onto the wire with jump rings at the sides.

Open up your jump rings using your pliers, attach to the ends of your jewelry chain and close the jump rings back up.

Attach both curved brass beads higher up on the chain, using the same process as the previous step.

Cut your chain in half at the top using your plier/cutter. Trim to a shorter length if you wish or leave the chain long for a low pendant.

Attach a jump ring to one end of your chain and a jump ring and lobster clasp to the other end.

Take a look at your newfound jewelry-making skills!

Wear your new quartz necklace over a high-neck blouse or sweater for work, a slouchy tee for sunday brunch or a shift dress for dinner and drinks.
