You may remember a little while ago Little Miss A received the Fairy Charm Jewellery set to review from Interplay. She has really enjoyed creating lots of pieces of jewellery for herself so was delighted when a new set arrived, this time with Mermaid charms!
The Mermaid Charm Jewellery kit is so pretty I almost wanted to use it for myself! It has a lot of different coloured beads to make up to 10 bracelets or necklaces. The kit also comes with 10 really pretty mermaid themed charms to make your items really stand out. There is an instruction booklet to give you some ideas to get started, however, it is really up to you how you want to decorate your jewellery.
In the box you receive 75 Bicone Beads in blue, green and purple; 45 Faceted Beads in pink, blue and turquoise; 125 Round beads in silver, fuchsia, purple and coral; 20 Pearl beads in pale gold and cream; 10 Assorted Shell and Starfish Beads; 5 Gold metal charms; 5 Silver metal charms; 10 split rings; 5 clasps, 10 clasp beads; 4 metres of stretch cord in purple and 1 instruction booklet.
The kit is aimed at children aged 4 and over which I think is about right. Little Miss A needed a little bit of help to get started, however, I had noticed a huge improvement in her hand eye coordination threading on the beads since last time. Little Miss A chose a charm which I put onto a split ring. She then threaded it onto the cord and started choosing the beads to go onto the bracelet. There was no pattern to Little Miss A’s choices she just went with the ones she loved!
Once we had placed on around 15 beads we checked it around her wrist. We needed around 20 beads to ensure the bracelet was long enough for Little Miss A’s wrist. Once all of the beads were in place we tied the cord 4-5 times as recommended before trimming off the ends. Little Miss A has worn the bracelet a lot and is constantly pulling at it but it has not come undone.
We still have a lot of beads and cord left to make plenty more jewellery and Little Miss A has said she would like to make a necklace next. I really like that you receive a clasp fastening for the necklaces which are easy to attach and mean the necklace will be much safer for Little Miss A to wear.
I am really pleased with the amount of different beads and charms you receive in this kit. All of the items are great quality and I feel they should last some time. For the price I think the kit is excellent value for money and we would recommend it to any little one that has a passion for jewellery and getting creative like Little Miss A!
Disclosure – We received this kit free of charge in return for our honest review.
