You may have noticed in our monthly inspiration video that Anna and I were wearing purple. And you probably also noticed that purple is the main color in all of our projects this month. This spring we are all about the color purple, so we had to include our amethyst jewelry in our April craft collection.
Below you will find a list of all of the tools and materials we used to make this gorgeous set of earrings and a matching necklace. Just follow our tutorial to create them on your own!
Amazed by Amethyst
We love looking at the deeper meaning behind what we create. This gemstone is typically viewed as a symbol of peace and stillness. It is also thought to bring clarity and allow the mind to flow freely. These are all things that crafting can also help foster, so this project is especially meaningful!
Ready to invoke a feeling of calm, balance, and peace? Check out our supplies list below, then follow our step-by-step tutorial to make your own amethyst jewelry. When you’re done crafting, be sure to share photos of you wearing your new earring and necklace by tagging #MadeWithLia on Instagram or by sharing in our private Facebook page for members. You could also make this jewelry set as a gift for Mother’ Day, a friend’s birthday, or as an anniversary present.

You’re replying so fast, that’s amazing. Thank you, I will try to look for a thicker wire cuz I was really disappointed with the result I got with mine although those earrings are so beautiful !
By the way, I am in love with your June collection 🙂
Has anyone already tried to make these beautiful earrings? I I am having a hard really hard time trying to shape the earrings. How do you have them stay the way you want? The wire is so souple, it makes it really hard…
Do you have some tips for beginners or shall I just use a harder wire?
The 18-gauge wire we used is pretty thick and the shape stays put, so you may want to look for thicker wire!
