MADE: Wrapped quartz stud earrings

photo-5_fotor

I bought a few little pieces of quartz at a market in Sydney a couple of years ago at some low prices and have always wanted to make some accessories with them. Well, being the person that I am, I have only just put my arse down to making something from those lovely little pieces of rock a couple of weeks ago.

I haven’t made anything “modern” or done any DIY for a while, so it’s quite a refreshing project!

Steps:

1. Glue quartz pieces to ear post

2. Wrap wire around the centre haphazardly.. or carefully, whichever works better for you. Tuck the end of the wire in or twist it around the ear post

3. Wear them and be fabulous!

Have fun!

  1. Hey Gwen! This is an awesome DIY. I imagine it could also be cool to spray paint the squartz a nice metallic gold color. …Anyhow, when you get the chance, check you my latest DIY project: http://youtu.be/uhRB1PmO61A and let me know what you think. All the best, Shania. -Www.LovemeyeArt.Com
