The Benefits of Making Your Own Jewellery

If you’re tempted to start the New Year with a brand new hobby, beading could be perfect! In this post we’ll share some of the main benefits to making your own jewellery.


Jewellery making can be an incredibly therapeutic hobby that can help you to unwind after a long day. Whether you make a Kumihimo bracelet using Swarovski beads while watching your favourite soaps on TV or you prefer to sit in silence while you create a beaded choker, jewellery making can be a really relaxing way to pass the time.

Unleash your creativity

Making your own jewellery can be a great way to unleash your creativity and make something completely unique. And with so many beading supplies to choose from, the creativity begins as soon as you step foot in The Bead Shop.

Personalise your jewellery

Buying your jewellery ready-made can certainly be convenient, but finding the perfect necklace to fit your personality or complement a special outfit can be a challenge. By making your own jewellery from scratch, however, you can create something that is completely unique and right for you.

Improve your health

Taking up a new hobby can be good for the mind, body and soul. Not only will you be able to relax and de-stress, but you’ll also and benefit from that sense of satisfaction once you’ve completed your latest project.

Give great gifts

We all have at least one friend that is impossible to buy for, but if you’re able to make your own jewellery, belts, key rings and accessories, you’ll never be stuck in a gift-giving rut again!
