Quartz Crystal Earrings DIY July 17 2014, 2 Comments

These earrings are so pretty and really easy to make! Here is what you need:

 

1. Antique copper chain

2. Antique copper head pins (although only 2 are pictured, I used 4)

3. Florentine Gold Liquid Leaf and brush to apply

4. Raw Quartz Crystals, side drilled (6)

5. Jewelry tools

 

 

 

 

STEP 1

Paint the liquid leaf to the top part of your quartz. (I found out you need to wash the brush right away or it will get ruined!) Let dry

 

STEP 2

Once they are dried, slip three quartz on each eye pin wire, cut the excess and make a loop at the end 

 

STEP 3

Cut 3 inches of chain for each earring. With the pliers open the loop on each end to slip the chain in

 

STEP 4

Use a ring mandrel or something circular to shape two eye pins into ear wires

 

STEP 5 

With the jewelry tool, open the loop on the ear wire and slip a link of the chain, you may need to try a few times to get it exactly in the middle so it looks level.

 

And you are done!
