Make your own Rose Quartz Jewelry
I love rose quartz. It symbolizes love and romance. I wear it to remind myself of the one I love. And I wore it to attract the one I love (which seemed to have worked). It is a light pink, naturally occurring stone, and it's very beautiful. I buy ready-made rose quartz beads from Joann's Fabric and Crafts, Michael's, and Firemountaingems.com. You can also place rose quartz rocks near your bed to attract a romantic partner. You can buy these from many rock and gem web sites online.
Rose Quartz Necklaces
Leather String Necklaces
Metal Hoop Necklaces
I have also purchased round metal hoop necklaces at Michael's and strung a rose quartz heart bead onto it along with other decorative beads. These are very stylish and look more dressy. Hearts are my favorite shape of rose quartz beads because they remind me the most of love.
If you like hemp jewelry, which I do, you can weave up a hemp necklace with rose quartz beads throughout or 1 large heart as the center pendant. This is how I made my first rose quartz jewelry. Hemp Bracelets Kit and Book can get you started easily on making hemp jewelry.
These types of necklaces require a little extra work. You'll need a nice necklace-size chain, ranging from about 15 to 24 inches, depending on the length you prefer. You'll also need a lobster claw clasp, jump rings, and head pins. A flat nose and round nose pliers as well as a wire cutter are tools that make jewelry making so much easier. So you might want to get those if you don't already have them.
And that's it. You have your rose quartz chain necklace! Once you learn the basics, you can get more creative and string chains in between beads to make a fancier pendant as I did in my necklace that I made below.
Rose Quartz Bracelets
Making rose quartz bracelets is also very simple. Many craft stores carry thicker metal jewelry chains in silver or gold colors. Buy about 7-1/2 inches or so, depending on the size of your wrist. You'll also need to pick up some head pins and a toggle clasp. The toggle clasp can easily be attached to the chain by opening up the ring on the clasp with pliers, hooking it onto the chain, and closing the ring back up with the pliers. Then put the head pin through a rose quartz bead, and using flat nose or round-tip pliers, trim the head pin, bend it into a circle and slip it through the chain. Do this a few times around the chain, and you have yourself a rose quartz charm bracelet.
Beaded bracelets take a little more work but can be very unique. Here are the instructions on how to make them:
Rose Quartz Earrings
I think these earrings are one of the easiest pieces of jewelry to make!
Gee... that was easy
