myStyle Surf Style Jewellery

myStyle Surf Style Jewellery set was a perfect introduction to jewellery making for CM. Whilst it is designed for children aged 8+ the fantastic part of the set is that the projects are of varying difficulty, meaning that at age 7 CM was able to make some bracelets and necklaces, supervise others, and have some wonderful additions to her beach-themed additions for her school project.My Style Craft Surf Style JewelleryOn being presented with the third element of her beach themed project, CM quickly got to work looking at the projects, deciding to whom she would gift each, in what colour way, and in what order we should do our making.My Style Craft Surf Style JewelleryThe set contains everything you need bar a pair of scissors. From lengths of two thicknesses of cord, jump-rings, beads, clasps, and pendants- the instructions even have a handy ruler across the top of each page to help you out.
My Style Craft Surf Style JewelleryThere were parts of each project which CM was more adept at than others. The projects which have charms as their focal points were more focused on single knots, which CM was able to create and got to grips with threading beads and manipulating jump rings.My Style Craft Surf Style JewelleryAnd CM was really pleased with the fruits of her labour, and mine. Some of the projects are more straightforward, and perfect for 8 year-olds. The effect of your efforts is pretty and particularly complemented by the pendants included in the set.My Style Craft Surf Style JewelleryThe overall result of projects which can be undertaken between a 7 year-old and their mother is shown below. It was a good project for us to work on together. Some (where there were plaits) took more effort from me than her, others were just me making sure she had her knots and measures so the bracelets were of a good size.
My Style Craft Surf Style Jewellery There are other projects which are more testing, which is a natural progression in the suggested projects. I have to admit on a few even my patience was challenged. Much of this is due to my lack of spacial awareness and appreciation- but in honesty some projects have been returned to the case for another look on a brighter day.My Style Craft Surf Style JewelleryBut then were the projects where as soon as she had finished making her brothers demanded they were theirs.My Style Craft Surf Style JewelleryThe myStyle Surf Style set retails at £9.99. Making 12 projects it is value for money and has the ability to stimulate creativity in young people. The range of projects available to create ensures it offers stimulation to a broad age range.

    Roo is so funny about craft projects, she will love some and hate others, however, I really like this one and I’m sure she would like it too. A summer of making bracelets and necklaces for her friends
