This one of a kind necklace features rubellite beads (pink tourmaline) with hematite spacers and an electro formed clear quartz pendant. 

 

Rubellite is a stone for the heart, opening you up to receive and give love to oneself and others. As it is a variety of tourmaline it is also a protective and grounding crystal. The clear quartz pendant amplifies the energies of the rubellite crystal and is considered a master healer. 

The necklace is designed more like a choker as it is 40cm long. The quartz crystal is 2.5cm long. 

 

Rose quartz is a heart opening and nourishing crystal, combined with Tibetan turquoise to open the throat chakra and speak from the heart.

I adore this combination and the gentle loving vibes it has.

The beads are approximately 4mm and the rose quartz crystal is 3cm. This necklace is designed long to sit over the heart. It’s finished with an antique toggle clasp however it’s long enough to pop over your head.

The rose quartz is almost translucent with hints of subtle pink shades. Finished with copper border around the crystal through a process of electroforming. It is one of a kind and a lovely piece to adorn yourself with every day. 

 

I have set the rose quartz pendant through the process of electroforming. I begin by preparing the crystal and creating the bail for the necklace, which the chain will pass through. Once I am happy with the setting, I paint a conductive paint onto the parts of the crystal I need the copper to plate onto. The next step is protecting the rest of the crystal with a temporary sealant. Once I have completed these steps, I’m finally ready to put the crystal into my electroforming solution, and use electricity to move copper from one place to another. This process can take anywhere from 24-48 hours, and requires constant monitoring to ensure the process is smooth, and does not happen too quickly, as this affects the quality of the plating. Once the piece is ready, I clean it, remove any sealant from the crystal and finally, sand and polish the copper before adding a chain to finish the necklace. 
 
It’s quite a process from beginning with a raw crystal, to the finished result and one that I absolutely love. I hope that you treasure your new piece of jewellery for a long time to come.
