Christmas Gift Ideas 2: Jewellery

This the second in my series of Christmas Gift Ideas posts. This post centres around the wearable craft range Close to My Heart have available.
There are many types of jewellery at different price margins. My favourite is the pendant necklace. I have been running Base n Bling Parties where each guest gets to make a pendant for $20, which is very affordable. It is a little cheaper if you buy the pieces in bulk. The components of the necklace are: chain ($10), pendant ($8 or $10 for a pack of three), clear glass cover ($3 or $5 for a pack of three), charms ($7 or $8 for a pack of six) and icon sticker ($7 for a sheet of 28-32). If you have many gifts to make, this is definitely the way to buy your supplies. Throw in a bottle of Liquid Glass ($12) and Christmas is SORTED!
Here is a picture from Hey Girl You can see the creator is ready to gift a lot of crafty friends with their own beautiful necklaces!
For a slightly different (and even quicker) handmade gift, you could choose to create a cuff. I have been running classes for these are $15 per person. The components you will need to complete a cuff are the oval cuff ($8, either gold or silver), the oval glass covers ($5 a pack of three), and an icon sticker ($7 for a sheet of 28-32).
I have seen some other beautiful ideas with our Base n Bling items too. Here is a photo of the beautiful fridge magnets created by a sister consultant - Angela Mansfield - in the USA. She has used our bases, icons, covers and charms, but added strong magnets to the back with Liquid Glass. What a beautiful idea!
I have also seen our charms used frequently on cards, as drawer pulls on 3D boxes, and as wine charms. They're actually very versatile wee items.
