Jewelry Making Kits for Beginners

If you are new to jewellery making, it would be easiest for you to make jewellery by purchasing a kit. Kits are convenient for jewellery makers because the beads and other components needed to make a specific piece of jewellery come with them. Some jewellery making kits are more complicated than others, so choosing an easy one is more appropriate for the beginner.

Shell Pearl Beading Kit

If you like the look of fancy pearl bracelets but the prices are a little steep, you can order the kit to make them for less. You can also make a necklace and a pair of earrings with the kit, which gives you a matching jewellery set. The bead caps, clasps, chain and earring hooks are all made of the same colour metal and matching design. The instructions are made for the beginner and will introduce you to using clasps and other components.

Basic Polymer Clay Beads and Wire Wrapping Kit

Wire wrapping is just a little more advanced, but with the proper tools, a beginner can do it. Look for a jewellery making kit with an instructional DVD that you can pause, rewind and watch as you work. Polymer clay is easy to work with because it only needs a conventional oven to harden, and it comes in many different colours. The tools you need do not come with the kit, but you can find them in any craft store.

Summer Beach Necklace Kit

You can make a summery necklace with a round pendant that resembles a shell. Some side cutters, chain-nose pliers and round-nose pliers are needed for this project, all of which are good basic tools to invest in for jewellery making. Read the instructions or watch the video to learn how to make a lark's head knot, which is what you will use to attach the pendant to the necklace cord.

Christmas Tree Earrings Kit

Earrings in the shape of Christmas trees would make an appropriate holiday gift, especially if you take the time to make them yourself. The earring kit comes with instructions that will show you how to attach a flathead pin to an earring hook. You will need a pair of round-nose pliers, and the kit comes with all the beads and components you need. The beads are Swarovski crystal beads, so they will sparkle and shine like a lit Christmas tree.
