Determining, whether you desire to make a crystal pendant or not is the focal point for your jewelry design. It is necessary to ensure that the wire suits the rest of the piece and does not spar other parts of the jewelry. To wrap the crystal, you need to make a base on the top and this base is done by interweaving the wire on the crystal base and tightening it. This is then woven on a wire and is mounted on a pendant. Twisting the loop few times makes it more secure and if you do not wish to work using wire or in case the wrapping does not fit the overall jewelry composition, purchasing end caps from jewelry suppliers is ideal. These caps can be glued on the crystal top.
Purchasing crystals that are available in the beaded form is apposite. The crystals are polished or faceted and normally cost relatively more than the raw crystal. However, the use of any worked crystal is more than the raw crystal. Crystal beads act as separators for focal pieces and the faceted crystal beads become a part of your focal design. Crystal beads are available in various sizes and shapes ranging from minuscule to enormous beads. The durability of the crystal is also making it popular and as flowers and animals are carved in crystals, it is nice to use it as jewelry design.
The only material that can be compared is glass. However, glass is susceptible to damage and chipping and crystal excels in coloration as well. The Quartz crystal comes in rainbow colors and the popular crystal quartz, rose quartz, amethyst, smoky quartz agate and many such countless kinds are easily available.
