An easy but high impact jewelry DIY with stone beads and a silver charm.

I had some silver heart beads left over from the earring project I shared and I remembered that I'd picked up a strand of Rose Quartz beads at Michaels not too long ago.

They've really upped their game by carrying a much bigger selection of natural stone. Rose Quartz is a PERFECT stone to use with hearts or for Valentine's day because:

"Rose quartz is known as the crystal of unconditional love. It's said to boost feelings of self-love and foster loving relationships with others."

And I really liked these beads because of the paleness of the pink. I'm not a super pink person but these I call "neutral pink".


  • 12MM Rose Quartz Beads (Michaels)
  • Stretch Cord
  • Silver Heart Bead
  • Headpin
  • Black Crystal Beads
  • Crystal Cup Charms
  • Jewelry Plier
  • Jewelry or Super Glue

If I have a "signature" it's adding charm dangles to my stretch bracelets. It started with one and became a habit. So that's the first thing I did using the same process I did to make my earrings. OK, second. The first thing I did was cut a length of stretch cord and attach a clamp so my strung beads don't fall off!

To make the dangle charm, I used one of the heart beads and two more black crystal beads strung on a headpin.

After stringing the Rose Quartz beads on the stretch cord to fit my wrist, I tied off the cord with a simple knot and then added a dot of Super Glue, let dry, then tied another overhand knot. Trim as close to the knot as possible.

I opened a jump ring and added the charm to it.

To finish, add the dangle to the bracelet. I also added a Charm A Long crystal charm because I'm blingy like that.

Like the earrings I made, it doesn't scream "Valentine's" to me but something that can be worn whenever.
