rose quartz necklace

Pair a variety of shapes and sizes of rose quartz semi-precious stones to design an eye-catching necklace.
Step 1

First, cut a 30" [76.2 cm] length of stringing wire.

Step 2

Fold the wire in half, slide a closed jump ring onto the wire and push it up to the fold. Now, slide on a silver crimp tube. Use your pliers to squeeze the crimp closed.

Step 3

Hold both wires together and thread ten round stones, a metal bead, a large nugget stone and another metal bead. Separate the wires and add about 2" [5.1 cm] of chip stones to each. Hold them together again and slide on a metal bead.

Step 4

Add a large rose quartz stone, a metal bead, a large rose quartz stone, a metal bead and another a large rose quartz stone.

Step 5

Repeat Step 3 in reverse.

Step 6

Slide both wires through the crimp tube, through another closed jump ring and back through the crimp tube. Thread the wires through a few round stones and pull taut. Crimp the tube with your pliers and trim any excess wire.
TIP: For additional hold, add a dab of glue inside the tube before you crimp.
