Even though I rarely wear jewelry, I still love a beautiful piece. When you wear pieces so rarely, it becomes something special that you do for yourself. Even adding a simple statement necklace to jeans and tee-shirt can boost your self esteem quickly and easily.
That’s why I think all moms should learn to make their own jewelry. Simple designs are best when you’re just starting out. Luckily, that’s exactly what this DIY druzy jewelry set is. There’s no complicated measuring or creations. Simple thread and glue and you’re done.
Before you get started with jewelry making, you need to invest in a small tool set. I love and use this one from Bead Landing. It’s inexpensive but has everything you need to get started. Keep your tools together in a small bag or plastic box so that they don’t get mixed up with your other tools. I recommend using your jewelry tools only for creating, not on any household project or improvements.
DIY Druzy Jewelry Set Materials
- Sedona Natural Stone Beads
- 2 Blank Earring Posts
- Silver Wire (Make sure it is a small enough gauge to fit through your bead holes)
- Jewelry Tools
- Silver Jump Ring
- Silver Chain
First, open and un-string your natural stone beads.
Then choose two of the smallest natural stone beads and glue them to the earring posts with E6000. The stones are heavy. That is why you want the smallest ones in the set otherwise the earrings may be too heavy.
Set the earrings aside to dry for at least 24 hours. Make sure they are stable during drying so that the beads don’t slide off.
- I like to use a small piece of foam and poke the earrings into it during drying. This keeps them stabilized and safe while drying.
Next, cut a small length of wire and thread it through the hole in a third natural stone bead. The size of this one isn’t important. Choose the largest for a statement pendant or another small one for a daintier jewelry set.
Then wrap the wire around itself as pictured to create an attachment for your jump ring. If there is any excess, trim it off with the wire cutters in your jewelry tool set.
Open your jump ring with pliers from your jewelry tool set.
Next, attach the jump ring to the wrapped wire on your bead with flat nose pliers.
Lastly, slide your created pendant onto your silver chain and enjoy!
This DIY druzy jewelry set is absolutely beautiful! What’s even better is that it’s the perfect jewelry set for beginners to make. A few tools is all you need to get started and, more importantly, it’s a self care 2-fold. That’s pretty incredible when you think about it. So get ready to rock your next outing in style (even if it’s just to the grocery store).
