Make your own Jewellery can be Fun!

My girls love jewellery, not surprising most of us do.  In fact they like it so much that I can guarantee you it will feature high up on their list to Santa.  As a result when Interplay asked me what I would like to review this month after taking a good look on their site I decided that the ‘Shamballa Rose Gold Jewellery’ would be something fun for my little ones to do.

The thread ends kept fraying which made it a bit harder to thread the beads on.  A little tip, a quick snip to tidy, moisten the end and roll it into a point as much as it will go which will make it far easier to thread.

I think for the bracelet the instructions were quite good and it is aimed at the right age group (age 8+) as any younger and children would find it confusing.

We have yet to make the earrings as my daughters can’t decide who will have them (they both had their eye in them).  This was quite fun to do although the bracelet was a bit time consuming the children were happy with the end result so for me that made it worth the effort.

This makes a great gift for the jewellery making and craft enthusiast.

We were given this product for an honest review and hope you enjoyed reading it.

  1. I should do this with my daughter! Looks like great fun!

    1. She will love it. Have fun.

  2. I would love to make my own jewellery and this looks like fun with the children too.

    1. The instructions are quite good, just avoid doing it if you have a head cold!

  3. It is really lovely to see children enjoying their-selves with craft fun & learning new skills. I used to design & make jewellery myself & I can’t wait till Sophie is old enough to start using these kind of kits.

    1. She will love making this when she is older.

  4. My eldest loves making necklaces and threading breads. However she is only 4yrs, so this is far too difficult for her. Though I wish I could make a thread that never frays. Always makes it so tricky.

    1. That’s a shame but you could always make it for her like I did.
