Gemstone pendants are perfect items for mothers to give their daughters. The daughters grow up with pendants they can use to accessorize their outfits so they learn to pick the right accessories for the tight outfits. They also learn to care for their jewelry. Match their jewelry, and store and clean their jewelry.
Gemstone pendants can have one simple stone on the end of a simple chain or cord, or they could have several stones on a chain of cord. The design of the pendant will make little difference in the price. Your price differences start to happened depending on the materials quality.
If the stone is a precious or semi-precious one it will cost more than one that has a stone that is a replica or a plastic piece. If the item is placed on a chain of silver or gold it will cost more than one that is placed on a cord or a strip of leather. You have to decide the occasion for giving the item and then choose if you want to spend a lot of money on it or a small amount of money on it.
Everyone can make gemstone pendants at name. They are the simplest jewelry items to make and they are often the first jewelry items that a person attempts to make using stones. Many crafters start making these items when they are children and their love for crafting grows from that moment on.
Buying the stones is as simple as looking online for distributors who offer the items for sale. Try to find a distributor that has free shipping policies or what will reduce the price of the items when you buy large quantities. You can often save so much money by buying in bulk that you can afford to buy twice the amount of stones that you thought you could get.
Join a cooperative or a crafting group and buy your items with them so you can buy in larger quantities. Thousands of stones will be only a few pennies each where a single stone may cost as much as five dollars. You can really mop up the savings by bulk shopping.
