I was visiting some relative up in our hill country ...when I saw some rocks...yes rocks :-)
immediately I thought to try out these cool chunky rock jewelry...
It's so easy I finished all in one afternoon.

I love this chunky collection :-)!

Step 1: Go exploring!

go exploring and find your rocks...I found my relatives were constructing their house and that's when the rocks and thought of doing this project.
earring hardware
thick gauge wire
thin gauge wire
gold spray paint
needle nose pliers.

Step 2: Making your frame

I wanted a strong wire chain to hold the rocks...so I took thick wire, double the length That I wanted...and folded it in two to make a loop.
Then join the ropes so that it forms a flat chain...to join the wire so that it doesn't move I wrapped thin gauge wire at intervals. It gave the chain a nice look
To make the hook when you come to the end again fold one wire so that the ends are rounded...cut the other wire where it meets the tip of the folded wire.
Now wrap up that area with thin wire so that it would be concealed and it won't prick.  fold the end into a hook to fit the loop at the other end.
There your necklace frame is ready.
Make similar  frames for your ring...without the hook being formed...that way you would have an adjustable ring.
If you don't want to make a ring...you can always buy a ready made one! :-)

I had an old bangle around...so I used that for my bangle frame.

Step 3: Rock Necklace

To make your Rock Necklace ...take the frame you made. Apply epoxy to the chain and stone and glue.
Once dry wrap with thin wire.
Now spray with gold or what ever your heart desires :-)

Step 4: Cunky Rocking Bangle

Thank you! I like the ring too....wore it the other day and got sooo many looks and like ' Where did you get that from??' ;-)
you're welcome! I'd ask the same question if I didn't know you made'em! they're beautiful.
I love this - such a good idea to spray everything after it's assembled - the wire looks awesome in gold. :D
