Amazonite & Rose Quartz ‘Y’ Necklace & Earrings

Amazonite & Rose Quartz 'Y' Necklace & Earrings

For this necklace and earring set, it utilises Amazonite (8 x 10mm glass oval tube) and Rose Quartz (3 x 6mm) semi-precious stones that are wired together using silver-plated wire (0.6mm thickness).

This is my first major foray in to using wire to create jewellery, and one which I plan on exploring and learning more of, as I like the look and texture that wire can add to an item of jewellery.

This jewellery is created wire wrapping with a single wire over the amazonite bead and adding a rose quartz bead with the ends of a beaded section being made in to closed loops. For the bottom of the Y shape on the necklace and for the earrings, rather than having a closed loop at the bottom, the end of the wire is curled back to create a coil shape.

I found it very easy to accidentally nick the silver-plated wire when cutting the end of a wire off, if I wasn’t very careful how I positioned my side cutters to avoid touching any other parts of wire.

Necklace

The necklace has an overall length of 18″ (not including the 2″ extender chain). The beads are made in three separate sections that are joined together to create a Y shape, before adding the chain which is finished off with a lobster clasp. The bottom of the Y shape is 1″ in length.
