5 Tips On Styling Festival Jewellery

Layer and stack

When it comes to festival jewellery, less is definitely not more! Create jewellery that can be easily layered and stacking rings that compliment each other. It's all about going over the top and rocking the look with confidence!

Go big and bold

This is your chance to go outside your comfort zone and experiment with big and bold designs. Whether that's chunky rings, bracelets or necklaces! Our unique boulder opals natural turquoise and rough gemstones give you the perfect chance to use more techniques and make statement pieces.

Be colourful

Festival season hits in summer, which means the brighter the colour the better! Use a pop of colour in your designs or use a variety to really make them stand out. Or why not go gothic, with dark yet mesmerising designs - scroll down for our popular choker necklace featuring our black agate gem.

Use charms

Here at Kernowcraft we have a whole selection of charms which are perfect for festival season. They are a great addition to any piece of jewellery, dangle them from a bracelet or add them to a necklace!

Get creative

This is your chance to use techniques you have never used before or simply add a brand new selection of jewellery into your shop! Chokers are really in this season, so why not step out of your comfort zone and get creative making a beaded design? Arm cuffs, anklets and hand chain harnesses are also on trend - so, what will you create?

New necklace. It's hard to capture the golden tint or shiny surface of this oval faceted pyrite, but it looks fantastic stacked with other curved shapes!

10% off all tapered bead sets*! Use code - FESTIVAL

That's right, this festival season we want to give you a little treat. Our tapered sets make beautiful statement necklaces and are perfect to add to your summer collection or a fun project. 

These sets are particularly popular with beginners to jewellery making as they can easily be threaded onto a beading or necklet wire to make a simple necklace design. Try mixing with coordinating beads or mix several sets together to make a wider curve of beads. This works well using either two or three of the same colour gemstone, or as the sets are available in a range of different semi-precious stones you could mix different gemstones in complementary colours together to make a really special jewellery design.
