Jewelry Making for Teens

The Shrink Art Jewelry Kit is a fun jewelry making kit from Klutz.  Recommended for ages 12 & up, I gave this kit to my 12-year old daughter to try out and she loved it!  She had a great time creating jewelry pieces that fit her unique "sporty girl" style.

Kit includes a 62-page shrink art jewelry book, shrinky dinks plastic, hundreds of designs to trace, beads, cord, jewelry findings, and more!  The book provides step-by-step instructions & detailed diagrams for creating one-of-a-kind rings, bracelets, necklaces, and earrings.

You'll learn the simple steps involved in making shrink art jewelry, including how to trace a design on the shrink plastic, decorate it, cut it out, and shrink it in the oven.  Then, you'll use the supplies in the kit to assemble your shrink art into jewelry pieces.  This is a great jewelry craft kit for teens & adults!

The Bead Loom Bracelets Kit from Klutz will show you how to create beautiful beaded bracelets at home.  Kit includes a 59-page bead loom bracelets book, fold-out bead loom, jewel-tone beads, design sketch paper, beading needles, and floss.

The instruction book is full of beautiful color photographs & detailed diagrams for making boutique-quality bracelets.
