The Perfect Girls’ Night Craft Kits
The Summer 2015 issue of Jewelry Stringing is going to be one of our best yet! We have several great kits available in this issue, including one from Jewelry Stringing Editor Debbie Blair! Debbie uses wood beads, scrapbooking paper, and light-activated dye to make cute beads and pendants that are completely unique. Download Debbie’s video Transform Wood Beads with Paper and Dye and purchase the accompanying kit to get started. If you’ve ever dreamed of a bead with a specific pattern or in a specific color that just doesn’t exist, Debbie will show you how to make that fantasy a reality!
Jewelry Stringing’s staff played around with the Craft Fantastic bracelet kit in the office on a recent Friday afternoon, and it was such a fun and quick way to make jewelry. This kit would really be great for a girls’ night or to introduce a beginner to jewelry making. I can totally see myself and a few girlfriends having a great time drinking wine and making some pretty earrings or necklaces!
Susan Lenart Kazmer’s cold enameling kit would also be great to use with some friends! This kit comes with some ready-to-enamel bezels and pendants, an enameling medium, and enamel powders. All you need is a hair dryer to make your own enameled, wearable works of art!
The thing I love about all of these kits is how they offer crafters the ability to make one-of-a-kind jewelry easily in their own homes. As we stringers know, there’s nothing as satisfying as making something unique. Which kit sounds like the most fun to you? Pick your favorite today and get customizing!
