When we say quartz we imagine a clear rough crystal, and that is partially true. Quartz refers to many varieties of minerals, several of which are semi-precious gem stones. Men has been using quartz since prehistoric times and although its uses and importance has changed across the centuries, today it is mostly used for jewelry making. Colorless and with interesting shape, quartz gives lightness to the jewelry that by all accounts looks and feels heavy. Also, if you are interested in the mystical arts, it is believed that quartz possesses magical healing properties and wards against negative energy. So, if you wish to have an elegant, yet earthy jewelry, make yourself some quartz pieces with the help from our top 10 jewelry tutorials.
These are by far the easiest earrings you’ll ever make that are suited for any occasion. Just dip the stone in metallic paint, glue it to some earrings studs and you’re done.
