Quick and Easy DIY Birthstone Gift Sets

April 27, 2016

Use birthstone colors to make a quick and easy gift set for your mom, daughter or sister, or it can be a sweet no-fuss bridesmaid gift in your bridal colors. The project I selected is in Peridot (August’s Birthstone) and another example in Gold Patina, a popular new color and finish from Swarovski.

Suggested Supplies:

1 each Gold plated pinch bail (Prong Bail), 7mm, No Loop

1 each Gold plated Cobra chain necklace, 18″

1 each Heart Pendant, 14mm, Peridot

2 each Heart Pendant, 10mm, Peridot

2 each Gold plated pinch bail (Prong Bail), 4mm, Loop

2 each Gold Plated Leverback Ear Wire, Fleur-de-lis

Nylon Jaw, Flat-Nose Pliers

Using your nylon jaw pliers take one of your pinch bails (with the loop) and pinch the bail into the hole of one of your 10mm crystals.

3

Repeat the same process for your 2nd crystal. The Nylon jaw pliers will help you get the bail closed without scratching your bail and crystal.

2

Next you will open the loops of your lever-back earrings and attach your crystal. Open these loops the same way you would a jump ring.

Now take your no loop pinch bail and slip it onto your chain.

1

Using your nylon jaw pliers, pinch the bail onto your 14mm crystal.
