DIY Raw Stone Earrings

Learn how to make these gorgeous DIY Raw Stone Earrings in under five minutes!

When I tell you these earrings will take you five minutes to make, I’m not exaggerating. These DIY raw stone earrings are so gorgeous and such a cinch to make. There is such beauty in raw minerals like rose quartz, amazonite, apatite, fluorite and garnet. The colors and natural patterns in the stones are so exquisite.

One of my favorite shops in Crested Butte is our local bead store. There are trays and trays of amazing minerals and stones. It was so fun to pick out the stones for these stud earrings. The challenge was just finding two stones that are close enough in shape and size to work as earrings.

We love to make DIY jewelry, like these stone pendants, this copper and wood bead necklace, or the simple seed bead necklace, and you can’t go wrong with the 10-minutes tassel necklace tutorial.

    these are so pretty! Since we visit CB every summer, I immediately thought, I bet i know where she got those raw stones! My 4 yr old loved picking out a few “pretty rocks” there last year!

    So beautiful and simple! I was a tiara designer (and other bridal accessories, too) for 13 years and have a ton of leftover jewelry findings and supplies just sitting in the garage. I need to find some raw gemstones and use up some of that stock!

    I love the idea of these! If you don’t mind me asking, where did you get your stones from, or do you have any suggestions of where to buy them?

    • melissa fenlonJuly 22, 2016 at 11:55 am

      Amanda, I bought the stones at my local bead store, which carries a great selection of rocks and minerals. I would check a store like that first!

    I love these earrings! I love the simplicity of making my own. I think I’ll use the gemstone chips, that will be fun. Thank you for sharing.

      Hi Shannon, my local bead store has them. Try bead stores or rock shops. Let me know if that doesn’t work. –Melissa

    What camera and lens are your favorites for photographing posts like this? Also, any other hints you might have to fining raw stones for this project. My local shops don’t seem to have any raw stones. Much appreciated!!

      I use a macro lens to shoot jewelry. As for the stone, my local bead shop carries them. I will go in and ask the store owner if she recommends an online source and I’ll let you know.

        Thank you! I have been on the hunt for the raw stones and can’t find them anywhere!
