It can also be a great social activity (craft-a-noon tea anyone?).

Wearable art is totally ‘on trend’. The more creative your jewellery, the better. And it doesn’t have to be made of expensive materials. Who needs gold when you can have rainbow acorn charms?
The wonderful thing about crafting your own jewellery is that you can experiment as much as you like – with colours, with materials, with styles, or with sizes. It can be as creative, as intricate or as beautiful as you like. It can be full of meaning like the Element Jar Necklace or delicate and refined like the Wood Monogram Wire Bracelet.

Up in lights
The price of battery operated LED lights has gone way down since their popularity has boomed in recent years. Now anyone can buy an LED strip of lights or LED fairy string and create gorgeous crafty items based around them.
Use LED craft to add pizzazz to your spaces, both inside and out. Make paper stars, floral garlands or cup garlands – all beautiful in their own right – come to life with the added twinkle of lights.
