Monday Make :: Quad Quartz Necklace

Make your own DIY Quad Quartz Necklace in about 15 minutes. This really is a quick and easy project! Just click the image for printable PDF instructions.

Quartz is one of my favorite jewelry components these days. All of those natural facets and beautiful finishes are amazing. Just look at all of the different finishes you can choose from! All of these quartz points begged to be turned into something wearable, and I wanted to figure out a way to create a necklace that used them horizontally instead of vertically. (Denise Yezbak Moore’s absolutely gorgeous Icicle Necklace is a great example of the way the points in quartz necklaces are often aligned.). Enter the Quad Quartz Necklace, which is simple to make and has a fun, earthy vibe. It’s the perfect finishing touch for your boho chic summer maxi dress.

Bead Gallery quartz featured on Beads, Baubles & Jewels television show!

These are a few of the projects that made it onto the show. Erin Strother made the beautiful white leather necklace at the back right as well as the one just barely cut off at the far right; the gorgeous green pieces and the one to the back left are by Denise Yezbak Moore, and I made the ones on the small black squares especially for the show.

A few weeks ago when taping segments for Beads, Baubles & Jewels I had a chance to tape a segment all about quartz, which included information on where it comes from to how all of the fabulous coatings are applied.

All the techniques you need to know to make this necklace for yourself are making a loop and opening a jump ring. And if you want to add a wrapped loop above the pendant or take out the clasp, it’s all good. The chain is long enough to fit over your head.

Let’s get this Monday Make started!

You’ll need:

  • Bead Gallery® quartz points (various colors are available)
  • Bead Gallery 3x4m rondelles
  • gold chain
  • head pin
  • eye pin
  • jump rings
  • clasp
  • round-nose pliers
  • chain-nose pliers
  • wire nippers
