Welcome Back

In today’s post I will be reviewing; Sanctuary Beads Jewellery Starter Kit

Sanctuary Beads; Jewllery Making Starter Kit

Sanctuary Beads; Jewllery Making Starter Kit

Product Details

  • Manufacturer/Brand; Sanctuary Beads
  • Item number
  • RRP at time of writing: £14.99

Reason For Buying

Having watched the jewellery making shows on C&C I really wanted to try beading. I didn’t want to spend a lot as due to poor dexterity and RSI, I doublted if I’d be able to do this hobby, but I wanted to try to find out.

Pros/Cons

  • Well known brand; Beadsmith tools & bead board included;
  • Selection of findings for earings, necklaces and bracelets
  • Selection of thread types, Tiger Tail and elastic
  • Beading mat
  • Beading Board
  • Box of Beads of various kinds

Cons

The materials were quite soft and several pins were bent or misshaped. The soft metal was an advantage in my case as it made it easier to bend. Even if you want to upgrade to silver/gold materials later on, its still great for learning the techniques with.

Build Quality

Tools, Board, Beads; Excellent

Findings; variable. Some were mishaped and all were quite soft. No complains given the very reasonable price charged.

Value for Money

FANTASTIC!! Quality tools and a great selection. Everything you need to get you started.

Would I buy it Again?

Yes! I’m recommending this as the perfect set for anyojne looking to try beading at an affordable price.

Summing up

Superb set! Try out ideas and techniques. A fantastic place to start as everything you need is included. I wouldn’t have bought a beading board if I’d bought all the items seperately, but as soon as I started, discovered the board made laying out designs much easier. The kit I bought was from their Ebay store, I bought the silver set but you can also get the kit with gold findings/wire.

This is THE best starter kit for a new hobby that I’ve ever bought. Try a new hobby for under £15, perfect for newbies and at an amazing price point. Would make a superb Christmas birthday/Christmas gift. Ideal for people of all ages and a great way to get the family together to create something. If you are looking to handmake gifts this is a wonderful kit to get you up and running.
