We Love Checkmybox!

Checkmybox have created wonderful jewellery making kits for us crafty folk! We can now learn and make up-to-date and on trend jewellery in our own homes. These kits include easy to follow step-by-step guides so you really don't need to be an expert to get stuck in. We tried and tested their ombre seed bead bracelet kit which definitely gets the TWB seal of approval! This kit provides enough supplies to make two bracelets with two colour options, mint and monochrome (see below), which are right on trend. Head over their website here to see the different kits you can get your hands on to get the latest looks.

And here are the results!

I thoroughly enjoyed making these bracelets and the instructions were really easy to follow. I love the ombre effect created by using the different beads and the mint colour is gorgeous. Plaiting the beaded strands is a clever way to give the bracelet a more chunky and textured look. I'm so chuffed with the outcome, it definitely looks as good as what you can by in the shops! I've got my eye on another Checkmybox DIY; the spikey necklace kit looks amazing!

These kits make ideal gifts for birthdays. And they by no means break the bank which is always a concern for us students. In fact they're cheaper than buying the jewellery from the highstreet! Check them out HERE and give it a go!!

Lots of love
