A few weeks ago before the madness of London Fashion Week and my New York adventure, the lovely guys over at shopping channel QVC, invited me over for a spot of jewellery making. This isn’t my first foray into jewellery making, I am a bead whizz when it comes to making my own bracelets and necklaces, well that is when I have the time. So I was excited to hear that QVC are adding some amazing jewellery making ranges to their impressive craft section, and I completely loved making my own Steam Punk necklace.
QVC are quite big in the craft world, if you didn’t know either I don’t think we are alone, but among paper crafters this is the place to go for supplies; for jewellery makers like me who like to make pretty things to wear, you probably do what I do and negotiate auction site, eBay. Well QVC have listened to the gap in the market and have a great selection of ranges and dedicated airtime to help you start your jewellery obsession.
The new lines offer you everything from bead packs, findings, Beadalon goodies, chain kits, and even storage solutions. One of my favourites coming soon is Steam Punk, an American line of pendants, chains and components to make cute and individual pieces. It was this line that we got to test out and make our own, I have to admit I kind of went a little overboard on my necklace, mainly because I wanted all the vintage looking keys on mine!!
It was such a fun event, as well as making our own necklaces, we also got a tour around the shopping channel. Seeing the shows being filmed live was so much fun.
The new jewellery making show on QVC, Creating Jewellery show starts on October 18 at 2pm, seriously don’t miss it, some bargains to be had!!!
