Are you up for a challenge?

Are you up for a challenge? I am back with another post about the jewellery myself and Natalie are selling.....
We have come up with a jewellery kit that we think would be a perfect starting point for anyone wanting to get into jewellery making. The colours may vary from the picture but you will get all of the following......



1 pair of round nosed pliers
1 pair of side cutters
1 pair of chain nosed pliers
1 x 50 meters roll of tigertail wire
1 x 4 meter roll of elastic
1 meter of silver tone chain
1 meter of waxed cord
1 meter of organza ribbon
50 x 5mm jump rings
50 x silver plated head pins
50 x silver plated eye pins
20 x earring hooks
20 x silver plated calotte
20 x silver plated cord ends
1 x filigree heart pendant
3 x 20mm lampwork round beads
2 x 20g bags of seed beads
100 x 8mm glass beads
30 x 6mm glass pearls
30 x 6mm acrylic beads
30 x 4mm glass bicones
100 silver plated crimp beads (approx there maybe a few more)

Myself and Natalie took a kit each to see how much we could make using only what was in the kit. Natalie won as she managed to create a massive 11 necklaces, 4 bracelets and 10 pairs of earrings. And she still has some findings, chain,wire,elastic and seed beads left over!
The whole kit is just £15.99 so well worth it.

As well as that we thought we would have a bit of fun and challenge you all to show us how much or what you can create with the kit, so if you buy it and show off your makes on your blog or email them to us you can enter a challenge to win a surprise beading pack.

Here are some examples of what Natalie and I created using the set to get you inspired.....



So now it is your turn to show us what you can do and if you want to know how we made any of our samples please just ask and we will let you know.

You can buy the kit HERE from our Ebay store.

When you have made something please leave us a link on our The crafty butterfly store blog.

I am entering these creations for the following challenges:
Corrosive challenges - Heavy metal
Gingerloft challenge - Anything but a card
Fashionista challenge - For the girls and bling (is this bling enough :D )
