Jewelry Ideas Using Quartz
I had the idea to make this pendant as the old counting frame design offers lots of possibilities to personalize a piece of jewelry. The gemstones can be chosen to make the most out of the color combination or emphasize a single color but also to display birthstones of a family or group. It’s a […]
I wanted to make a necklace for winter (I am in Australia), a substantial piece that can hold its own over bulky jumpers. This scarf necklace is made with 14 strands of glass seed beads, glass bugle beads and rose quartz beads, strung onto professional nylon beading thread. To keep the strands together, I made […]
I made this necklace using rose quartz round beads, faceted donut shaped cherry quartz beads, and cultured freshwater pearls. Toggle clasp is sterling silver. The beautiful faceted rose quartz pendant is 1 1/8″ in length. Necklace is strung on 49 strand .019 softflex beading wire. Necklace is 19″ in length.
My “I love you” earrings are inspired by love. A great pair of earrings made of natural coral quartz briolettes, wire wrapped in sterling silver. To make these, first gather two gemstone beads, some sterling silver 20 gauge dead soft wire, and two ear wires. Next, make a loop in the wire and start wrapping […]
This necklace has four strands. I used four large blue glitter quartz beads for the focal points, and surrounded them with small round blue quartz beads. The rest of the necklace is a mix of black onyx multi faceted beads and gray seed beads. I saw these beads at the bead store and the vision […]
These earrings are little replicas of lanterns that you can stick into the ground to illuminate your swimming pool or just a garden path. I hand formed thick copper wire, hammered, filed and polished it and then attached a sharply faceted oval rock quartz framed by little copper beads. Just a little bit different.
For this 3-strand necklace I started with the faceted oval 10x14mm blue opal stones and added cube-shaped blue opals with light turquoise and darker foiled turquoise colored seed beads. The three strands are 18 1/2″, 20 1/2″ and 21″ in length (including the clasp). The clasp is a metal 3-strand hook with little flowers for […]
This was my very first attempt at hand knotting beads. I was so nervous but had to try it. I loved the beautiful contrast that the color salmon has against turquoise. So, with this piece, I hand knotted polished round volcano cherry quartz agate & a stabilized oval turquoise bead on white nylon/silk thread for […]
A beautiful goddess in pinks and copper. I embroidered her with copper iris colored glass beads, with bits and pieces from other jewelry parts for her crown which has a fabric pink flower rosette and mother of pearl. Inside is black felt and back is black leather. The same coordinating beads around the edges. Pink […]
This set consists of faceted smoky quartz stones that are suspended between links of 14kt gold filled flat cable chain. This set was inspired by the warm colors associated with the fall season. The necklace is secured with a 14kt gold filled lobster claw clasp, and the earrings are set on 14kt gold filled round […]
This necklace features 3 strands of silver glass seed beads that space a random pattern of turquoise briolettes, turquoise 4mm rounds, and quartz ovals. The clasp is a sterling silver toggle with delicate details. I was inspired by the briolettes when they were still on the strands that I bought them on and they were […]
Blue and green stones helped me create the name of this piece. I strung each bead section onto brass wire and did a simple loop to close each end. Each beaded wire section was attached to brass jump-rings. The focal is the brass filigree ring that I attached to the bracelet by wrapping both sides […]
Felicity is made of four strands of magnetic hematite beads, hematite chips, snowflake obsidian chips, moonstone chips, wire wrapped clear quartz beads, and two types of metal beads. All of these are strung and wrapped together to create Felicity. I wanted a piece that was chic, and embodied the icy, winter atmosphere.
This piece is made with antique brass, amazonite, smoky quartz and pearls. Blue and brown make a nice color combo, and amazonite and smoky quartz are two of my favorite gemstones, so I figured the two stones would look great in a necklace with a little bit of white thrown in somewhere. I took a […]
I often get requests for birthday bracelets. I use the stones that correspond to the birth month and the individuals astrological sign. This piece was inspired by my girlfriends mother “Goldie” who is a lovely, lively, bubbly and happy go lucky lady! I used 24 gauge silver wire to string smokey quartz beads and a […]
Created with rose quartz, pink czech glass, pink and gold lampwork, crystal, gold and a stunning circular strawberry quartz pendant. The necklace measures 16 and one half inches and the pendant is 1 and one half inches in diameter. I used a gold toggle clasp to finish it.
This pendant definitely represents the dark side – of copper that is. It has been oxidized to a near black color and then polished with 0000 steel wool and afterward tumbled to have the copper shimmer through and at the same time increase strength and shine. The top gemstone is a natural aquamarine, the gemstones […]
