Choose Your Favourite Gemstone To Complete The Look

This sterling silver shell ring is so easy to combine with your favourite gemstone cabochon! The ring has a gallery setting, so you can simply pop in your favourite 6mm round cabochon stone and use a bezel rocker (or spoon if you don't have any tools!) to push the claws around the stone to hold it in place. This ring is also adjustable, making it a thoughtful gift for someone special.

Featuring coastal inspired bead and charm earrings! This beginner-friendly design requires a few tools and wire wrapping techniques to complete the look. Wire wrapped apatite gemstone beads are attached to sterling silver sand dollar charms and sterling silver earwires for a unique design.

Experiment with mixed metals

Slide on our sterling silver starfish charms onto our rose gold 24mm hoop earrings (also available in sterling silver) for a quick make! We love this combination of mixed metals, with the contrast of warm rosy tones and icy silver!

Create A Simple Charm Necklace

Another quick and easy make! Featuring our popular sterling silver whale tail charm with bail, which can be easily attached to your favourite chain. We've used our satellite chain as we love how it adds a little more detail to this minimal and modern necklace.

Explore our range of charms and chain to create your own necklaces - don't forget that most charms will require a jump ring to attach to your chosen chain.

Make Your Own Bead & Charm Elastic Bracelet

It couldn't be easier to make your own bracelet! All you need to do is add your favourite gemstone beads to Clear Stretch Magic elastic thread - adding charms is optional but we love how it can be easily customised to create the perfect personalised gift.

Go Minimal With Briolettes

We love the pop of colour of these aqua blue chalcedony briolette beads! They're also faceted, which makes them sparkle beautifully in the light. We've created a simple design by wire wrapping the bead using sterling silver wire and hung on earwires - follow our tutorial on how to wire wrap a briolette here.

Play Around With Gemstone Shapes

How wonderful are these apatite nugget beads? The best thing about beads is that they come in an array of shapes and sizes. Whether you love smooth beads, faceted or rough stones - the possibilities are endless!

Turn your beach treasures into something you can wear...

If you have a stash of sea glass and not sure what to do with it, why not turn them into necklaces that you can gift to friends and family! Use Devcon 5 Minute Epoxy Glue to attach your sea glass to our glue-on bails and attach ready-made chain - it couldn't be easier.
