Jewelrymaking: Rose Quartz Bracelet With Heart 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're 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. 

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. 

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.

Rose quartz is a semi-precious gemstone and NOT a crystal as you have written in your instructions on making this bracelet.

Precious gemstones are sapphires, rubies, emeralds, and diamonds.

Rose quartz and so many other stones are semi-precious stones like amethysts, ametrine, beryl, botswana agate, agate, garnet, aquamarine, peridot, opal, topaz (all colors), turquoise, zircon, malachite, jasper, tiger's eye, and many more.

Feeling cranky today? She referred to Michael’s selection of natural stone and posted a quote about rose quartz. Why not just take the blog for what it is? A well written set of instructions to make a pretty bracelet.
