How To Make Crystal Jewelry

Equipment

To make this piece of personalized jewelry, all you will need is:

  • A crystal: continue reading for advice on how to select the perfect crystal.
  • Wire: we recommend using 24-gauge wire, as this is ideal for homemade jewelry. Use whatever color wire you want. 
  • Wire cutters: these hand-held cutters are useful tools in jewelry making. 
  • Safety equipment: to keep yourself safe, we recommend wearing protective equipment. This includes safety goggles, which will protect your eyes from debris.
  • Pliers: this will keep your jewelry in place.
  • A necklace chain: we recommend using a necklace chain that is the same color as the wire that you’re using.

Instructions

  1. Firstly, cut two separate pieces of wire using the wire cutters. The pieces of wire should be the same length, measuring approximately 5 inches. The larger your crystal, the longer these wires will need to be.
  2. Twist these wires together at the center. The wires need to wrap around each other, as opposed to merely twisting one wire while the other remains straight. Using your fingers, you should stabilize the intersection to ensure that this twist is successful. You don’t need to achieve perfection, as a less perfect twist will give the jewelry a more homemade vibe.
  3. Now it’s time to add the crystal to this necklace. Place the crystal up against the twisted section of the wire. Position it between the two lines of wire.
  4. Now that the crystal is in position, twist the two pieces of wire that are at the back of the crystal. If you have thin fingers, this step will likely be easy. If not, you may struggle, as this task requires nimble fingers! This will create a miniature basket for the crystal.
  5. Continue twisting the wires until the intersection is the same size as the original intersection. Make certain that these twists are tight, as this will keep the crystal protected. 
  6. Using the leftover wire, create a hoop atop the crystal by twisting them. This will act as a way of attaching the crystal to the necklace chain. If there is any leftover wire sticking out, cut it using the cutters. Otherwise, this wire could be a health hazard. Not to mention, this will ensure that your pendant looks nice.
  7. Attach the necklace chain to this wire halo. Try on this chain to ensure that it fits nicely. With any luck, your beautiful new crystal necklace will look lovely!

How Do You Choose The Right Crystal?

How To Make Crystal Jewelry

Picking the perfect crystal for this task can be difficult, but it is nonetheless essential to carefully consider the options. After all, each crystal works differently.

Therefore, you may not get the desired effect if you make the wrong choice. Here are the most important factors to think about:

The Effect

Essentially, you should think about what you want this crystal to do for you. Do you want it to reduce stress? Or do you want to be a more loving person? Whatever the case, research the effects of different crystals so that you can identify one that’s relevant to you.

For example, rose quartz is a crystal associated with love and emotion. Meanwhile, ruby is beneficial for improving prosperity and enhancing vitality. So remember to do your homework to find the best crystal.

The Aesthetic

Of course, you may also want to consider the aesthetic of the crystal. Most people don’t want to wear crystal jewelry if it looks bad and clashes with their outfits. 

Therefore, you should try to find a crystal that matches your aesthetic. For instance, is there a color that you wear frequently? If so, you may want to utilize a crystal that complements this color.

If you are making this crystal necklace for another person, you should think about their favorite colors and what shades suit them.

The Cost

Finally, price is another important consideration. Crystals can be quite costly, especially if you choose to opt for diamond, musgravite, ruby, or sapphire. If you shop around (see also ‘9 Beautiful Wholesale Crystals‘), you may be lucky enough to find these crystals at low prices.

To save yourself money, it may be best to choose a more common crystal. Some of the more budget-friendly crystal varieties include jasper, rose quartz, citrine, clear quartz, and amethyst. Despite their low prices, these crystals can still be incredibly beneficial.
