DIY jewellery is having a moment – and it’s never been easier to craft something yourself.
Just pick up a kit and save a fortune on Christmas gifts.
SPARKLE STARTER: Beginners who want to start out small should grab Hobbycraft’s beaded earring kit — it’s £3 and has all you need to make a pair of pretty earrings.
Get the kids involved with their own DIY crafting sets, such as the Make It Real Mermaid Treasure jewellery set, priced £10, but currently part of a three-for-two deal on selected children’s kits.
REGAL RESIN: This has been a top catwalk trend. Make your own resin jewellery with the Resin8 charmed tiered necklace kit.
The huge set includes resin, colour pigments, charms, tassels and chains to string your resin creations. It was £40, but is now £36 at Cooksongold.com.
BEAD ALL ABOUT IT: Experienced crafters might already have most of the kit but you can add to your collection with cheap new accessories from The Range.
Get an eight-pack of wooden beads of assorted shapes for £1. Or the pastel beads collection comes in its own handy toolbox with ten different colours — it’s a steal at £1.99!
CREATE A VIBE: Bring some good energy to a friend or ward off negative vibes in your own life with a crystal jewellery-making kit from The Works.
The brilliant set is £7 and comes with three crystals (colours vary), gold wire, a chain with clasp and a project booklet with five ways to make your own necklace.
Plus, it’s part of a three-for-£15 deal, so you could pick up two, plus the clay polymer jewellery craft kit, saving you £6 in total.
BESPOKE BUILD: Want all the luxe but none of the mess? Stacey Solomon is the new ambassador for the Abbottlyon.com jewellery collection.
Choose the Gift Builder bracelet and pick any four charms to personalise it for you or someone else.
It’s usually £59, but use the code BLACK40 to get 40 per cent off now.
