Materials for DIY crystal jewelry

1. Gather materials

To start off, I have several different materials here to create our DIY crystal jewelry with.

You’re definitely going to need some crystals and some malleable wire. I also have some leather cording as well and a few other bits.

Bending wire into shape

2. Bend your wire into shape

So, I'll show you how I made a ring with just some cheap wire that I picked up at the dollar store.

This wire is really easy to work with because it's malleable. Use your wire tools to bend the ring to the shape of your finger.

Alternatively, you could use a cheap plain ring or upcycle an old plain ring. 

Attaching the crystals

3. Attach the crystals

Next, I’m using e6000 glue to attach the crystal to the ring.

I used a binder clip to hold the crystals in place while the glue dried. 

Attaching the crystals

Then, while the rings started to dry, I went ahead and attached a crystal to my leather cord to make my DIY crystal bracelet. Let that glue dry overnight.

4. Add wire

The next day, you’ll see that the crystal is holding onto the ring but it's definitely not super stable.

So, the next step is to take a really thin wire which will serve as both a functional and decorative element. Wrap the wire all the way around the ring.

You can do as much or as little as you like. Then, fold the wire down underneath the crystal and clip off any excess.

Moving onto your DIY crystal bracelet, you’re going to do the same, wrapping the wire around the crystal to secure it. Again, fold the wire down underneath the crystal and clip off any excess. 

Adding bead to bracelet

5. Add bead to bracelet

I decided to wrap the bracelet around my wrist three times.

Then, I tied it up with a bead. You’ll need a bead that has a hole wide enough to allow the cord to pass through it twice simultaneously.

Adding clamps to crystal bracelet

6. Add clamps

Then, on the ends of each of those cord strands, attach a metal clamp so the bead can’t slip off.
