This kit is an great opportunity to make several bracelets and rings at an affordable price. You could make the bracelets and rings yourself yourself or it would make a great gift or party activity. You will have enough chips to make 3-4 bracelets and approximately 10 rings .
The kit is made up of one strand of chips, 5m of Copper Jewellery Wire, Long-Lasting Plated, Silver Colour Plated, 20 Gauge, 0.8mm and 10m of 0.8mm elastic and a printed set of instructions on how to make a basic ring.
You do need some way of cutting the wire it can blunt scissors (we use semi flush side cutters) and a way to bend the end of the wire in (we use chain nose pliers) and a way to seal the knot with the elastic we use super glue.
There is an option to buy a Mini Plier Set (3 Piece set includes: round nose plier, chain nose plier, semi flush side cutter) at https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/989445766/select-your-own-jewllery-making-kit?ref=listings_manager_grid&variation0=1966309111&variation1=1947624844
Adult supervision is required with this kit. IT IS NOT A TOY.
PLEASE NOTE THAT SOME GEMSTONES SHOULD BE TREATED CAREFULLY IN SOME SITUATIONS FOR EXAMPLE CITRINE MAY FADE WHEN EXPOSED TO SUNLIGHT FOR A FEW HOURS. PHOTOS INCLUDED SO YOU CAN SEE ROUGHLY HOW MANY OF EACH CHIP YOU WILL GET AS THE AMOUNT YOU GET VARIES WITH THE GEMSTONE. PLEASE NOTE CHIPS VARY ALOT IN SIZE.
My wholesaler classes natural as taken from the Earth and my understanding is this is the case with all these gemstones. The chips are mainly 5mm to 8mm in size (for there longest dimensions) and most have a hole of 1mm. The following chip beads are processed with heat (sometimes heat with wax to protect the bead) Amethyst, Fluorite, Rose Quartz. Gemstones often have enhancements. I try to keep to the same codes when I order but at times that stock isn't available and I will have to order lines where I don't know if those chips have treatments or not.
NONE OF THESE CHIPS ARE PLASTIC NOR A DIFFERENT GEMSTONE.
These beads are not a medical treatment and medical advice should always be sought from doctors.
Please remember the pictures may appear different colours on different screens, also there is variation in the stones that come to me even when I order the same code each time.
Beads are not suitable for under 3's and are a choking hazard.
Also all chips will have holes on them as the are taken off of a strand to make the mix.
