DIY Gemstone Jewelry

Quartz Ring

I was inspired to make these jewelry pieces by a ring I bought off the side of the road in Hawaii last year.  The ring was literally a piece of wire that was wrapped in the shape of a ring with a simple but beautiful design in the front.   I thought it was so simple yet unique and was totally something I could make.

Gemstones bring many different types of positive energy into our lives.  They also make a nice gift to give someone and why not turn a simple gemstone into a pretty piece of jewelry to give a friend.
