Maniamania Inspired Rough-cut Crystal Necklace

This one is incredibly easy to make, and something you can wear every day. I wear mine all the time.

ManiaMania---Materials

Materials:  7 6mm Jump Rings, 5 large (12mm x 16mm) end caps, about 16-18″ brass curb chain

Pliers, E6000 Glue, Lobster Clasp, 5 large rough cut quartz crystals

A word about the crystals…  get the largest size – 1″+.  I bought the 2lb bag and many of the crystals were not the right size, but within the bag there were several suitable options.

ManiaMania-Necklace1

Start by loading up an end cap with glue.  Seriously… use a lot of glue.

ManiaMania-Necklace2

Stuff a crystal into the end cap.

ManiaMania-Necklace3

Repeat 5x, and allow to dry (preferably overnight.)

ManiaMania-Necklace4

Attach a jump ring to the top of each pendant.

ManiaMania-Necklace5

Attach your pendants to the chain.  I spaced them out, one pendant every 5 links.

    ManiaMania-Necklace7

Attach a clasp to one end and a large jump ring to the other, and you are done!  (Pretty easy, right?)
