What Jewellery Making Supplies Do You Need?

Whether you are looking to design your own jewellery from scratch or build it using our make-it-yourself kits, it’s simple with help from Zap! Take a look at our must have jewellery making supplies to get the creativity flowing:

  • Jewellery Chain – To help make your bracelet and necklace designs a reality, we have a fantastic range of metre length and ready-made chains. Choose from pre-made bracelet and necklace chains or cut your own from our lengths of chain.
  • Jewellery Findings – One of the most important components, findings include everything from jump rings and earring wires to clasps and fixings.
  • Acrylic Charms – At Zap! we offer a wide range of pre-made acrylic charms for use in your jewellery designs including lockets, cameo settings, printed wooden and acrylic charms.

How To Use Your Jewellery Making Kit?

If you have purchased a complete jewellery making kit, most will come with a set of instructions to assemble your desired jewellery piece. If you are going it alone and looking to create something from scratch, take a look at our tips for designing stunning pieces of jewellery.

  1. Plan your design on paper before you start. This will save you time later on and give you an opportunity to explore ideas. It’s also useful to draw out sketches to give yourself a measure of how you want it to look when finished.
  2. Organise your workspace. Sort all parts and components into types for easy locating, with space in front of you for construction. Put all your tools within easy reaching distance and the instructions clearly in front of your construction space.
  3. Layout design. Before assembling your chosen design, lay all the components and charms out in an expanded view. This will give you a good idea as to what your acrylic jewellery will look like, and whether you need to change anything.
