These Simple Cut Quartz Nuggets are just gorgeous. Super sparkly due to their many facets, the beads are perfect to use when making earrings to celebrate the New Year! Though there is only a small amount of beading wire used in the design, you can make the earrings using any color of wire that will complement your party look! The instructions below are for a pair of earrings using Garnet Beading Wire, while the other examples shown are made with Green Turquoise and Purple Amethyst.

Materials needed:
12" of Garnet .019 Diameter Soft Flex Beading Wire
8 Sterling Silver 2mm Crimp Tubes
8 Sterling Silver 3mm Crimp Covers
1 Pair of Silver Plated Ear Wires
4 Clear Quartz 20x12mm Simple Cut Nuggets

Tools Needed:
Cutters
Crimping Pliers
Chain Nose Pliers

Finished Size: 2 1/4"
Step 1: Use 3" of beading wire to string 1 crimp tube. Pass back through the tube, forming a small loop of wire. Crimp the crimp tube. Trim the wire end. Cover the crimp tube with 1 crimp cover.
Step 2: String 1 quartz nugget and 1 crimp. Snug the crimp bead close to the bead, and crimp.
Step 3: Cover the crimp tube with 1 crimp cover. Trim the wire end.
Step 4: Use 3" of beading wire to string 1 crimp tube and the loop of wire formed in Step 1. Pass back through the tube, forming a small loop of wire. Crimp the crimp tube, trim the wire end, and cover the crimp tube with 1 crimp cover.
Step 5: String 1 quartz nugget and 1 crimp tube. Pass back through the tube, leaving a small loop of wire. Crimp the crimp tube, trim the wire end, and cover the crimp tube with 1 crimp cover.
Step 6: Attach 1 ear wire to the previous loop of beading wire.

Step 7: Repeat Steps 1-6 for the second earring.

Enjoy! Happy New Year to you all!
