DIY: Cherry Quartz Geode Necklace

DIY Geode Necklace

Jewelry making has become a new passion of mine. I love creating necklaces or bracelets as gifts. The majority of my gift giving occurs through Amazon.com, so making a present for someone is a nice change.

Stepping into a Beadworks store is a serene experience, wandering around a shop filled with pretty sparkly crystals as I contemplate color choices and wait to see if something stands out. This necklace I made for my mother, it’s a mixture of quartz and druzy crystals. I strung the necklace and then a Beadworks member of staff finished the necklace by adding the clasp.

The Supplies

– Bead stringing wire (I used 0.38mm, it cost $9.50 for 30ft)
– Gold wire (no. 32 – $5.25)
– Extra thin gold wire
– 1x pink dotted quartz ($6.35)
– 8x pink pearls ($0.15 x 8)
– 2x starmise druzy ($0.92 x 2)
– Roughly 160 pieces of cherry quartz
– Golden flower piece ($1.00)
– Tape

Onto the stringing wire I add eight pieces of the cherry quartz, then one pearl. Repeat this process five times, and on the fifth occasion place a piece of the starmise instead of the pearl.

Next add the four pieces of the cherry quartz and then the center piece which is the golden lotus flower. Next I mirrored the other side of the necklace and repeated the sequence.

Next, I add the pink dotted quartz piece onto the gold flower. I used a very thin gold wire which I looped around repeatedly until it felt secure.

The final stage Beadworks completed for me. I placed tape over the ends of the wire so that the beads stayed in place. They charged me $5 + cost of the clasp pieces.

Next time I make one of these, I will be adding the clasp myself!
