i have been looking almost everywhere on this site and have been so amazed by all the wonderful things people are making, i normally just sew, but since finding this site a few months back i have started crocheting and now this!!!!!!...

so i read somewhere on here yesterday that these pendants weren't exactly good for beginners to try making...well check out what this beginner whipped up in about 30 mins....not bad considering it was my first time ever working with making jewelry and using wires etc....the stones are pink stones, i would love to say they are rose quartz but unfortunately i didn't have enough money for rose quartz this time (at the shop where i buy my craft items they had containers with diff sized quartz and it was $22..not expensive but $3 for the stones i got sure was better lol)

cute! nice work for a first try for sure - bit hard to see the colour of the quartz but I know the pink is usually super light and hard to photograph, you might want to try on a black background for pink quartz, bit easier to see.

yeah, the background was black, i think i should have turned the flash off lol, but even when looking at it right in front of you they look more white when they are all together like that
