I love trying all sorts of crafts as you will all know; but jewellery making is something I hadn't yet tried my hand at. It always seemed like you had to have an awful lot of bits and bobs with beads being sold in bulk and wires in metre roles and I never really wanted to commit; especially if it was making something that I wouldn't necessarily wear. Then I was given the opportunity to try out making my own jewellery with a kit by Jewellery Maker.
At first I wasn't hopeful that I would find something that I actually liked (in terms of the finished product) but it soon became apparent that Jewellery maker sell kits not just for craft lovers but for people who enjoy wearing something lovely. A majority of the items are very wearable, modern pieces and there was a lot of variety. I don't wear a lot of costume jewellery but I wear a rose gold watch daily so I picked out a complimenting rose gold plated star charms bracelet.
My kit arrived and I was taken by surprise by how promptly it was delivered. The packaging was contemporary and very smart looking and I was impressed. Until I opened it. The packets inside were very small for the large box they were packaged in and it seemed a lot of waste. This could maybe be due to standard box sizes across the Jewellery Maker products which would be understandable and fortunately the sides of the box are genuinely bright and pretty so it makes for great storage on my bookcase and won't be thrown away.
