DIY Gems: Faux Quartz Crystal Jewelry

These fabulous DIY jewelry pieces look just like the real thing, but the sparkling quartz crystals are actually resin instead of rock!

Curious? Check out Mark Montano’s new faux quartz crystal jewelry video tutorial to see how it’s done.

What I like most about this project: You get to learn two fantastic jewelry-making skills in one. While you play with resin, you’ll also get a crash course in making jewelry molds, which is something I’ve been meaning to try anyway.

I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely adding this tutorial to my to-make list!
