DIY Seed Bead Bracelet | Kit Review

What’s your vote on craft kits? I’m still pretty 50/50. Some of them are amazing and fuel creativity, while others feel a bit cookie cutter and restrictive.

When Jewellery Maker said they have a new range of DIY kits, I wanted to try one for myself. The kit touts itself as “everything you need in one box to take you through the basics”.

And since I had never made a seed bead bracelet before, I just had to put that claim to the test! Scroll through to get my 5 top tips for working with seed beads so you have an easier time than I did figuring it out for the first time.

Makeve kit review

Craft kits are one of my favourite little treats. Especially so when I was building up my stash.

It’s so nice to pick up a box and go home, and know you have everything to make the pretty project on the cover. And now, when my stash is getting out of control, a kit means I don’t have to dig through everything to find that ONE ribbon I SWEAR I had…

Abi and Kirsty are the two women behind Makeve, a business organising relaxed craft nights and other events. They sell their craft kits individually, too. I got to have fun with a couple of them!
