Simple Necklace with Swarovski Crystal Birthstones DIY

Simple Necklace with Swarovski Birthstones.

Sometimes less is more. And being square can be cool. Just check out this super easy necklace. Add one, two, or as many Swarovski Crystal birthstones as you like to represent birthdays or favorite colors. 

We love how easy it is to stamp on Pewter, like butter! We found it a bit challenging to put a hole through this blank so we went with a jump ring instead. We ended up liking this option a lot because it gives the blank mobility which is kind of cool. 

Another option is to add initials instead of birthstones. For this blank, 2mm letter stamps work well. We used 2mm Uppercase Kismet in the second sample photo.

  1. It's a good idea to make sure you have room for your design stamps to fit nicely. Even experienced stampers will plan out a design before stamping it out. We have a perfect solution that is both low in cost and very helpful in planning for space, etc. Try our Aluminum Foil Practice Stamp Sheets.
