Bead-Kids Bracelet Kits – Review

Bead-Kids offer bead making jewellery kits, ideal for parties, party bags and gift ideas. We were sent the Dolphin Friendship Bracelet kit for 8yr old Miss M to try out and see what she thought.

bead kitsThe kit comes in a handy little box, that’s divided into sections and keeps everything separated and easy to find.  The box being transparent makes it easy to see what you get and where it is.  I like that the packaging is minimal but recyclable, we will definitely keep and use the little sectioned box for other craft bits.

Miss M couldn’t wait to get started, threading the beads and charms onto the cord.  We then needed to follow the instructions to tie the knots at each end.  We did get a little confused as to which diagram we were refering to, but I soon worked it out and showed Miss M what to do.  She then had a go herself on the other bracelets.

The organza bag that comes in the set makes a nice place to store the bracelets or use as a gift if you are giving one away.  Miss M has decided to keep her favourite bracelet herself and give the other two away to her two best friends at school, as they are friendship bracelets after all.

Silver Charm Bracelet from The Charm Works

The Charm Works offers a vast range of silver charms and bracelet variants, there really is a choice to suit everyone and they certainly don’t disappoint on the presentation.  How could I not want to see what was in this pretty looking parcel that arrived through the post, even though I’d picked out my choices online, it’s always intriguing to see if the product looks as good in real life particularly with jewellery.InstagramCapture_965726b4-8ce4-445c-9d1f-07e7230af70a

The website offers a vast array of different charms and in different formats, from traditional, beads and clip ons. They also have a variety of bracelets with something to suit every taste.  I opted for the Sterling Silver Cable Chain Bracelet with Heart Toggle.


The bracelet is chunky but not overly so and feels totally solid, with the bar to fasten easy to slip through the heart and feels secure.  All bracelets come gift boxed with a cleaning cloth, great to keep them nice and shiny.

There are many charms available and they are categorised on the website to help you search for suitable designs.  I chose an personalised heart which is engraved with my children’s names, a crystal letter of my first initial and a brushed sterling silver star charm.

All charms come already applied to your bracelet, so it is completely ready to wear when it arrives.  You can even choose which order to have the charms positioned in along the chain.  The charms are all beautiful and look lovely on the bracelet.  This is a timeless piece that can be worn at anytime which is great as it means I get to enjoy it more.

These would make great gifts for someone, or even if you had a charm bracelet already that you wanted to add too, then there is a multitude of charms to choose from and they are all very competitively prices.  I’ve already eyed up a couple more that I’d love to add to mine some time.

Make sure you check out The Charm Works to see what they have to offer, you may be surprised at the choice and great value, and of course as I have seen myself, the great quality that they offer.

Valentine’s Personalised Bracelet – Review

There’s nothing a girl likes more on Valentine’s Day than receiving a piece of jewellery, so if you are stuck for ideas this year then take a look at this personalised hallmarked sterling silver bracelet consisting of entwined hearts with a heart charm attached from Treat Republic.

valentines braceletThe bracelet is presented in a black box, with a little cream, satin bag to keep the bracelet in (ideal if you are going away somewhere).  The heart links form a delicate but sturdy chain that looks pretty, with a heart charm hanging down.  The charm can be personalised with a name, date or initials of your choosing.  I chose to have my wedding date put on as we will be celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary next month so I thought this would make a rather fitting gift to receive this year for Valentine’s Day.

I love this bracelet, it sits comfortably on the wrist, is easy to do up with a simple clasp, looks pretty and the personalisation on it makes it special, I’ve had a few people comment on it already!

If you are stuck for Valentine’s Day then why not head over to Treat Republic to check out this silver bracelet and many other jewellery gifts they have available.  You’re sure to find something to surprise your loved one with this Valentine’s Day!
