DIY Tutorial – Rock Candy Chandelier by Laurie Cinotto

Here’s another neat way to use rough gemstones in a way other than setting them into jewelry.  I thought I would share Laurie Cinotto’s tutorial (via OnceWed.com) since I’ve been thinking a lot about other uses for gemstones for crafters with no metalsmithing experience.

In Laurie’s tutorial, she uses rock candy to make these lovely romantic pendant chandeliers but I thought you could certainly substitute the candy and use rough gemstones and create a more permanent fixture.

See the full tutorial here.  All you need are some wires and ribbons …. You can certainly change up the color of the beads and ribbons to create a totally different look.  Brilliant!
