Jewellery making is a wonderful hobby, an opportunity for creativity, making beautiful things for yourself or to give as special gifts. It also doesn’t take too much space. These kits are a great way to introduce beginners to skills and materials that take time to source. Often gemstones come in long strings of many stones which aren’t suitable for the occasional or hobby user or are expensive to try. These kits give you a taster, skills and small packs of materials to try. The suppliers list provided will help you find the best places to source your materials for more projects and experimentation.
